Queen is about to make going to the movies a little more regal this autumn
After years of rumors, switching hands countless times, swapping out directors, switching personnel over and over, and in general being stuck in development hell, the highly anticipated Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is finally going to see a release.
The proof of this comes in the form of a minute and a half trailer for the film that just dropped earlier today through the official Queen YouTube channel as well as through other channels as well.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a film whose mission is tell the story of the formation and epic journey of Queen, culminating with their most iconic show they ever performed at London’s Wembley Arena for the Live Aid 1985 concert.
Playing the role of the iconic Queen front man will be Rami Malek, followed by Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor, Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, as well as Joseph Mazzello as bassist John Deacon.
The trailer features Mercury’s iconic vocal runs that he would have the audience try to match, followed by a mash-up of different Queen hits like “Another One Bites the Dust”, “We Will Rock You”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and more.
It shows the band recording the iconic track the movie is named after, various performances, the band hanging out, Mercury dazzling with his larger than life personality, and more.
One moment in the trailer that sticks out that truly illuminates Mercury’s quick wit and humor is during a brief scene where the band’s manager is telling them how the song “Bohemian Rhapsody” being six minutes is too long, to which Mercury responds:
“I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever.”
Bohemian Rhapsody is set to be released to theaters everywhere Nov 2.
Keep up with music at Salute.
