Rock Rubber 45s is Bobbito García’s third film, a 96-minute documentary about his life as street basketball star, sneaker collector and designer and DJ. In the movie García sits down with old friends and musicians like Wesleyan alumn Lin-Manuel Miranda, Stevie Wonder and Questlove. The digital release is set for July 24, in the meantime there are screenings in numerous North American cities.
Check the trailer below.


When he was in Rome, Italy, for the premiere at the Ginnika Festival, Zero interviewed García and he said that Miranda’s featuring it was special for him and that is was filmed while the actor was in London.

Q: There’s a featuring that is special for you?
A: Yes, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s: it was the most difficult interview to do. He is always busy so we had to fly to London with the entire crew with only two days notice. Anyway, it was worth 1,000%. We respect each other so much and this mutual energy really shone during our chat for the film.

In Gallery you can find photos and screen captures from the trailer.

   

News: The June Hamildrop is “Boom Goes The Cannon” by Mobb Deep
Jun 18, 2018
News

On June 18, Lin-Manuel Miranda dropped the June Hamildrop, ‘Boom Goes The Cannon‘ from the hip hop music duo Mobb Deep. The song arrives almost one year after Prodigy, one member of the Mobb Deep, passed away; Miranda thanked the other member, Havoc, in a tweet.
The track is available for download and streaming.

J.Period, producer of The Hamilton Mixtape, confirmed on Instagram that the track was meant to be on that album but wasn’t finished in time.

Rolling Stone shared a few statements by Miranda and Havoc.

Lin-Manuel Miranda:

I feel so humbled and grateful that Havoc and Prodigy not only came to see us at the Rodgers in 2016, but were inspired to create this track before Prodigy’s untimely passing last year. Their lyrics, as ever, paint a vivid picture of friendship and solidarity in the face of overwhelming odds. I’m unbelievably proud to present new Mobb Deep music in 2018. This one’s for Queensbridge. ‘Boom Goes The Cannon…’ incorporates a sample of ‘Right Hand Man’ while Prodigy delivers his verse as George Washington, one of the characters from Hamilton.

Havoc:

It was an honor being part of the Hamilton project just on the strength alone I’m a huge fan of the musical; I am a history buff so it was right up my alley. This being one of the few last recordings I did with Prodigy definitely holds a special place in my heart and always will when I hear the record. Releasing the record now at this time of year after the passing of my partner in rhyme, Prodigy, is a great way to pay homage to him and continue not only Mobb’s legacy, but his as well. He’ll forever be my ‘right hand man.’

News: Warner Bros. Will Launch ‘In The Heights’ As 2020 Summer Event Pic
Jun 8, 2018
Movie Projects / News

DEADLINE: After winning the films rights to Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Tony-winning musical In the Heights in a heated auction for an estimated $50M, Warner Bros. has set a date for the feature adaptation directed by Jon M. Chu of June 26, 2020 in what will be positioned as a mass-appealing family musical prime for four-quad audiences.

At this point no cast is set, but Miranda is producing with the pic being adapted off Hudes’ script and Miranda’s music and lyrics. A decade ago, Miranda starred in the four-Tony-winning Broadway musical in which he played a bodega owner in Washington Heights who strikes it rich and plans to leave, until the pull of the neighborhood and the people in it give him pause. Miranda followed that up by creating Hamilton.

Deadline co-Editor-in-Chief Mike Fleming reported exclusively and extensively on the extrication process by which Hudes and Miranda publicly demanded and received the In the Heights films rights back from the Weinstein Co. after the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke in October. They wanted the property free of association of Weinstein with Hudes speaking out on social media and Miranda backing her up.

The auction that went down the first week of May between Warners, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Disney, Netflix and Apple entailed the studios receiving an early look at Hudes’ script with respective marketing departments involved in the pitch meetings to describe how they’d promote the film. Several studios dressed up back lots to resemble scenes in the movie.

June 26 is a prime date for In the Heights as the musical also takes place during the summer, with a positive emphasis on family and community. The only other studio wide release scheduled on that date is an untitled Fox Marvel movie.

Chu has Warners’ upcoming Crazy Rich Asians coming out on Aug. 15.
