Official trailer for Queen biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' out now

"This film has been 8 years in the making but I truly believe that it's been worth it because I'm so proud of what we've accomplished", explains producer Graham King.

In the newly released trailer, Rami Malek dons the singer's iconic white vest and moustache and rocks the mic with style in the first trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody.

Of course, the story they're referring to is of Queen's legendary frontman Freddie Mercury, who will be portrayed by Rami Malek in a performance that has already received praise from early screenings.

The movie traverses Queen's rise to fame with its lead singer Freddie Mercury at the helm of the success in the 1970s and the more triumphant period in the 80s.

BT Sport to show Champions League final free online
TV3 and Virgin Media will dominate Irish TV coverage of the Champions League and Europa League for the next three seasons. BT Sport subscribers will also be able to enjoy 360-degree highlights on the app throughout the games.

Upon seeing the teaser and the synopsis, TV producer Bryan Fuller noticed that 20th Century FOX seemed to omit the late rocker's sexuality and his AIDS diagnosis. Bohemian Rhapsody is directed by Eddie the Eagle's Dexter Fletcher, who took over from Bryan Singer (X-Men) who was sacked mid-production.

What's interesting is, Fletcher is also set to direct a biopic on Elton John's life called Rocketman.

The short trailer - barely a minute and a half long - opens with Malek (a very believable Mercury) engaging with his audience dishing out his typical showman charm. The movie also presented Mercury's life and career being one of the best frontmen and the greatest vocalists. The Emmy victor is known for the lead of the psychological thriller TV series Mr. Robot which achieved a wide commercial success.

So far, things are looking good for Bohemian Rhapsody.
