Can anybody find me somebody to go watch Bohemian Rhapsody with me?
The first trailer for the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is finally here, and let’s just say we can’t wait to (re)obsess with the 80’s rock band this fall.
Set to a mash-up of the classic Queen songs Another One Bites the Dust, Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen and We Will Rock You, the teaser trailer unveils 90 seconds of footage from the film, including replications of concerts, recording sessions, the band’s rise to fame and excessive lifestyle. “The only thing more extraordinary than their music,” reads a series of graphics, “is his story.”
For years it was believed that Sacha Baron Cohen would play Mercury in the highly anticipated biopic, but just last summer it was formally announced that it’d be Mr. Robot star Rami Malek who would play the iconic singer.
Fans of the band were in the fence with the casting, but after this trailer, Malek’s resemblance to Freddie Mercury is so impressive that the transformation has people on Twitter questioning whether if this is real life or if it’s just fantasy.
