Watch the Trailer for Queen Biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

The first trailer for the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has been released, and you can watch it above.

The film—which is set to hit theaters November 2—stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, and tells the story of the band from its formation to its legendary set at London's Wembley Arena for the Live Aid in 1985.

Ben Hardy (Roger Taylor), Gwilym Lee (Brian May) and Joseph Mazzello (John Deacon) also star in the film, which was stuck in developmental hell for years, and was originally supposed to feature Sasha Baron Cohen as Mercury, before he pulled out of the film in 2013.

You can also take a look at its poster below.

Elsewhere, his album reviews and essays have appeared in Louder and Unrecorded. Though open to music of all kinds, his greatest love has always been indie, and everything that falls under its massive umbrella. To that end, you can find him on Twitter crowing about whatever great new guitar band you need to drop everything to hear right now.
