First poster and teaser for Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody Rami Malek Freddie Mercury Movie

Having gone through some production hurdles in the past few years, Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Queen, has finally got a trailer and a release date.

The movie will cover the time period from the band's formation in the 1970s through their performance at Live Aid in 1985.

Ali G star Sacha Baron Cohen was originally meant to play Freddie, but creative differences saw him being replaced by Malek.

Was it really only months ago, in the fall of 2017, when the first image of Rami Malek as Queen lead singer/absolute legend Freddie Mercury blew us all away?

Bohemian Rhapsody is due for release on 24 October in the United Kingdom, 1 November in Australia and 2 November in the US.


The trailer opens with a strong chorus and sees Malek impersonate Mercury so well that it becomes hard to distinguish one from the other. The cast includes Allen Leech as Mercury's personal manager Paul Prenter, Ben Hardy as Taylor, Gwilym Lee as May and Joe Mazzello as John "Decay" Deacon, the bassist and composer who handled Queen's financial dealings. The original directer Bryan Singer was sacked after production on the film was briefly halted.

Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie about the iconic 1970s and '80s rock band Queen, has been in development for nearly a decade. Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) took over as director after Bryan Singer left the project.

It looks like Fox is ready to rock audiences with Bohemian Rhapsody. The film honors the group's iconic lead singer, who died at the age 45 from bronchial pneumonia stemming from AIDs in November 1991, just one day after revealing he had contracted the disease.

"I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever", Rami's Mercury fires back.
