Bohemian Rhapsody trailer

20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen. The biopic film, which hits theaters next week, has already been screened for various critics.

And while many have praised Malek’s performance, they also agree that the film suffers from far too by-the-numbers storytelling. However, if none of the behind-the-scenes drama that nearly all bands suffer interests you, then the compilations of songs used with the addition of creating the title song and the Live-Aid final is worth watching. Check out the latest trailer below.

The trailer pretty much spells out all of the struggles Mercury has gone through during his life. Here we see the feuds between his family and his fellow bandmates. The press questioning his sexuality. How the dark allure of fame destroyed his relationships. But then there’s the upside, which is the creative genius that created many of the great songs what we all now and love.

Again, it’s a pretty traditional way of seeing a cinematic biopic. One that plays it too safe. However, Malek’s chameleon-like change into Mercury will leave you absolutely stunned. He embodies the rock legend. There are even some scenes where it’s hard to tell if we are seeing Malek or if we are seeing Mercury.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie 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. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

The film also stars Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor, and Joseph Mazzello as bassist John Deacon. Lucy Boynton plays Mary Austin.

Bohemian Rhapsody hits theaters on November 2, 2018.
