20th Century Fox has released the first official teaser trailer and one sheet poster for the forthcoming Queen and Freddie Mercury biopic, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, out in cinemas nationwide on 24 October 2018.
Directed by Bryan Singer and Dexter Fletcher, from a screenplay by Anthony McCarten (based on a story by McCarten and Peter Morgan), the film stars Rami Malek as Mercury, alongside Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Allen Leach, Tom Hollander and Mike Myers.
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.
