The first trailer for Queen movie, Bohemian Rhapsody has dropped – and it’s a well-cut affair that puts the hits first and story second. This looks like it just might work – but it’s important to note that there’s no reference to the film’s director.
Bryan Singer was cut loose with just 2 weeks to go and replaced by Dexter Fletcher and I get the feeling there’s going to be behind-the-scenes wrangling to see who scores the credit before Bohemian Rhapsody opens on 2 November, 2018.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. Facing a life-threatening illness, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
