Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer (2018)
Trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy and Joseph Mazzello.
A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985.
Rami Malek was not the first choice to play the iconic Freddie Mercury. Ben Whishaw and Daniel Radcliffe were both linked to the role. But, it was Sacha Baron Cohen who was the original choice to play Freddie Mercury. He actually left the project due to creative differences with the band's guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. The deal with Baron Cohen fell apart after May voiced upset after finding that the project would only be a biopic of Freddie Mercury and not the rest of Queen. May felt that it should focus on the other members and the aftermath of Mercury's death. He also voiced his negative opinion of the casting choice of Baron Cohen, whom he felt was too much of a comedic actor who wouldn't do Mercury justice in drama.
It is great to see a film on the iconic band Queen. They have had so many amazing songs and the film will give people an inside look into the life they lead, especially the band's front man Freddie Mercury.
With now knowing the previous actors who were considered to play Freddie Mercury, it looks like it all worked out in the end and Rami Malek is a great choice. Not only does he look just like Freddie, but he seems to have all the moves down too. I cannot imagine Sacha Baron Cohen playing this role in a serious manner.
I just hope this film does not "bite the dust".
