New photos have emerged from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody, and it’s fair to say that Rami Malek looks an impressive fit as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.
The biopic of the rock legends is set for release in November this year, and follows their journey to becoming one of the most enduringly popular bands in modern history.
Now, two new production stills have been released from the film, and they offer a glimpse at the depiction of one of Queen’s most iconic gigs.
In one photo, the band are seen peering out at a huge Wembley Stadium crowd for their legendary Live Aid show in 1985.
Another shows Mercury (Malek) preparing for a show backstage alongside Brian May (played by Gwilym Lee).
Alongside the two, the film also stars Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor and Joseph Mazzello as bassist John Deacon.
A trailer for the film also debuted at CinemaCon earlier this week, although it’s yet to be released to the public.
After years in development hell, Bohemian Rhapsody finally began filming last year – although it hit another roadblock when director Bryan Singer was unceremoniously sacked from the project.
He’s now been replaced by British director Dexter Fletcher.
Malek reportedly complained to the studio about Singer’s ‘unprofessionalism’ – with the pair reportedly involved in a number of altercations.
Announcing his departure in December 2017, Singer said: “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.”
