If you haven't been to the movies lately, you may have missed it.
This movie is going to be PHENOMENAL.
Chronicling the years leading up to Queen's appearance at the Live Aid concert in 1985, Bohemian Rhapsody stars Rami Malek (Need For Speed, Night at the Museum) as Freddie Mercury.
Here's the storyline:
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. - Written by Twentieth Century Fox
It's not due out until October, but the amount of excitement I am feeling cannot be contained. Malek seems like the best possible fit for Mercury outside the man himself - especially considering that the part was almost played by comedic actor Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Bruno).
