Bohemian Rhapsody, the long-awaited Freddie Mercury biopic starring Rami Malek, will finally hit theaters on November 2nd, 2018. In anticipation, a new trailer has arrived online. Watch it below.
The film was written by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything) and focuses on a 15-year period from the formation of Queen and up to their performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before Mercury’s death.
Queen’s other members are portrayed by Ben Hardy (drummer Roger Taylor), Gwilym Lee (guitarist Brian May), and Joseph Mazzello (bassist John Deacon). Allen Leech, Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen, and Mike Myers also appear in supporting roles.
Bryan Singer was originally hired to direct the film, but was fired for being absent from the production on multiple occasions and clashing with the cast and crew. Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) was brought in to complete filming and post-production.
