Bohemian Rhapsody is the long-awaited movie about the life of the late, great Freddie Mercury, which gives a chronicle of the years leading up to Queen’s legendary appearance at the 1985 Live Aid concert.
And now, a full trailer has been released.
Bohemian Rhapsody is released in the UK on October 24th, and the US still don’t get to see it until November 2nd!
Check out the trailer below:
The film traces the meteoric rise of the band Queen 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.
Mr Mercury is played by Rami Malek (Buster’s Mal Heart), and while he looks okay in this, my tip for the great singer was Assaad Bouab, who played Redouane Buzoni, one of the baddies in French heist drama, Braquo Season 4. As you can see, there, he is the spitting image of the man!
All that said, the cast for this film includes Mike Myers, who famously was into the track in question in 1992’s Wayne’s World.
Plus, when it comes to the singing voice of Freddie, I don’t know whether Mr Malek can cut it, but this trailer is certainly using the real Freddie.
Directors: Dexter Fletcher, Bryan Singer

Bohemian Rhapsody is released in the UK on October 24th, while the US don’t get to see it until November 2nd, so that’s a plus that we get it earlier than them. Hope it’s good!
