Bohemian Rhapsody: The Teaser Trailer

The official teaser trailer for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' has been released. A celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.

The documentary film traces the 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.

Starring Mr Robot’s Rami Malek as Mercury (originally set to be played by Sacha Baron Cohen but who left due to 'creative differences') and directed by Dexter Fletcher (following the dismissal of Bryan Singer halfway through production), the movie is due to be released in the UK on 24th October.
