It’s hard to imagine that this movie will end up featuring the level of drama for which its troubled production has become infamous. Starting with Sasha Baron Cohen abandoning the role after living members of Queen wanted to change the script to take more focus away from Freddie Mercury, to the hiring of Mr Robot star Rami Malek, and the firing of director Bryan Singer just a couple weeks before the end of shooting… This movie was a logistical mess. Still, the managed to get it done and we’ve finally got the first trailer for it.
Bohemian Rhapsody opens in theaters on November 2nd and stars Rami Malek, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Lucy Boynton, Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, Allen Leech, and Aaron McCusker.
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.
