The excitement is mounting in my family when we saw the new trailer drop for the new film about the band Queen and Remi Malek from Mr. Robot has been chosen as Freddie Mercury. Personally I don’t think they could have come up with a better rep for the lead singer. Some ask, why Freddie and the band?
Legendary performers, by definition, are total one offs. There’ll never be another Prince, Whitney, or James Brown.e after all. The talent of folks like these are so astronomical that it defies music industry moulds, and creates new ones .One such performer is Freddie Mercury, until his death in 1991: you don’t even have to like Queen to know that Freddie—an electric performer and tireless musician—was one of a kind.
It only seems right to honor talent of that sort—flamboyant, extroverted—with a glossy, slick biopic, and now our first taste of Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie which tells the story of Mercury’s life and career in Queen, is here. The full film isn’t out until November 2, but you can see the trailer.
Notably, the film stars Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek ( absolutely looks the part as the iconic frontman, and the trailer is packed full of references to Queen’s most famous hits. Kudos folks for a film that everyone is looking forward to seeing.
