When we first saw visual proof of Bohemian Rhapsody, the long in-the-works biopic chronicling the rise and globe-trotting success of the band Queen, the internet lost its mind — namely because actor Rami Malek (of Mr. Robot) looked very much like Freddie Mercury, whom he portrays in the film.
Then, a teaser clip was released for the film, which will come out on November 2. It was also quite interesting, with some critical takes noting that the trailer seemed to omit (or gloss over) Mercury’s eventual health decline and death at the hands of AIDS.
Now, though, a longer, two-and-a-half minute preview has been unveiled, which seems to assuage concerns that the movie wouldn’t cover Mercury’s personal story as it ought to. Watch the full clip below:
In addition to Malek, the film also stars Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
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.
