Hamilton helmed by Thomas Kail also stars Leslie Odom, Jr.as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens and Philip Hamilton along with others.
Now that Hamilton is less than two weeks away, we've gotten the movie's trailer, and its rating. This information comes from the man who created and starred in Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, who noted on Twitter how due to Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rules, any movie that has more than one utterance of "fuck" automatically gets an R-rating. Free trials are standard practice among streaming platforms, including Disney-owned Hulu and rival Netflix, each of which let you tune in for 30 days before committing to a membership; newbie HBO Max offers seven days for free.
However, it was announced last month that the release was being pulled forward, to be streamed on Disney+ ahead of the US Independence Day weekend, in light of the coronavirus pandemic having closed theatres and axed touring productions.
"Hamilton", which opened on Broadway in 2015 and quickly became the hottest ticket in town, uses hip-hop to tell the story of founding father and America's first treasury secretary Alexander Hamilton.
The movie version of "Hamilton", the beloved Broadway musical that won 11 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, was set to hit theaters October 15, 2021.
Miranda went on to explain how the lyrics would sound different from the original Broadway cast recording. It has received a record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations in 2016, and eventually bagged 11. "1 of the only motives I can stand that kind of focus is that I have not seen it", he instructed Leisure Weekly.
