bohemian rhapsody director

When the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer dropped, the internet couldn’t help but notice that the trailer was missing one important thing: the director’s name. Well, maybe two things. But regardless, it was a little odd to leave out the name of the director, especially when the trailer for the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic proudly boasted that the film came “from 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises.”

Could it be that there was some contention as to whose name should go on the billing after original director Bryan Singer left partway through production and was replaced by Dexter Fletcher? Perhaps at the time — but now those issues are resolved. Singer will reportedly retain his title as the director of Bohemian Rhapsody.

freddie mercury sexuality

20th Century Fox debuted the flashy Bohemian Rhapsody trailer to much fanfare, but there were a few people that it didn’t rock. Primarily, former American Gods showrunner and Twitter extraordinaire Bryan Fuller.

Fuller took to his preferred social media platform to express his disappointment that the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer completely glossed over Freddie Mercury’s sexuality. The Queen frontman and the subject of the highly anticipated biopic (played by Rami Malek) was a closeted bisexual man who died from complications with AIDS. But the trailer and marketing for Bohemian Rhapsody seems to play fast and loose with the depictions of Freddie Mercury sexuality.

It’s been a long and hard journey for Bohemian Rhapsody, but as they say, the show must go on. No person better embodies the lyrics to one of Queen’s final songs as a band than Freddie Mercury, the glamorous, tragic figure at the center of this biopic that’s played here by Rami Malek. It’s a daunting task to portray the legendary Queen frontman, but in the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer, it looks like Malek more than steps up to the task.

Bryan Singer fired

Remember the old days – back in that enchanted time of, oh, about three or four years ago – when hearing about a director getting fired from a movie was something of a rarity in Hollywood? Lucasfilm has practically made it into a common practice since then with people like Josh Trank, Lord and Miller, and Colin Trevorrow famously falling to the wayside of various Star Wars productions, but before that, firing a director was considered a pretty big deal.

Now there’s a new non-Star Wars-related firing that’s making waves. Bryan Singer, the director of movies like X-Men, The Usual Suspects, and Jack the Giant Slayer, has been fired from Bohemian Rhapsody, 20th Century Fox’s Queen biopic that stars Mr. Robot actor Rami Malek as frontman Freddie Mercury. Yep, another one bites the dust.

Wayne's World - Mike Myers Joins Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s almost impossible to think of Queen’s signature tune “Bohemian Rhapsody” from their album A Night at the Opera without thinking of the sequence in Wayne’s World where Saturday Night Live veterans Mike Myers and Dana Carvey lip sync and head bang to their heart’s content. Therefore, it only makes sense that Mike Myers is currently in talks to take a role in the biopic about Freddie Mercury, the frontman of the aforementioned rock band. Read More »

Rami Malek carries the burden of portraying the first silver screen depiction of Freddie Mercury, and it looks like the Mr. Robot actor may just pull it off.

The first look at Bryan Singer‘s Bohemian Rhapsody biopic was released on what would have been the Queen frontman’s 71st birthday, showing Malek donning Mercury’s signature white tank top and mustache. It’s the first sign that the end is in sight for a movie that has had a long road to production since Queen and Sacha Baron Cohen first took on the project in 2010.

The Gifted Trailer

While Marvel Studios is preparing to play with their weak-sauce version of mutants in the form of Inhumans over at ABC (which doesn’t look very good at all), it looks like FOX might be the place to go if you’re looking for a better angle on people who just so happen to have superpowers.

The Gifted is a new series written by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-Men: Days of Future Past), both also service as executive producers alongside X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner, X-Men franchise writer Simon Kinberg, as well as Jessica Jones and Daredevil producers Jeff Loeb and Jim Chory. It’s been coined as an X-Men series, but that’s not entirely accurate because, in this series, the X-Men have disappeared for reasons unknown, leaving other mutants to fend for themselves as a government organization hunts them down and prosecutes them for using their powers.

FOX brought The Gifted to San Diego Comic-Con to show off some new footage from the series, and they also debuted a new trailer introducing us to the mutants who will be on the run in this promising new comic book series coming to TV this fall. Read More »
