Rami Malek Embodies Freddie Mercury In First "Bohemian Rhapsody" Trailer

Check out the first trailer for the upcoming Queen/Freddie Mercury Biopic starring Rami Malek.

We’ve been excited for this movie ever since we got our first look at Rami as the famous Queen frontman last September.

Now, we get to not only see him in a single outfit or pose, but see him work a stage, work a recording studio, and speak as the man himself.

So without further delay ...

The teaser still gives us hope for a film that has had a lot of trouble behind the scenes. Though Rami Malek seems to be channeling Freddie Mercury to the best of his ability, the direction for the film was messy up until the end of last year.

X-men director Bryan Singer was the first director assigned to this film, and many worried that he would hold Bohemian Rhapsody back from its greatest potential.

On top of that, many were worried about Singer directing due to his shady past. Rumors of Singer’s sexual abuse have spread across Hollywood and beyond for years now.

Unfortunately, news started spreading in early December that Singer was becoming a problem on the set of Bohemian Rhapsody. He was calling in sick, showing up to set late, becoming a nuisance during filming, and even Malek himself had to complain.

This eventually led to Singer being fired from the project in early December and coincidentally he was sued a few days later for raping a teenager..

Despite this behind the scenes chaos, the Bohemian Rhapsody film is still moving on and the first teaser trailer is out. We’ll hope that Bryan Singer’s drama won’t have affected the film from becoming as good as it could have been.

In their description of the film, 20th Century Fox conveniently ignores Mercury's bisexuality and glosses over his AIDS diagnosis with the generic "life-threatening illness." One can only hope this is not a sign of things to come from the film.
