'Bohemian Rhapsody': New teaser shows how Queen created the iconic 'We Will Rock You' song
The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid
Rami Malek is showing off his incredible talents one clip at a time! A new teaser from the upcoming movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody' has been released, which shows Rami Malek, who plays Freddie Mercury in the movie, singing 'We Will Rock You' and it will give you chills.
In the newly released video clip, Gwilym Lee, who plays the role of Brian May in the movie, is seen urging his bandmates to do a simple stomp routine, before telling Malek, "I wanna give the audience a song they can perform."
Next, the video sees the entire group adding a clap to the iconic beat and repeating it when Lee tells his mates, "Imagine... thousands of people doing this in unison." Malek responds with "What's the lyric?", but then, we all know the answer to that!
The video then merges into the band, in their full glory, and in the background, playing is the song we all can't help but, clap, stomp and shout along to - 'We Will Rock You'. And if you were guessing who's actually singing the first line, it's Malek himself crooning the iconic lyrics.
'Bohemian Rhapsody' has reportedly been in the pipeline since 2010, and the movie will celebrate the music of Queen, rather than focusing too much on the personal life of its lead singer. The title song, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' spent 14 weeks at number one after being released and has become the third highest selling single in the UK.
The film, which stars Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers, is slated to trace the rise of the band's success while also tackling the band members' personal demons.
