The highly anticipated biopic of music legend Freddy Mercury and his rise to fame with British rock band Queen has finally released its first trailer.

And yeah I know that it's not an action or sci-fi flick, but sometimes Hollywood stops diddling kids, tingling male taints, and putting aside their penchant for planting Quaaludes in some starlet cuties to actually make some worthwhile movies, and I suspect Bohemian Rhapsody might be one of them. Despite the fact that the short teaser has not yet shown any of the aforementioned points, Rami Malek has promised that he filmed his role as Freddie Mercury truest to the original character, and was satisfied at being able to do justice to the legendary singer.

Malek bares a striking resemblance to Mercury and seems to have studied his moves to a tee too. He also looks a lot like Mercury in the video. Proposed in 2010, the lead role was originally set aside for Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Dictator) but left after six years as a result of "creative differences".

Mercury passed away in 1991 at the age of 45 due to complications from AIDS; while bassist John Deacon retired from the music industry in 1997, May and Taylor have continued the Queen legacy with live performances, including tours in recent years with American vocalist Adam Lambert.

It ends with 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.
