Watch Rami Malek play Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody trailer

The first trailer for Fox's upcoming Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody has come online-and it is pretty great.

Bohemian Rhapsody may have had a little trouble previous year with ex-director Bryan Singer.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.

The band, fronted by iconic vocalist Freddie Mercury, rose to fame in the 80s before Mercury's death in 1991 from a complication of AIDS.

"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".

Malek looks absolutely fantastic as Mercury. He also looks a lot like Mercury in the video. The Emmy victor is known for the lead of the psychological thriller TV series Mr. Robot which achieved a wide commercial success.

And yeah I know that it's not an action or sci-fi flick, but sometimes Hollywood stops diddling kids, tingling male taints, and putting aside their penchant for planting Quaaludes in some starlet cuties to actually make some worthwhile movies, and I suspect Bohemian Rhapsody might be one of them.

Director Bryan Singer was sacked from the film late previous year over his "unexpected availability", two weeks before principal photography was completed. We'd like a movie that Mercury could be proud of if he was alive today.

Bohemian Rhapsody isn't set to arrive in cinemas until Friday November 2, but this trailer is bound to have you putting Queen on repeat in anticipation.
