Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ‘In the Heights’ Trailer Is Released

The first trailer for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “In the Heights” has debuted. The film tells the story of a mostly Hispanic neighborhood in New York City and centers around bodega owner Usnavi, played by Anthony Ramos.

It also stars Corey Hawkins, Marc Anthony, Jimmy Smits, Melissa Barrera, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Dascha Polanco and Stephanie Beatriz and is directed by Jon M. Chu of “Crazy Rich Asians” fame.

Based on the trailer, the movie sticks close to the Tony-winning musical on which it is based. The success of “In the Heights” was a precursor to Miranda’s mega-successful Broadway hit, “Hamilton.”

The Warner Bros. adaptation of “In the Heights” is scheduled to hit theaters next summer.  Take a look a the trailer at the link here.
