The trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody has been released. The film, chronicling the life of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury, stars Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) as Mercury. The trailer looks good, and Malek looks spot-on like Mercury, he really made an incredible transformation. The film will follow events leading up to the band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985. Mercury had arguably one of the greatest voices ever in the rock and is one of the most popular figures in the genre. Rami Malek seems the perfect choice to portray Mercury.

An official synopsis follows below.

“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 was always more like a family and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers, and music lovers to this day.”

Bohemian Rhapsody is co-directed by Bryan Singer and Dexter Fletcher from a screenplay by Anthony McCarten. The film stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. The remaining members of the band will be portrayed by Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon and Ben hardy as Roger Taylor. Also appearing are Mike Myers and Aiden Gillen.

Bohemian Rhapsody opens November 2.
