The new trailer for the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” has just been released.

Rami Malek (Night at the Museum, Old Boy) takes on the role of the Queen frontman, his uncanny resemblance to the iconic stadium rocker created buzz among fans since the first images of him appeared online early this year.

In the trailer, we see a lot more of the hirsute Malek as Mercury and the band, including a glimpse into the creation of the titular 1975 classic. 

Here is the official synopsis from 20th Century Fox:

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.
