See the first poster and trailer for the Freddie Mercury biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

I don’t know about you but I’m a lot more excited about Bohemian Rhapsody, the Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic starring Rami Malek, than any Avengers movie.

Studio 20th Century Fox has just released the film’s official poster and trailer and writes in a synopsis: “Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping 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 film traces the meteoric 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.”

    What does “Bohemian Rhapsody” have to do with any Avengers movie, Greg? Are you channeling your inner Jodie Foster?

    BTW, From what I’ve read, it’s not a Freddie Mercury biopic. It’s a film about Queen “the band”. I’m sure it will be made palatable for the mainstream audiences. I love Queen the band, but have no interest in seeing this film.

  3. Yay! Another gay movie starring a straight actor. How brave! How original! Watch him win all these awards and commendations. And nary an openly gay actor in any of the larger supporting roles. Thanks again Mainstream Hollywood! Nothing says “inclusivity” like discrimination and marginalization. I think I’ll pass on this one as well.

  4. I have no idea what you are talking about.

  5. It might be a movie with a gay character played by a straight actor, but on the bright side, they didn’t white-wash the role of Freddie here. Freddie was ethnically Persian and Rami Malek’s heritage is Egyptian, so at least racially, they’re not using a white actor to play a person of Middle Eastern heritage. And as a huge Queen fan who has seen Queen in concert twice and who has seen We Will Rock You the musical three times, knowing that this film was made because the surviving band members wanted it to be made, and that the band had a lot of input into the film, and that they support the film, I’m definitely planning to go see it when it comes out. I’ve been waiting for it ever since it was first announced years ago.
