There have been rumblings about a biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury for a while now, including those regarding Sacha Baron Cohen being cast, as well as the film’s troubled production and the exit of director Bryan Singer. But it’s all coming together now, and Bohemian Rhapsody finally has a new teaser trailer online. In case “Rami Malek plays Freddie Mercury” isn’t enough for you, here’s the official word on what the film is all about:
“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.”
Check out the official teaser trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody below. The film comes out on November 2nd, 2018.
