“Bohemian Rhapsody” showcases the life and tragic death of wildly-talented lead singer, Freddie Mercury and his journey with British rock band Queen.

Mercury, portrayed by HBO’s “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek, began writing songs for Queen after joining as lead vocalist. Despite Mercury’s investment in each song, they went unnoticed by radio stations and the public alike. Queen, realizing that it had to exceed any achievements made by other great rock bands of the 1970’s, soon began experimenting with layered vocals, bold bass and lyrics that expressed the strangest of stories, as seen in the world-renowned single, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film’s namesake.

The release of the band’s record “Queen II” allowed the band to build a reputation for itself, opening doors to various gigs, interviews and a colossal fanbase which 50 years later, remains unparalleled.

In a recently-released trailer, viewers catch a glimpse of the band’s booming bass, robust vocals, skin-tight pants, ground stomping and unflattering facial hair at a performance at benefit concert Live Aid.

The film was partially directed by Bryan Singer, who until recently, Century Fox wanted nothing to do with due to a sexual assault lawsuit back in 2014. Singer, who is known for producing several “X Men” movies and “Superman Returns,” was fired mid-movie, causing London production to temporarily stop until new director Dexter Fletcher who is known for his work “Eddie the Eagle,” was hired.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” rocks theaters everywhere Nov. 2 and is rated PG-13.
