Bohemian Rhapsody — Featurette: 'Becoming Freddie'


added: Wed, Oct 3rd '18

Discover how Rami Malek won the coveted role of Freddie Mercury, and how he then managed to physically morph himself into the legendary rock star in a newly-released featurette for the long-awaited, much-anticipated Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody."

The Bryan Singer-directed film, which seemingly features an Oscar-worthy lead performance from the Emmy-winning "Mr. Robot" star, is chronicling the meteoric rise of the 1970s British rock band, Queen, primarily focusing on Freddie's journey from being a young, gifted singer to becoming one of the greatest frontmen in rock history.

Co-starring Lucy Boynton, Aiden Gillen, and Mike Myers, while Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, and Ben Hardy play the other band members of Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is opening everywhere on November 2nd.

Bohemian Rhapsody is 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.

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, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. 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.
