We’ve been so excited for the Queen biopic to hit theaters, and after significant cast changes and a few teaser images, we finally get our first look at the film with the new trailer.
Queen and the band’s frontman Freddie Mercury are unquestionable rock legends. Their music is instantly recognizable, and they defied stereotype and convention at every turn. The band is legendary, and a biopic on Mercury and Queen has been long overdue.
Happily, the first trailer for that biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, is here and backed by some of Queen’s most iconic songs as it highlights what trailblazers Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen were. The trailer highlights how unique their music was, specifically the song “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and shows us what Mercury went through to get his musical vision out to the world just as he envisioned it. Basically, this is a must-watch for any fans of Mercury, Queen, or even just good music.
If you’ve been following the creation of this movie, it’s been quite a long road to get this movie made. Originally, the role of Freddie Mercury was to be played by Sacha Baron Cohen, a casting announcement that came way back in 2010. While Baron Cohen ultimately dropped out in 20133 due to creative differences with Mercury’s bandmates, Mr. Robot star Rami Malek ultimately stepped in to play the legendary rock star.
And from the looks of the trailer, Malek seems to do a great job embodying Mercury. Not only does the film do a great job making Malek look like Mercury, but he also seems to embody that effortless coolness that made Mercury so iconic.
The film will tell the story of Queen’s meteoric rise into rock legend, the ways Mercury’s personal problems nearly destroyed the band, and their triumphant return and now-legendary performance on the eve of Live Aid.
This film has been in the works for a long time, and luckily, you don’t have to wait much longer to see it for yourself. Bohemian Rhapsody opens in theaters on November 2, and we just can’t wait.
