'tick, tick... BOOM!' Teaser Trailer

Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut with tick, tick…BOOM!, an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, who revolutionized theater as the creator of Rent.

The film follows Jon (Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?

Starring Andrew Garfield, Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesús, Joshua Henry, MJ Rodriguez, Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, with Judith Light, and Vanessa Hudgens.

tick, tick...BOOM! is on Netflix this Fall.

This actually looks good?
No. I’m not interested in hearing Vanessa’s yell singing and she lost me with her Coachella tantrum. Leave her ass with the Christmas Prince 7 or whatever number they’re on.

I’ve only ever seen Andrew in Spider-man and the “lawyer up, asshole” scene from The Social Network so other than looking like he has a kid’s head on an adult’s body I have no opinion on him.

Wow behind-the-scenes really suites you, Lin!
Whenever I see anything about Vanessa Hudgens, I have flashbacks to her godawful singing in Rent at the Hollywood Bowl. Neil Patrick Harris lost some of his credibility to me when he cast her, but he swore up and down that she was going to be amazing as Mimi and then she was NOT.
i've never seen rent but Andrew does nothing for me. But i hope his fans enjoy it? lol
damn, that's a good trailer… andrew is no raul esparza tho so we'll see

i never really cared for rent but tick tick
boom has some great songs, "louder than words" in particular is fucking stunning
hope it features this song
The title makes me want to go listen to The Hives and maybe watch Burn Notice again.
We are on Season 4 of our yearly rewatch binge of Burn Notice currently. ☺️

It makes me want a movie or limited series so bad. I know some of the latest revivals have been horrible, but I have faith a Burn Notice one could be really entertaining.
Psych is getting another movie so it's not impossible!

Remember when USA was constantly putting our good shows?

It’s so sad what happened to him
I will watch it with the intention of hate-watching but who knows what will happen!
Didn't Larson steal Rent from another person? She was going off about it but I forget where I heard it from.

Also idk why but I always thought Larson was gay.
I think there are accusations it has similar characters/plot elements to a novel, but I can't remember the name of it. So not the songs themselves.
Playwright Sarah Schulman alleged that Rent bore striking similarities to her novel People in Trouble.

From Wikipedia:

Lynn Thomson was a dramaturg who was hired by New York Theatre Workshop to help rework Rent. She claimed that between early May and the end of October 1995, she and Larson co-wrote a "new version" of the musical. She sued Jonathan Larson's estate for $40 million and sought 16 percent of the show's royalties, claiming she had written a significant portion of the lyrics and the libretto of the "new version" of Rent.

During the trial, according to a partner in the firm representing the Larson estate, Thomson could not recall the lyrics to the songs that she allegedly wrote, nor the structures of the libretto she claimed to have created. The judge ruled against her and gave Larson's estate full credit and right to Rent. A federal appellate court upheld the original ruling on appeal. In August 1998, the case was settled out of court. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

I feel like 90% of people who hate Rent listened to the title track once and don't actually understand what the plot of the musical is.

I like Andrew Garfield a lot, but idk about this
Andrew Garfield is getting a ton of work, isn’t he?
I am living for all of these musicals because the more there are the more chances there are that some will be good and not dreck. (Broadway nerd here.) And I know it's cool to hate on LMM, but I think he's a hella talented motherfucker and I am here for anything he does.
Andrew Garfield isn’t my fave but he looks great as Jonathan Larson, so I guess I’m into it.
Somehow I missed that Andrew Garfield was cast in this or that it was coming out this year?? Anyway, I prefer this show to Rent and the trailer looks really good! Far more excited for this than Dear Evan Hansen.
andrew will never compare to raul esparza but i'm excited for this (although i will judge it based off how well they pull off 'therapy' because that is my favorite song from the musical).
