Is this just real life? Is this just fantasy? Well, the answer to both is yes.
Queen fans got quite surprise on Tuesday, May 15, when 20th Centry Fox debuted the first-ever teaser trailer for their highly anticipated film, Bohemian Rhapsody.
The biopic — which stars Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers — follows legendary singer Freddie Mercury’s rise to fame, as well as the making of Queen’s iconic career.
The film’s synopsis reads as follows:
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.
Bohemian Rhapsody arrives in theaters on November 2, 2018. For now, watch the trailer — below!
