The first full trailer of the long-gestating Queen and Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, has been released onto the internet. Sacha Baron Cohen signed on to play Mercury in 2011, but stepped down from the role two years later, citing creative differences with the members of Queen.
"Bohemian Rhapsody" is a movie that follows the life of the band Queen and their lead singer Freddie Mercury.
It begins with the idea of how Mercury changed Queen's music and ends at the legendary Live Aid concert of 1985, six years before the death of Mercury.

He played youth football for Charlton before joining Villa, where he made almost 200 appearances between 1999 and 2007. Despite being born in south-east London, Samuel represented Trinidad and Tobago and earned two caps for his country.
The film has had a hard journey with the film's original director, Bryan Singer, replaced by Eddie the Eagle filmmaker, Dexter Fletcher. The trailer looks good, and Malek looks spot-on like Mercury, he really made an incredible transformation. There's a hint of a Martin Scorsese vibe in terms of the camera work, but again this is a curious case in which Singer was sacked before filming was completed and Fletcher-who was attached to an earlier iteration of this project-took over. The film honors the group's iconic lead singer, who died at the age 45 from bronchial pneumonia stemming from AIDs in November 1991, just one day after revealing he had contracted the disease.
What did you think of this trailer, will you be checking out this film? There were also reports that he clashed with Malek and co-star Tom Hollander.
The film is set for release in the United Kingdom on October 24 and the USA on November 2.
