“Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek is portraying Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” about the late Queen singer, and new fan-shot footage finds Malek recreating the band’s famous Live Aid performance from 1985. 

In the clip, Malek channels Mercury’s stage presence, moving across the platform to a piano, where he sits down to perform “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Still in production, the film is directed by veteran “X-Men” director Bryan Singer and written by Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”). 

It will chronicle the trajectory of Queen’s career through the 1970s to the aforementioned Live Aid performance in 1985. 

Entertainment Weekly debuted the first look at Malek’s Mercury last week. 

“Bohemian Rhapsody” is set to hit theatres on December 25, 2018.
