The creator of “Hamilton” and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... “In the Heights.”

Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.

“In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

“In the Heights” stars Anthony Ramos (“A Star is Born,” Broadway’s “Hamilton”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton,” “BlacKkKlansman”), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s “Vida”), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s “In the Heights”), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s “Rent”), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s “Matilda the Musical”), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Dascha Polanco (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”) and Jimmy Smits (the “Star Wars” films).

Chu directed the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes, based on the musical stage play, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and concept by Miranda. Miranda, Hudes, Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs produced the film, with David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Behind the camera, Chu reunited with his “Crazy Rich Asians” production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He also collaborated with director of photography Alice Brooks (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (“Eighth Grade”). Original songs by Miranda. Alex Lacamoire (“Fosse/Verdon”) and Bill Sherman (“Sesame Street”) served as executive music producers. The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning “The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.”
“In the Heights” was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a 5000 Broadway / Barrio Grrrl! / Likely Story / SGS Pictures Production, A Jon M. Chu Film, “In the Heights.” Slated to open on June 10, 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It will be available on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release.

“In the Heights” is rated PG-13 for some language and suggestive references.

    Shoutout to the people who complained there weren’t enough Afro-Latino representatives in this movie… you didn’t watch it did you? I was crying within the first 5 minutes BECAUSE this was the first time I’ve ever seen so many people who look like my DR Afro-Caribbean family, Ramos even said this was for a long time the ONLY opportunity for Latino and especially Afro-Latino actors to get a break on Broadway. Either you didn’t watch it, you have a VERY narrow and probably stereotypical view of what being Afro-Latino really means, you want people to prove their blackness which is messed up in 19 different ways, and lord the people who said LESLIE GRACE was “white passing” you need help. I’m so happy to see all the love in this comment section but I was annoyed when I heard that bs complaint this morning

    I saw this in theaters two days ago and I’m honestly still in shock. Seeing latino and Hispanic culture on screen is something I’m definitely not used to, and it managed to address a lot more than i expected, like the pressure of being the first in a family to go to college, money problems, being undocumented and having unconventional dreams. I did have to translate some background Spanish for a friend though lol

    Para nuestro orgullo boricua Lin-Manuel Miranda, it’s incredible that the film version of his first musical, “In the Heights,” will be released the same year as the version of “West Side Story” by famed director Steven Spielberg. Miranda has been a fan of musicals since he was a child. During the Puerto Rican premiere of #IntheHeights, he told @Floricuas what Arthur Laurent’s musical #WestSideStory meant to him during his formative years. However, with ‘In the Heights,’ Miranda’s portrayal of the Latino community is a far cry from the Sharks, the name of the Puerto Rican gang in “West Side Story.” “In the Heights” tells the story of Usnavi, a young Dominican worker raised in New York, who dreams of making his father's goal of reopening a business in his home country come true. The movie is directed by Jon M. Chu (who also directed “Crazy Rich Asians”) and stars Anthony Ramos, who plays Usnavi. “In the Heights” was released last weekend in movie theaters and on HBO Max. “West Side Story” will be released in December 2021
