A very brief teaser for Bohemian Rhapsody has been released, and it’s the first hint that Rami Malek is the perfect fit as Freddie Mercury.
The 10 second teaser comes ahead of the full trailer later today, and provides our first glimpse of the Mr Robot star performing as the legendary Queen frontman.
In the brief clip, we’re given our first glimpse of the band’s iconic Live Aid show, while another moment shows Malek as Mercury during the band’s formative years.
Check out the teaser in full below, which is sound tracked to the iconic strains of ‘We Will Rock You’.
The brief teaser comes ahead of the film’s eventual release on November 2, after it was pushed forward from an original Christmas Day release.
Along with Malek as Mercury, the film also stars Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor and Joseph Mazzello as bassist John Deacon.
Although originally directed by Bryan Singer, the film now boasts the direction of Dexter Fletcher after a serious of disagreements resulted in Singer being dismissed last year.
“I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first,” Singer wrote at the time.
“Bohemian Rhapsody’ is a passion project of mine. With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control.”
