Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
Directors: Dexter Fletcher, Bryan Singer


Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who 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, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Written by Twentieth Century Fox

    I know I'm speaking a little too soon, but I have to admit that I never thought this thing would ever hit the screens with as much production trouble as it's had.

    Thanks. Any who I'm excited for this. I was bummed when Sacha Baron Cohen was dropped because thought he would be perfect but this still looks good. Rami Malek actually looks like he can pull this off. It should be fun just jamming out to Queen while watching.
  • Looks really good, although I hope they don't gloss over the more sordid details about Queen and Mercury.
  • Yeah, would love to see this some time, and yeah, would like to know some background. I don't think I ever heard any gossip or scandals about Queen growing up.

    Did hear he was gay and had AIDS right at the end, but even then it wasn't reported like a scandal, he was about the first famous person to die of AIDS and was before AIDS got a lot a press in any form as I remember

    It was the cow...

    I love Freddie Mercury, his voice is phenomenal. Cant wait to see this.
    I did want to see what Sacha Baron Cohen could have done with this role, but it's fine.

    I just had a really dumb moment watching this trailer where it suddenly dawned on me that Malek won't be doing his own singing. It hadn't really occured to me before, even though it's sort of obvious - Mercury's voice was just too distinctive to nail down. On the one hand this looks decent. But the whole lip syncing to songs in biopics has always really bugged me, and I don't know if I'll be able to look past it.

  • Looks like it could turn out good but this worries me;

  • Looks good but I'm skeptical because they are glossing over Freddie's bisexuality and AIDS battle.
