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

Joseph Mazzello used 5 different wigs throughout the shoot in addition to having to have his own hair permed, an experience he hadn't anticipated would be quite so 'permanent.' See more »
There is a scene in the film where Another One Bites The Dust is rehearsed and performed. There is transparent imagery of Queen albums in LP format. The albums appear in the order through their appearance. 'A Day At The Races (1976)', 'News Of The World (1977)', & 'Greatest Hits (1981)'. The albums 'Jazz (1978)', 'The Game (1980)', & 'Flash Gordon (1980)' are missing. 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.
