The first trailer for the upcoming biopic about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury "Bohemian Rhapsody" has its first trailer.

Playing Mercury is "Mr. Robot" Star Rami Malek, who earned buzz for the uncanny resemblance between him and the late rock legend. 20th Century Fox shared a description of the film along with the trailer, writing:

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who 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, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that was always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" found itself in the news after its original director Bryan Singer (who helms the "X-Men" movies) was fired after reports surfaced he was not showing up to set and having issues with Malek. It was also reported Malek complained on behalf of the cast about Singer's unprofessionalism. He was later replaced by Dexter Fletcher ("Eddie the Eagle").

"Bohemian Rhapsody" hits theaters on November 2 and also stars Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers.
