BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY — TRAILER

Scheduled for release on November 2, Bohemian Rhapsody already looks like a shoe-in come Oscar-nomination season. 

The movie stars Rami Malek in the title role as Freddie Mercury. Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers also star. In spite of all of the musical chairs regarding directors and actors, this looks to be a very entertaining experience.
