Rami Malek Embodies Freddie Mercury In The Spectacular First Trailer For ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
After years of feverish anticipation, the first trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody hit the web on Wednesday morning. And maybe it’s just the fact that its cut to some of the greatest music ever recorded, but it looks pretty bloody great.
The Queen biopic features Mr. Robot star Rami Malek as legendary frontman Freddie Mercury, and goddamn if he doesn’t look the part. The opening seconds of the trailer run us through Mercury’s various looks, from the band’s early days in London in 1970 to their iconic performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before the singer’s death.
And then of course there’s the soundtrack. The trailer includes snippets from ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Killer Queen’, ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and of course ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
