See Rami Malek As Freddie Mercury In First Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer

20th Century Fox has released a terrific teaser trailer for the upcoming film BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.

In an interview with a United States radio station, Baron Cohen said the band wanted the death of Mercury to take place in the middle of the film, and for the second half of the film to follow the afterlife of the band.

Then, in December, after three months of filming, director Bryan Singer was sacked for being absent from the production on multiple occasions and clashing with the cast and crew. Malek has said "I thought when I got the part that this could be a career-defining performance".

The trailer revolved around many memorable sections of Freddie's career; starting from Mercury's shift from elegant ballet-tutu outfits of the 70s, to his butch preferences in the 80s.

But it's the depiction of Queen performing at Wembley Stadium for Live Aid in 1985 and the replicated massive crowd which will blow your mind. The biopic is also set to cover some delicate moments of Freddie Mercury's life including him discovering his sexual preferences, followed by his suffering from AIDS, until his unfortunate death in 1991. Sacha Baron Cohen (best known as Borat in the titular film) was due to play Mercury, but left the project in 2013 over disputes with the remaining Queen members over the direction of the film.
