After the band of iconic musicians forms, we see as Queen starts getting gigs in little clubs.
To write articles, books or for a matter to make a movie on the British superstar's life can be considered a courageous attempt. As such, you'd think that a biopic around Queen and specifically Mercury himself would have been produced.
It's been a long feat to make even the trailer.
Robot lead actor Rami Malek got the honor of playing one of the most celebrated and beautifully-voiced singers of all time, Freddie Mercury. I am not crying, you are! His distinctive fashion style has been covered well in the trailer with highlights of those silver sequin suits and leather pants and boots. The music, the act, the costumes, the stage presence, the recordings - we are mesmerised by each frame.
The movie follows a timeline of the band's journey leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid concert back in 1985. It is set to hit the theatres on October 24in the United Kingdom and November 2 in the US.
The makers have subtly incorparated Mercury's later revelation of his sexuality and don't miss the part where his love interest Mary Austin appears in the crowd.
Stan Lee files billion-dollar lawsuit against POW! Entertainment
Lee is seeking an injunction declaring the agreement invalid and unenforceable and damages in excess of $1 billion. His name is described as his most important and valued possession in the suit.
While there was a fleeting shot of Freddie with a man (presumed to be Paul Prenter), Bryan said: "The shot of him in close proximity with a man is mere frames, while the relationship with the woman is emphasized".
He also took notice with the studio's official synopsis, which describes Mercury's AIDS as a "life-threatening illness". But there's something missing we feel.
Malek looks absolutely unbelievable as Mercury.
In an interview with a USA radio station, Baron Cohen said the band wanted the death of Mercury to take place in the middle of the film, and for the second half of the film to follow the afterlife of the band.
