Bohemian Rhapsody, written by award-winning New Zealand author Anthony McCarten (Darkest Hour, The Theory of Everything) and directed by Tom Hooper and Dexter Fletcher, stars Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) as the late Freddy Mercury, who died in 1991 as a result of AIDS.

20th Century Fox and Regency Entertainment released the first major promotional trailer for the upcoming film, Bohemian Rhapsody, and it's a masterful display of pitch-perfect editing set to the unforgettably iconic tunes to one of the most transcendent rock bands of the 20th century.

Director Bryan Singer was sacked from the film late previous year over his "unexpected availability", two weeks before principal photography was completed. I would have liked to have seen the Sacha Baron Cohen version but what is in this trailer is impressive and engaging.

Then, another disruption. Its director at the time Bryan Singer (X-Men), was sacked for, what he claims, looking after ill parents. 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. The other actors who will play a key role in the flick include- Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy and Lucy Boynton.
