Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer

With just one week until the film starts hitting theaters, the final Bohemian Rhapsody trailer has arrived, and thankfully, this one offers a little more than a greatest hits assembly of cliched moments from a rock and roll biopic. Of course, the biopic tropes are still there, but this trailer actually hones in on the hardships that Queen faced, especially when it comes to frontman Freddie Mercury, played by Mr. Robot star Rami Malek.

Bohemian Rhapsody box office

Is this the real life? Well, it’s not a fantasy – a new report says that early tracking numbers for Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody suggest the long-in-the-works biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury could make as much as $30 million in its opening weekend. That would be enough to make it the second-highest opening ever for a music biopic. Find out what competition it has to beat below.

Elton John‘s rise to fame is the subject of Rocketman, but this is no mere biopic. Instead, it’s being billed as a “musical fantasy”, and this first Rocketman trailer certainly plays that up. Taron Egerton‘s Elton John isn’t just going through his life – he’s in the midst of an actual musical, with everyone around him singing and dancing. Watch the Rocketman trailer below.

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.

Directed by Vaughn Stein, the thriller follows two assassins on a mysterious mission in sinister city, where they run into all sorts of kooky characters, including Robbie’s beguiling waitress who may or may not be a serial killer.
