Both Sides Now (by Joni Mitchell) 
All I had was a melody and an image of someone lamenting something. Walking around through my neighborhood, with all of the Christmas lights, I had this song in my head that I just could not place. The only thing I did know was a...

Werewolves Within (dir. by Josh Ruben) 
Mention the name Ubisoft to most people, and most responses are about their videogames. Assassin's Creed, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, and my personal favorite, Tom Clancy's The Division. Ubisoft also has a movie production arm to it, along with an effects division called Hybride. With...

Washington Heights takes center stage with the In the Heights Trailer 

Lin-Manuel Miranda brings his Hamilton magic to Washington Heights, New York. Under the direction of Crazy Rich Asians’ Jon M. Chu, In the Heights looks to be a sweet summer film. Just look at this cast:

Anthony Ramos (She’s Gotta Have it)
Melissa Barrera (Starz’ Vida)
Marc Anthony (No introduction needed)
Jimmy Smits (Come on, should I even try?)
Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent, Wild Things)
Dascha Polanco (The Irishman, Orange is the New Black)
Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, One Day at a Time)
Corey Hawkins (Kong: Skull Island, Straight Outta Compton)

Of course, having directed both Step Up 2: The Streets and Step Up 3D, Chu looks like he makes easy work of handling the dance numbers and musical arrangements. You couldn’t ask for a better pairing between him and Miranda.

The film is an adaptation of the Tony Award Winning Best Musical  by Miranda, based off of Quiara Alegria Hudes’ novel. If this works out, here’s hoping we get a theatrical version of Hamilton as well.

Enjoy.
