Here’s a look at Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody

Damn, but Rami Malek looks like Freddie Mercury. The movie follows the rise of Freddie and Queen from about 1970 through to the band’s triumphant performance at Live Aid,

Here’s the official summary of the film.

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.

Let’s take a look at what to expect November 2.
