  • Posted 5 days Ago

After years of speculation, cast changes, and teasers, the first official trailer for Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has finally arrived. Directed by Dexter Fletcher (following Bryan Singer's firing from the role), it stars Rami Malek in the lead role as the charismatic singer, alongside Ben Hardy (Roger Taylor), Gwilym Lee (Brian May) and Joseph Mazzello (John Deacon).

"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," reads the synopsis. "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."

Release is set for 2 November 2018.
