The film stars Rami Malek as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury

2018-10-22

The new Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody is set to hit UK cinemas this week and Attitude obtained an exclusive clip of the upcoming movie.

Bohemian Rhapsody focuses on a 15-year period from the formation of Queen and the lead singer up to their performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before Mercury's death.

Malek joins a stellar cast including Gwilym Lee as Queen guitarist Brian May, Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello as bassist John Deacon, and Allen Leech as Paul Prenter, Mercury’s personal manager.

Mike Myers is also set to play an unspecified role.

As if all that drama wasn't enough, the Bohemian Rhapsody's original director, X-Men's Bryan Singer, was fired from the film three months into filming, and was eventually replaced with Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle).

Here's hoping the film itself is every bit as drama-filled as the real-life build-up...

Bohemian Rhapsody hits cinemas in the UK on October 24 and in the US on November 2.
