Rami Malek Channels Freddie Mercury in Queen Biopic


Our first look at the new Freddie Mercury biopic is finally here.

Rami Malek, Mr. Robot, perfectly channels Queen's lead singer. The movie is meant to celebrate Mercury and the band's iconic music.

The official synopsis describes the film 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."

The film has been in the works since 2010, but they hit a few speed bumps, including dropping Sacha Baron Cohen from the lead role. 

The movie is being called Bohemian Rhapsody and will be released November 2 in the U.S.
