Watch the Brand New Trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, the Long-Awaited Biopic on Freddie Mercury & Queen

“Talk of a movie about [Fred­die Mer­cury], who died in 1991, has gone on for years: Dex­ter Fletch­er came up as a poten­tial direc­tor, and for the role of Mer­cury both Ben Wishaw and Sacha Baron Cohen have at dif­fer­ent times been attached. But now the film has entered pro­duc­tion, hav­ing found a direc­tor in Bryan Singer, he of the X‑Men fran­chise, and a star in Rami Malek, best known as the lead in the tele­vi­sion series Mr. Robot.”

That’s how our Col­in Mar­shall intro­duced a post last fall which, among oth­er things, gave us a first unof­fi­cial glimpse of Rami Malek as Fred­die Mer­cury. Now comes the first offi­cial glimpse of Malek as Mer­cury. Above, watch the new­ly-released trail­er for Bohemi­an Rhap­sody, the long-await­ed biopic that explores 15 years in the his­to­ry of Queen–from the for­ma­tion of the band, to their cap­ti­vat­ing, career-defin­ing 1985 per­for­mance at Live Aid, pre­vi­ous­ly fea­tured on our site here.

Enjoy the trail­er, and look for Bohemi­an Rhap­sody to hit the­aters on Novem­ber 2.
