I’m excited for this. I’m a sucker for huge musicals. Saw that the main guy was also in A star is born. Lol. What??? It’s been a while but i cant remember his face in that movie

Finally a musical that isn’t afraid to show it is a musical during a trailer.February 11, 2020 at 6:55 am #1203342772
Lin-Manuel Miranda has just confirmed that he has written an original song for the end credits of the upcoming film. Maybe he’ll have another shot of completing his EGOT next year.

Due to ongoing cases of the coronavirus, Warner Brothers has postponed the upcoming film indefinitely.

Looks like Lin will have to wait yet another year for his EGOT.June 26, 2020 at 5:18 am #1203552639
Today’s the day In the Heights would’ve been released in movie theaters nationwide had it not been for the coronavirus pandemic. If it was released today, I think we probably would’ve gotten our first trailer to Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story given that they’re both big movie musicals featuring a number of Hispanic performers in their casts. While we do have to wait another year for In the Heights, we’ll at least be getting a live taping of Hamilton with the original Broadway cast on Disney+ one week from today.June 29, 2020 at 3:40 pm #1203557903July 29, 2020 at 12:43 pm #1203612955July 30, 2020 at 5:11 pm #1203616782This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.November 15, 2020 at 9:53 am #1203838763
I just recently watched Hamilton and thus had the urge to rewatch the trailer. Although I find some of the lines in there a bit cheesy, honestly, I think this could be incredible. The song featured in the trailer sounds absolutely fantastic (I always have to fight the urge to already listen to it but I prefer to first watch the musical and then listen to the songs) and the shot of the two dancers walking up the house wall and going over the edge of the roof gives me goosebumps. If this is what I expect it to be, I think it could be in contention to be a Best Picture nominee, maybe even win-competitive.
For Your Consideration:
The Banshees of Inisherin in ALL categories, including:
- Best Picture
- Best Director
- Best Actor (Colin Farrell)
- Best Supporting Actor (Brendan Gleeson)
- Best Supporting Actor (Barry Keoghan)
- Best Supporting Actress (Kerry Condon)
- Best Supporting Actress (Sheila Flitton)
- Best Original Screenplay

^I’m not so sure if it’ll end up going that far. While the original Broadway production did win the Tony for Best Musical and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, In the Heights hasn’t necessarily been considered to be a prestigious musical (especially in the mold of something like Les Misérables). Not to mention that this movie is currently scheduled to come out in June, and we’ve seen how hard it can be for films released earlier in the year to become big Oscar contenders (although it does help that the Academy is planning to give voters more time to catch all movies being released year-round as opposed to just the fall starting next year). Though I do think In the Heights could have potential to do well at the Golden Globes.Not now
