Following a new trailer landing earlier this week, the BBFC has rated an extended 5-minute preview for Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. As is the norm for such extended looks, we expect it to be exclusive to cinemas and not released online.
It is incredibly likely that, much like the trailer itself, this is hitting cinemas in time to play with screenings of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again; so if you are in the UK seeing the ABBA musical on the big screen this weekend, let us know if you get the new look! It’s currently unknown if this look will also be hitting North American theaters, as soon as we hear more we will update.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie 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. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers, the film is released October 24 in the UK, followed by November 2 in the United States.
