Official trailer for Queen biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' out now

The trailer for the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is out now and we must say, any doubts we had about the film have been waived. The Queen frontman is played by actor Rami Malek, after comedian Sacha Baron Cohen left the role past year, explaining that he had a dispute with a Queen member over the second half of the film.

Company on the set it was Mike Myers, Joseph Mazzello, Ben hardy, Aiden Gillen, Lucy Boynton, Tom Hollander, and other actors. The role of Freddie Mercury was re-cast with Rami Malek and it is unbelievable how much he resembles and even sounds like Freddie Mercury.

That is the closest we get to taglining the rock band sensation Queen and their music.

As expected, the teaser for Bohemian Rhapsody starts off strong with Freddie Mercury's original vocals taken from his improvised vocalizations during Queen's Wembley Stadium concert in London back in 1986. "It's six bloody minutes!", as the trailer shows. Facing a life-threatening illness, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. The trailer, however, has already received some slight backlash.

The first trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody dropped on Tuesday, giving patient fans a tantalising glimpse into the film.

Like I said, the movie originally had X-Men director Bryan Singer at the helm.

"He and the band reached unparalleled success and Freddie became one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet, cementing a legacy that continues to this very day". Dexter Fletcher, who was originally slated to direct, was announced as Singer's replacement two days later. Rami Malek portrays the late Queen singer, rocking the stage with his iconic voice and performances.

Bohemian Rhapsody is scheduled to be released on November 2.
