Rami Malek of “Mr. Robot” fame transforms into Freddy Mercury in upcoming Queen biopic, set for release this fall. After the film’s rocky production, the film’s trailer is finally here. The film’s trailer recently screened at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last month.

The trailer’s intro capitalizes on Queen’s iconic songs, including a mashup of “Another One Bites The Dust” and “Killer Queen,” which then led to the film’s titular song.

“This is when the operatic section comes,” Malek as Mercury said at the studio during a recording session of the ground-breaking song.

It closed with “We Will Rock You” playing in the background along with the band’s legendary performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before the British singer died.

The film co-stars Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Lucy Boynton (last year’s Murder on the Orient Express) among others. Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything) wrote the script.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” is scheduled to be released in the United States by 20th Century Fox on November 2, 2018.
