The long awaited bio pic for Queen and Freddie Mercury finally seems to be on its way. The movie has been in the works since 2010 and today we finally get to see a full length trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody. The movie will star Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury himself. The role was originally being portrayed by Sasha Baron Cohen however he left the project early on stating “creative differences” with the band’s original members. Bohemian Rhapsody hit another snag when director Brian Singer was fired from the project in late 2017 but was quickly replaced by Dexter Fletcher.
It finally seems that all that trouble is in the past and Bohemian Rhapsody is set to hit theaters November of this year. The trailer itself really hits home, featuring almost every iconic Queen song and introducing viewers to Rami Malek’s portrayal of the amazing Freddie Mercury. I for one can not wait for this film to finally come to theaters and will enjoy every minute of it! The official synopsis from Twentieth Century Fox describes the film as:
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who 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, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Bohemian Rhapsody will be in theaters November 2, 2018.
