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

John Deacon (Joseph Mazzello) playing bass at the first Queen concert in 1970, but in reality he was the fourth bassist they tried and he didn't enter the picture until 1971. They do show them playing "Keep Yourself Alive" at the first show, which was indeed an extremely early original tune in their repertoire. 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 »

Tell him thanks for the birthday cake. And tell him you're an epic shag.
Freddie, he can read lips!

Wow. What a truly inspiring film.
Made me feel that being eccentric and different is ok as long as you are you!
The film brought so many emotions - laughter, sadness, joy - very heart warming.
At times I forgot I wasn't actually watching the guys from Queen - they all looked so like them - especially May and Mercury.
I thought Rami rocked the role. Massive respect to this guy!
Would happily pay to go back in and watch it again! My film of 2018!!!!
