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.Written by

Partway through filming, director Bryan Singer was fired and replaced by Dexter Fletcher. Even though Fletcher directed 16 days of filming and oversaw post-production, the Director's Guild of America (DGA) deemed the sole credit for directing the movie belonged to Singer. See more »
Freddie Mercury has lovely deep brown eyes. Rami Malek has blue/green eyes and they make no effort to correct them during the film including close ups of his face. See more »
I wanna give the audience something that they can perform.
[Brian stomps his foot twice and claps, he and other band members follow along to the beat of We Will Rock You]
What's the lyric?

The 20th Century Fox fanfare is performed with an electric guitar (composed by Queen guitarist Brian May himself) and ends with a guitar riff. See more »
I just saw the world premiere and oh boy let me tell you about it:
This movie might not be a masterpiece but my heart is filled with such happiness and joy after watching it that I think it's going to burst (sorry for the cheesiness), Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon are so exquisitely portrayed I sometimes forgot it wasn't them, the performances were so on point and so powerful you could feel the energy burst through the screen. ¿Have you seen the famous car scene in Wayne's world? well, now imagine a full room doing the same, people couldn't help but sing along (lets be honest, it's impossible not too).
I laughed, cried, sang and wished I could have seen Queen live, this band will live forever.
