The story of the iconic musical group gets told as 20th Century Fox releases the official trailer for their upcoming bio-pic feature Bohemian Rhapsody. View trailer below.
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.
While I am part of Generation X, I do remember first hearing about Queen from my parents (during my childhood). Of course, I know of all of their famous songs and probably “Bohemian Rhapsody” the most from watching Wayne’s World when I was younger. many of my generation, I don’t know much of the story (i.e Behind the music) of Queen, so I find this movie to be quite interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing it and how the moviegoers everywhere. Who knows….maybe this movie gets some “Oscar buzz”….let’s hope so.
Bohemian Rhapsody opens in theaters on November 2nd, 2018
