    Bohemian Rhapsody - The Movie: Official Trailer

    Looks like it good be a good movie about one of the great progressive bands of the 70's. Although it's really more about Freddie.

    I'm thinking this movie can only be a disappointment, hope I'm wrong.
    Having actually watched the trailer - I am wrong.

    It's got me digging out my Queen albums to discover them all over again, which can't be a bad thing.

    Hopefully cinema audiences will feel the same way after seeing the movie.

    This one might actually get me out to a movie theatre! After watching Mr. Robot I didn't think I'd be able to see Rami Malek as any other character, but now seeing this trailer, I'm thinking that he may be one of the more talented actors out there.

    Anything that Hollywood puts out about rock and roll is likely to miss the mark. I've gotta admit though, this one looks promising.

    IMO this deserves it's own thread.

    i feel another Best Of Queen collection is in the works to coincide with the film.
    as a longtime fan of Queen, i know there will be nothing in this movie we don't already know already.
    the actors who play Freddie & Brian look really good. a possible Oscar nod for Rami?
    the DVD will probably be out for Christmas...

    The trailer is interesting. I'll probably see it. But, Sacha Baron Cohen would have been perfect playing Freddie. I'm disappointed that he dropped out of the project.

    Didn't they go a bit overboard with Freddie's teeth? In the scenes where he has a mustache, his upper lip is pushed out so much the 'stache is in danger of disappearing up his nose...

    Unintentionally hilarious is what this film is likely to be on the basis of that trailer. I'm in!

    By the trailer it looks good. Queen fans should enjoy it. I'm not a fan of the band so it would be to torture for me.

    I think we must be well beyond peak 'Best Of Queen'. There must be a Best Of for every person on the planet, even if they can't remember buying a copy.

    Heh, exactly what I was thinking.

    Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman quotes in a thread about Queen. Really doesn't get much better than that.

    I do have the book and have read it but it's been so long I forget even what it was about except it was really cool.

    I watched the movie yesterday I quite liked it. There are some glaring anachronisms (for example, Fat Bottomed Girls playing in 1975 or We Will Rock You being written in 1980), but most of the audience won't know these details.
    The performance of the guy who plays Freddie is really superb! This was the most convincing part of the film. I wonder what would have Freddie said about it...

    My neice and boyfriend went to see it and said it sucked pretty badly, as expected. What particular amused me was that apparently they have been a little 'creative' in respect of when Freddie found out about his AIDS diagnosis, apparently placing it just before the climactic performance at Live Aid for extra dramatic effect.😀

    I thought it was really good. And I don't even like Queen that much.

    The NY Times panned it.

    I always thought the phrase was "that's entertainment" rather than "that's encyclopedic".

    If you are looking for something historically accurate, I suggest you find one of the many documentaries on Freddie and the band.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, especially the Live Aid portion. Malek played an excellent Freddie despite the excessive (even for Mercury) overbite. The rest of the actors playing the band members were fine in their roles. I thought the Mary-Freddie dynamic (while probably not entirely historically accurate) was done well in the film.

    Two stick microphones up for me!
