Share

The Bohemian Rhapsody trailer for the upcoming Queen biopic just dropped (below) and it looks bloody unbelievable.

The film charts the band's rise to stardom and the recording of some of their most memorable songs. There's a new trailer for the Queen biopic and it looks like a real treat. In the trailer Emmy-winning Mr Robot star Rami Malek sings his heart out like there's no tomorrow.

The movie will cover the time period from the band's formation in the 1970s through their performance at Live Aid in 1985. Bohemian Rhapsody also appears to be nailing the fringey, flowy, sepia-tinged 70s thing, right down to Brian May's handmade guitar and Freddie's one-man-Shakespearean-production costume changes. We're treated to the iconic Queen song "We Will Rock You", which has been used at sporting events for decades to pump up the crowd. Rami Malek seems the flawless choice to portray Mercury.

British director Dexter Fletcher took over Bohemian Rhapsody after gay director Bryan Singer was sacked amid on set arguments and Singer's leaving the set to resolve a family health emergency.

The film will tell the story of Queen's meteoric rise into rock legend, the ways Mercury's personal problems almost destroyed the band, and their triumphant return and now-legendary performance on the eve of Live Aid. Starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY hits theaters everywhereon November 2, 2018!
