Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer

"This is when the operatic section comes in." 20th Century Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Bohemian Rhapsody movie, telling the story of the famous 80's rock band Queen and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Rami Malek stars as Mercury, in this exciting, energetic chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985. This is also the movie that was being directed by Bryan Singer, before he was fired and replaced by Dexter Fletcher while in production. The full cast includes Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers. I've been waiting to get a glimpse at this, and it looks great so far! There's a health amount of good footage in this first teaser, but I'm very happy with our first glimpse and I honestly can't wait to see more. Rami looks out of the world amazing in this. Rock on.

Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Dexter Fletcher's Bohemian Rhapsody, from YouTube:

Bohemian Rhapsody Poster

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 is directed by English actor-turned-filmmaker Dexter Fletcher, director of the films Wild Bill, Sunshine on Leith, and Eddie the Eagle previously. Fletcher took over after Bryan Singer was fired part of the way into production. The screenplay is by Anthony McCarten and Peter Morgan. Fox will release Bohemian Rhapsody in theaters everywhere starting on November 2nd this fall.

Awesome! Looking forward to it! Sasha Baron Cohen would be a better physiognomical fit (to such an extent that I believe when dressed properly you would not be able to tell him apart from Mercury himself), but Rami Malek seems a good alternative as well.

I'm not so sure on that. I think Cohen is a bit TOO campy. Yes Freddie was a QUEEN when it came to campy and having fun but I dont know if Cohen would have been the right fit. I love Malek's look. (and whoever is playing Brian May...HOLY HELL...PERFECT!)

Cohen had the physicality for sure.

Sasha Cohen would so much fit this role.. It's a pity he dropped off.

I really wonder how much of this is Bryan Singer's touch? But this looks really god and fun! It's going to be good singing in the theater!

I was a lil thrown of Rami playing the great Freddie but man he looks ideal right now in the trailer!

Love queen music. Not interested by Freddy's debauchery. Plus, Rami isn't convincing as Freddy.

Boom! Looks great. 80 percent of the role is pulling off that mustache.

DAVIDPD on May 15, 2018


Well, we know the soundtrack will be awesome. I'm really interested in Malek's performance. I also wonder if the current surviving members of Queen are irritated that Freddie is the only band member represented on the poster...

My wife just adored him and the Queen, so I dragged along listening to it. I wasn't really hooked, but it wasn't bad thing either and I just might check this out. And I like seeing Rami doing something less introspective and existentially deep...

First Queen biopic so you kinda have to give it a chance. The remaining Queen members were very adamant about having this film focus on the entire group and not just Freddy so, that in itself makes me want to see it more.
