Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'tick, tick... BOOM!' trailer and first single revealed ahead of its Netflix release
The autobiographical movie musical about the Rent creator Jonathan Larson is Lin-Manuel Miranda's first outing as a feature film director
The first single from tick, tick... BOOM!, Netflix's latest movie musical, has now been released, with Andrew Garfield singing the protagonist role of Jonathan Larson.
The autobiographical film pivots around the character of Larson, the creator behind the highly successful musical Rent, first performed on Broadway in 1994. The musical was loosely based on Puccini's opera La bohème.
This new Netflix musical adaptation is the directorial debut for musical theatre legend Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of Hamilton and In the Heights.

The first track to be released is '30/90', performed by Andrew Garfield with accompanying vocals from the film's other lead actors including Joshua Henry and Vanessa Hudgens, who may be familiar to movie musical fans as the star of the High School Musical series.
If it tickles your fancy, you can download or stream the rest of the soundtrack from Friday 12 November, the same day the film is released in UK cinemas. It lands on Netflix the following week.
Released alongside the first single is the full-length trailer for the film.
