The first trailer for Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” drops
The trailer for “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the Freddie Mercury biopic jointly directed by Dexter Fletcher and Bryan Singer, just dropped, and it jolts like a whiplash. You can watch the trailer by hitting the “play” button at the top.
Casting Rami Malek as the magnetic rockstar, Freddie Mercury, the film is described as 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.” Much of the events are set at the infamous Live Aid concert, a “global jukebox” charity event and doubtless one of the band’s most glorious, where they played their greatest hits, including the titular track.
Along with the trailer, 20th Century Fox also dropped an official key graphic for the film (see: to the right), showing Mercury towering against the De Lane Lea Studios in London. The film is written by Anthony McCarten (Steven Spielberg’s “Darkest Hour”) and stars Malek, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Ben Hardy, Mike Myers, and Lucy Boynton.
The film is slated for U.S. release on November 2nd. Us eager fans in the Philippines will have to wait five days when “Bohemian Rhapsody” on November 7, 2018.
