20th Century Fox has released a teaser trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, the Queen movie starring Rami Malek (Mr. Robot, Short Term 12) as frontman Freddie Mercury.
The movie follows the ups and downs of the band on their path to one of the greatest concert performances of all time. You can read an official synopsis for Bohemian Rhapsody and see the first trailer and a poster below.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. Facing a life-threatening illness, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Starring alongside Malek in the movie is Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express, Sing Street), Gwilym Lee (Midsomer Murders, Jamestown), Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse, Only the Brave), Joseph Mazzello (Jurassic Park, The Social Network), Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones, Maze Runner), Tom Hollander (Pirates of the Caribbean, In the Loop), and Mike Myers (Wayne’s World, Austin Powers).
It’s written by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything, Darkest Hour) and Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, Rush), and directed by Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle, Wild Bill), who stepped in to replace previous director Bryan Singer after he was fired from the project.
Bohemian Rhapsody will be released in theaters on November 2nd.
