20th Century Fox on Tuesday released the first trailer for the upcoming Queen biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which stars “Mr. Robot” actor Rami Malek as Queen singer Freddie Mercury.
The brief preview includes a mash-up of several hits from the rock band in a career-spanning montage. “Another One Bites the Dust” opens the trailer, and there’s a scene that depicts the band’s process of making the film’s eponymous track, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
“Bohemian Rhapsody” will chronicle the trajectory of Mercury’s life and career with Queen, from the band’s early days in the 1970s to its seminal Live Aid performance in 1985.
Written by Anthony McCarten (“The Theory of Everything”) and directed by Dexter Fletcher, the film has been in production since last fall. The film’s first director, Bryan Singer, stepped away from the project in December, citing “a personal health matter.”
The movie also stars “Game of Thrones” actor Aidan Gillen and Mike Myers.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is set for release on November 2.
