The first trailer for the highly anticipated biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as Queen singer Freddie Mercury, is out and it will definitely give you goosebumps.
While we’ve already seen photographs of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the new trailer gives us a better look at what his performance of the iconic figure is like. The minute-and-a-half-long trailer opens with Mr Robot’s Malek engaging with his audience dishing out his typical showman charm. It’s truly unbelievable to see just how much of Freddie’s mannerisms the actor has managed to pick up.
“This is when the operatic section comes in,” Mercury tells a skeptical Brian May during the “Bohemian Rhapsody” recording session. Watch his performance, you’ll feel like you’re right there in the moment, seeing history unfold. Fans should be pleased.
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.
