Trailer for Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody dazzles

One thing we've probably already conceded about the new Queen bio-pic Bohemian Rhapsody: It's either going to be majestic or catastrophic. Well, now at least we have the first trailer to view and over-analyze.

The film stars Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) as frontman Freddie Mercury and follows the band's path to stardom from formation to that epic performance at Live Aid in 1985.

Production of Bohemian Rhapsody has been a well-documented disaster since its inception back in 2010 with cast changes and other hurdles constantly thrown in the path. But having the Emmy Award-winning Malek in the lead role gives this effort a much-needed boost. And from what we can see in this short trailer, he definitely has transformed into Freddie.

Let's see what we make of it all when Bohemian Rhapsody is released on Nov. 2.
