The upcoming Queen movie, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ will be one of the hot commodities in the fall. Tomorrow (May 15) the band will release a full-length trailer for the movie, but appetites are being whet by the release of a 20-second sneak peak.
The video, which you can see below, set to “We Will Rock You,” features quick bursts of scenes from the film, including concert footage, with the band’s highlight performance at Live Aid. Also unveiled was a poster that features a sunglasses-wearing Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, with the words “Fearless Lives Forever.”
The trailer was first screened for critics at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last month, where, it received a mixed reaction. Malek, however, was singled out for his portrayal.
‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ will arrive November 2. According to its official synopsis,
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.
