Mr. Robot star, Rami Malek is unrecognizable as he brings Freddie Mercury to life in the trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody, a biopic that celebrates the lead singer, “who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet,” and the British rock band Queen. Malek, 37, does a complete transformation to play the flamboyant musician in contrast to his famous role as the socially inept hacker, Elliot Alderson, on the USA Network hit show.
The trailer features many of Queen’s iconic songs “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which the film is titled after, “Killer Queen,” and “Another One Bites The Dust.” The upcoming biopic also stars Lucy Boynton, Aiden Gillen, Ben Hardy, Tom Hollander, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello and Mike Myers.
The film will open in theaters this November.
