Synopsis: The iconic intro of "We Will Rock You," the soaring chorus of "We Are the Champions," the mesmerizing operatics of "Bohemian Rhapsody"...
Who isn't moved to sing along when they hear these anthems? Who can't fail to stamp their feet at such heart-stirring beats? Who can forget that moment the Live Aid concert of 1985 suddenly moved into fifth gear when Freddie Mercury strutted onto the stage and sent the crowd into frenzies of communal singing?
It's been over 25 years since the death of lead singer and flamboyant front Freddie Mercury, yet the music lives on. Freddie redefined and transcended stereotypes, just as Queen's music refuses to be slotted into any traditional genre. Perhaps that's why the band is such a cross-generational, multicultural and global phenomenon.
Now, Emmy®-winner Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) dons the skintight catsuit and grabs that microphone stick to take on the role of the king of pop rock in Bohemian Rhapsody, a footstomping celebration of Queen's music and lead singer Freddie Mercury's extraordinary life.
Release Date: November 1st, 2018

Raw moments in the film provide a looking glass into Freddie's internal struggles with love, loneliness and his own identity.
