First Trailer for Upcoming Queen Biopic, "Bohemian Rhapsody," Released

The first full trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, the new biopic about Freddie Mercury and Queen, hit the internet this morning. Starring Rami Malek of Mr. Robot fame, the film will tell story of the band from its formation through its climactic performance at Live Aid in 1985.

Set for release in the U.S. this coming November, the film has been in development since at least 2010, having met a number of production hurdles since that time. Initially, Sacha Baron Cohen was slated to play Mercury but left the project over apparent differences with surviving Queen members, including guitarist Brian May. The film also saw original direct Bryan Singer being replaced by Dexter Fletcher midway through production.
