For awhile now we’ve been getting nuggets of information on the Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, starring Rami Malek (MR. ROBOT) as the prolific musician. We’ve been teased with everything from set-pics, to an epic performance by Malek recreating the epic concert from the Live Aid show.
Now, we finally have a teaser trailer, and it looks awesome! Check it out below.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. Facing a life-threatening illness, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Admittingly, being a child of the ’80s, Queen was a little before my time, so I don’t claim to have as a big attachment to Mercury and Queen as I do to the glam bands of my day. But even though I might be familiar with the history of it all, their music has always been a part of childhood, and teenage years, and the more I see about this movie, I can’t wait for it!
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY hits theatres on November 2nd.
