“In the Heights” Disappoints With $11 Million Opening Weekend, receives backlash for lack of Black Latinx Representation

According to Variety,

In the Heights,” the acclaimed adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway show, didn’t hit all the right notes in its box office debut.

The Warner Bros. musical generated a wane $11.4 million from 3,456 U.S. theaters in its first four days of release, below earlier expectations suggesting the feel-good film would reach $20 million. “In the Heights” also opened on HBO Max, the streaming service owned by the studio’s parent company WarnerMedia, though the company didn’t report its digital viewership.

In a surprise defeat, Paramount’s “A Quiet Place Part II” returned to the No. 1 spot in its third outing with $11.65 million from 3,800 screens.”

The film has also been catching fire for not having enough Black Latinx Representation in the movie.
