Watch the first trailer for Queen, Freddie Mercury movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Watch the first trailer for Queen, Freddie Mercury movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Rami Malek, best known for his role in Mr. Robot, will play Freddie Mercury in a movie charting the ostentatious British rock band's rise to fame.

Bohemian Rhapsody will cover the period between Queen's formation to its celebrated reunion at 1985's Live Aid.

Director Bryan Singer was also fired from production late previous year.

The cameras began rolling past year, and it wasn't long before we received our first look - with early photos proving Rami Malek to be an uncanny fit in the role of Mercury.

Malik wasn't the original actor in line to play the flamboyant frontman Mercury, who died in 1991.

The project ran into more difficulty later on when the original director, Bryan Singer, was sacked after taking excessive time off for "health concerns".

Amusing enough, the teaser for Bohemian Rhapsody does not feature the song from which the biopic took its name.

"We had some nice times with Sacha kicking around ideas but he went off and told untruths about what happened". In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that was always more like a family and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers, and music lovers to this day.

Alongside Malik, the film will also star Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, Allen Leach, and Lucy Boynton.

Queen's lead guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor are serving as the film's executive music producers, which means the recreated songs and film score will probably rock us too.

Mike Myers and Tom Hollander will also appear in the film.

Speaking of "Bohemian Rhapsody", 20th Century Fox has launched a contest inviting fans to record their finest rendition of the iconic song on a mobile device, for the chance to have their voices featured in the film.
