Millennials and our Titas of Manila woke up to good news last Wednesday (May 16, 2018) after the movie teasers involving Queen went viral on social media overnight. It’s quite impossible to miss it since it’s all over our Facebook Newsfeed, Twitter’s Trends List, Google Most-Searched Topics, and so on! We’ve confirmed that there is, indeed, an upcoming movie to celebrate this iconic band and their music before 2018 ends.
In case you’re too young to know what Queen is, they’re a British rock band behind classic hits such as We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions, Another One Bites the Dust, and Bohemian Rhapsody – which was chosen to be the title of the upcoming movie in October. The band is composed of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon.
Break free and let loose with the music of one of the most iconic bands of all time with 20th Century Fox’s first trailer of Bohemian Rhapsody:
We’re expecting 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.
Bohemian Rhapsody movie traces the meteoric rise of the band through their timeless 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 were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
“This film has been 8 years in the making but I truly believe that it’s been worth it, because I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished. The movie is a true celebration of Queen’s music and a tribute to one of the greatest frontmen of all time: Freddie Mercury. Breaking through stereotypes and expectations, Freddie dared to change everything – believing in himself and his music,” says producer Graham King.
Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek, Aidan Gillen, and Lucy Boynton will open in Philippine cinemas nationwide on October 31, 2018 (previously announced as November). Don’t forget to follow Manila Millennial on Facebook and Instagram for instant updates on new trailers and movie reviews.
