New QUEEN Biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" Trailer Shows Freddie Mercury's Highs and Lows

Rami Malek Is a Dang Rock Star in the New Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer New QUEEN Biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" Trailer Shows Freddie Mercury's Highs and Lows

Rami Malek is embracing the role of an icon. Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are producing the film's music.

Following an official teaser from back in May, 20th Century Fox shares a new trailer for its upcoming Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic, aptly titled Bohemian Rhapsody.

The trailer also features a number of stage performances, looks at Mercury's love life and hints at the singer's death in 1991. Although Bryan Singer gets sole directorial credit, he did leave the project towards the end of filming after clashing with those involved, and Dexter Fletcher stepped in to finish things up. There's a lot of that feel-good quality here, and no doubt Fox is going after a similar audience that turned its The Greatest Showman into a smash hit previous year, but I will say I'm still not entirely sold on Malek's performance yet.

It also seems like we'll be getting some of that famous Freddie Mercury humour, with one moment from the trailer showing drummer Roger Taylor yelling angrily: "How many more "Galileos" do you want?" - to which Mercury replies: "Roger, there's only room in this band for one hysterical queen".

"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". What comes from that effort is a discography of classics, from the movie's namesake "Bohemian Rhapsody" to later hits "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions". Rami Malek stars as Mercury and the film follows the band's meteoric rise, charts their near-implosion, and climaxes with their unforgettable performance at Live Aid.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" will hit theatres on November 2.
