  • The first poster for Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has dropped with the trailer arriving later today

Magnifico! The trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody has just been released and if the teaser is any indication, Queen's stellar rise to the top will be told just the way Freddie Mercury would have wanted it.

The film has been in the pipeline since about 2010, but now we can finally get a first look at Mr Robot's Remi Malik in the role of Freddie Mercury, the larger-than-life lead singer of the band. Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen was originally billed to play Mercury, but he left the project after "creative differences" with Mercury's former bandmates who are producing the project and allowing access to their back catalogue of iconic songs. In fact, at a point, the studio fired Bryan Singer and replaced him with Dexter Fletcher (Eddie The Eagle).

Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we're taking a sneak peek at the brand new trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody. The pair are credited as co-directors on the film's IMDb page, but there is no mention of the directors on the film's trailer or publicity materials thus far.

This is a project that has been in the works for years, with a number of different actors and filmmakers attached, so it's a miracle the film is even finished. Ethnically speaking, Malek (who was born to Egyptian parents) makes a fitting choice to play Mercury since Mercury was of Persian and Indian descent.

The movie chronicles Queen from their inception in 1970, when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor, through the band's performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before Mercury's death.

The 1993 Magic entered the lottery with the 11th-best odds and won, taking Chris Webber before flipping him for Penny Hardaway. The team will have an 8.4 percent chance of receiving the seventh pick and a 0.4 percent chance of receiving the eighth pick.

The brief teaser comes ahead of the film's eventual release on November 2, after it was pushed forward from an original Christmas Day release.

Speaking of "Bohemian Rhapsody", 20th Century Fox has launched a contest inviting fans to record their finest rendition of the iconic song on a mobile device, for the chance to have their voices featured in the film.
