He was basically just praising the movie and said he hasn’t felt this way about a movie that features a largely Latinx cast since SELENA.

Carefully curated out of the main cast and into the background you mean...

"Hi there, we represent The Broadway Better Business Players for a Better Tomorrow. We're trying to start a petition to get second rate shows taken off the marquee and with your help we can stop Mamma Mia from ever playing again." -Brad Jones in Suburban Knights

"Is it true you have Ralph Jr at the bottom of your purse in a jar of formaldehyde?" - Felicia
"No, but I wish I did so I could shove it down your throat!" - Bernadette

I wouldn't say that.  At all.

Selena didn't turn their Hispanic and Mexican characters into caricatures. 

I felt like the rough cut I saw of ITH did that a lot with the ancillary cast.

I hope they edit it well and reshoot a bit, because it could be an incredible film.

as great as this movie looks and as talented as the cast is, they should have cast more afro latinos. washington heights is a mostly black latinx neighborhood so to not have that many in the cast is disappointing. even if there is afro latinos in the movie, they are just gonna be in the background. we need afro latino representation in the fore front, not the background. amara la negra, christina milian, jharrel jerome, and mack wild wilds should have been cast in this. not having that many afro latinos in the cast is a missed opportunity for that type of representation imo.

Possible, of course, but most experts say things should be back to "normal" by late June given the higher ambient temperatures – the virus can't survive above about 80° F.

In the human body, the virus thrives because it uses our own cells to power and propagate itself.  Outside, it’s an inert thing subject to decay like other complex collections of molecules.

Actually, they are only hopeful about that, hoping the warmer weather diminishes the spread. Some people are saying worst case scenario is 6-8 months.

lin manuel said he hopes everything with the virus is over by the time the in the heights movie is out so we can watch it together and remember what it’s like to be together. this movie is literally about community and being together during hard times, overcoming them. It really is the perfect film to recover from this with.

I think Warner Bros will wait and see when people start returning to the movie theatres. Psychologically, I think people may not want to sit next to strangers for a while. There’s no point in putting it in the theatres unless they think they can recoup their costs quickly. It’s anybody’s guess at this point.
