Another Good Movie Trailer

Good movie trailers are few and far between. The trailer for the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, is one of those trailers. I keep watching this one over and over again. It’s really got me interested in the movie which, frustratingly, comes out on November):

The trailer has done a great job of piquing my interest in Queen‘s music. I’ve never been a crazy big fan of Queen or anything, but I’ve always liked some of their songs, and now I’m listening to them while on the computer or in the car.

There’s always been something intriguing about Freddie Mercury as well. His real-life persona was so different from his flamboyant, onstage act. He had a super-human singing voice and was, without question, one of the greatest pop singers of all time.

Rami Malek stars as Freddie Mercury in the upcoming movie. He’s pretty good in the show Mr. Robot, and from the trailer it seems like he’ll give a great performance in the movie.

A previous attempt to make the movie with Sacha Baron Cohen as the star failed a number of years ago due to creative differences. (Note: the movie that was eventually completed has apparently been changed from what Cohen describes in the linked interview quote, which is fortunate. Cohen was absolutely correct with his criticism there).

Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the few films this year that I want to actually see in the theater. I saw the trailer in the theater preceding both Solo and Deadpool 2, and I have a feeling that a great sound system will be needed to do that movie justice.
