Trailer for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is finally here and we can barely contain our excitement
The film which is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen's front-man Freddie Mercury will hit the screens on November 2
"The only thing more extraordinary than their music is their story," says the tagline of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
On Tuesday, 20th Century Fox dropped the first trailer for the movie which stars Mr Robot’s Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the band’s exuberant lead singer who died in 1991.
The official synopsis describes the film as a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.
After a bunch of photos made us collectively gasp over Malek's resemblance to the Queen front-man Freddie Mercury, the trailers offers a glimpse of the actor embodying one of the greatest singers of all time.

If the trailer is anything to go by, the widely anticipated biopic of the iconic rocker promises to be everything we hoped for.
Featuring everything from shaggy hair to the bohemian fashion that the band and their fans rocked, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' seems to have brought the Queen era back to life with great attention to detail.
Malek also seem to have captured the essence of Mercury beautifully, especially his quirky sense of humor, quick wit and his devil-may-care attitude.
A line from the trailer that particularly stands out has Malek's Mercury retorting to a record producer's apparent shock over the length of one of Queen's most famous songs 'Bohemnian Rhapsody.'
"It goes on forever. Six bloody minutes," says the producer, to which Mercury responds with, "I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever."
From what we know of the rocker, this retort is definitely something he would have said to someone who did not respect his artistic choices.
Going by the response the trailer has garnered on Twitter, the fans of the band loved the trailer and many are now waiting for the film with newfound enthusiasm.
