First Look: Rami Malek is Freddie Mercury In ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
After a short teaser trailer yesterday, 20th Century Fox has released the first full trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody. With a screenplay by Anthony McCarten, Justin Haythe, Christopher Wilkinson, and Stephen J. Rivele the Freddy Mercury biopic traces the meteoric rise of the band 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. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Watch as we’re teased with their greatest hits and a band coming together to record the titular track, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ “It goes one for six bloody minutes” says an executive to which Rami’s Mercury says, “I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever.”
Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers also star.
