20th Century Fox previewed footage from the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” at CinemaCon earlier today, offering a first look at Rami Malek’s portrayal of the iconic band’s late frontman Freddie Mercury. New photos from the film have also been released online and can be seen below.
The film, originally directed by Bryan Singer who was replaced with Dexter Fletcher, also stars the likes of Joe Mazzello, Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee and Mike Myers. Anthony McCarten penned the script.
The trailer reportedly opens with Queen’s classic song “Bohemian Rhapsody” playing in the background as a young Mercury asks to be the lead singer of a band with one of the bandmates responding: “Not with those teeth, mate.”
Soon Mercury and Queen discover their sound, at one point Mercury saying: “If I go any higher, only dogs will hear it.” The ending is Mercury stepping out onstage at the iconic 1985 Live Aid concert, backed to a track of “We Are the Champions.” The film is slated to open in cinemas on November 2nd.
