Bohemian Rhapsody trailer: Rami Malek embodies iconic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury

After listening to "six bloody minutes" of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," an unhappy record executive turns his nose up at the over-the-top tune that would become the British rock band's most famous song. 

"It goes on forever," he says in the first teaser trailer for 20th Century Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody.

Enter Mercury, played in the film by Rami Malek, who quips back with all the wit and cheek one would expect from the legendary frontman: "I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever."

The footage carries on to highlight Malek's Mercury, proving that the actor best known for his role as monotone computer hacker Elliot Alderson in Mr. Robot embodies the larger-than-life singer-songwriter with ease. From the rock star hair to the stage presence to the voice to the smile, Malek's take on Mercury appears to be right on pitch. 

Here's the official synopsis for Bohemian Rhapsody: "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."

Alongside Malek as Mercury in the flick are the fellow members of Queen – Joe Mazzello as John Deacon, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, and Gwimlym Lee as Brian May — Lucy Boynton as Mercury's lifelong friend and lover Mary Austin, Aiden Gillen as Queen manager John Reid, Tom Hollander as manager Jim Beach (who linked up with the band in 1978), Aaron McCusker as Mercury's boyfriend Jim Hutton, and Allen Leech as Paul Prenter. Mike Myers also stars in an undisclosed role.

Following original director Bryan Singer's firing, filmmaker Dexter Fletcher took over to complete the biopic, which will take the stage on November 2. Until then, watch the full teaser trailer above and take a look at the perfectly purple first film poster below.
