Queen releases first trailer for new biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

A trailer has been released for the upcoming biopic drama film about famed rock band Queen.

Rami Malek really digs into the Freddie Mercury role in this trailer and in this film.

Bohemian Rhapsody also stars Tom Hollander, Michelle Duncan, Allen Leech, Aiden Gillen, and Mike Myers.

Freddie Mercury (pictured here in 1986) and Rami bare an uncanny resemblance.

The clip then takes us back to the lates 70s: big long hair, tight trousers and aviators as the team make their way through airports, different gigs, different storylines and love interests, including how they came up with one of the best songs in history, the title of the film itself, Bohemian Rhapsody.

It's been a long feat to make even the trailer. Initially, actor Sacha Baron Cohen was chosen to play the legendary singer.

Saudi will pursue nuclear weapons if Iran does
Trump announced Tuesday the United States's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal , calling it "defective to its core". This amounts to a declaration of war'.

He wanted to show the nitty gritty of Mercury, including his party life, sexuality and wild ways.

The project further hit a roadblock after director Bryan Singer, was sacked after reportedly taking too much time off for "health concerns". Fans can check out Bohemian Rhapsody from November 1.

The film will of course place a special emphasis on Mercury, and this trailer gives us the best look so far at Malek in the leading role.

It imitates the turbulence of the band as well as their success as one of the most infamous bands in the history of music.

And yeah I know that it's not an action or sci-fi flick, but sometimes Hollywood stops diddling kids, tingling male taints, and putting aside their penchant for planting Quaaludes in some starlet cuties to actually make some worthwhile movies, and I suspect Bohemian Rhapsody might be one of them.
