The brand new trailer for the upcoming Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” has finally been unveiled ahead of its November 2 release date.
The clip features Emmy-winning “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek as frontman Freddie Mercury, with the eagerly anticipated film following the iconic band’s journey to superstardom.
The trailer shows the group — also consisting of John Deacon (played by Joseph Mazzello), Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) and Brian May (Gwilym Lee) — forming back in 1970 before the camera cuts to them creating the masterpiece that is “Bohemian Rhapsody”, among numerous other hits, in the studio.
The movie leads up to the group’s legendary appearance at the Live Aid concert back in 1985, which attracted more than a billion viewers worldwide.
The release comes after the movie’s original director, Bryan Singer, was reportedly fired in December after going AWOL following a Thanksgiving break.
Singer, who was then replaced by “Eddie the Eagle” director Dexter Fletcher, said at the time that the studio did not permit him to tend to an ill family member.
He said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter: “I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honour the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first.”
