Sneak Peek at 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Teases the Queen Biopic

Happily, the first trailer for that biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, is here and backed by some of Queen's most iconic songs as it highlights what trailblazers Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen were.

It will tell the story of the beginnings of the band, up until their show-stealing performance at Live Aid in 1985, which can be seen in all its glory in the trailer. Sasha Baron Cohen had been down to take on the role, but left the project because of "creative differences" back in 2013.

Don't get too excited just yet because it is a painfully short teaser but it does give us a look into Rami Malek playing Freddie Mercury.

After listening to "six bloody minutes" of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", an unhappy record executive turns his nose up at the over-the-top tune that would become the British rock band's most famous song.

Bohemian Rhapsody - which also stars Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, Joseph Mazzello as bassist John Deacon, and Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor - opens on November 2.

The project later ran into further difficulties when its director, Bryan Singer, was sacked after reportedly taking too much time off for "health concerns".

We're delighted to see that Bohemian Rhapsody kicks off with that moment.

Amusing enough, the teaser for Bohemian Rhapsody does not feature the song from which the biopic took its name. Of course, I didn't know how ideal this inspired piece of casting was until the first official trailer dropped today over on Queen's YouTube page.

British director Dexter Fletcher took over Bohemian Rhapsody after gay director Bryan Singer was sacked amid on set arguments and Singer's leaving the set to resolve a family health emergency. Also starring are Lucy Boynton, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers. Queen, who is most famous for their hits "Killer Queen", "Somebody to Love", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "We Are the Champions", and "Bohemian Rhapsody", among many others, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
