Ahead of In The Heights in cinemas this summer, two new trailers have been released. The In The Heights movie adaptation will be available to watch from June 18, both in cinemas and streaming exclusively on HBO Max.

Set in New York's Washington Heights, In The Heights tells of a Hispanic-American community whose way of life is being threatened by a changing society around them. Audiences meet Usnavi, a bodega owner who dreams of a better life, both financially and romantically too.

In The Heights premiered at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in March 2008, running for three years and winning five Tony Awards including Best New Musical. The musical features a book by Quiara Alegría Hudes, with music and lyrics by Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Casting for the In The Heights film includes Anthony Ramos as Usnavi, who was recently listed in the Time100 Next list, honoring the next generation of influential figures. Leslie Grace plays Nina Rosario, with Daphne Rubin-Vega as Daniela, Corey Hawkins as Benny and Melissa Barrera as Vanessa. Miranda makes an appearance too as Mr. Piragüero.

In The Heights is in cinemas from June 18. You can watch the new In The Heights trailers below, as well as the first eight minutes of the film, released on June 7.
