Recommended Posts

Not sure if there is a thread about this musical biopic yet. The first trailer was released today.

It looks better than I expected (Note that I didn't say good). I'm not sure I'm sold on the Freddie portrayal yet, but Brian May looks spot on. If I had my eyes closed, I'd have thought it was May himself speaking.

I've never been passionate about Queen, but this looks like it could be a laugh - roll on November.

Bet @Len Cnut has already pre-booked his ticket.

For a chap who lisps you'd think he'd love a bit of Mercury.

Rami Malek sounds nothing like Freddie when he's speaking. It sounds as if Brian has recorded lines and has the actor miming them, though I could be wrong.

I'm looking forward to it, just hoping the portrayal is a lot more accurate than what it looks from the snippets.

Sorry but I don't know. I just don't want yet another typical biopic. Is it based on a book writen by a band member or journalist?

Thats what I thought. Based on what I've read previously I expected it to be bad so I was reasonably surprised. I might go watch it when it's released.

Looks better than I expected. I'll keep my mindset on the positive side, for now.

No but Brian and Roger have been involved in production.

The attention to detail is impressive. Yeah Malek isn’t going to sound or look 100% but from what we see he at least has the mannerisms and charisma down. Brian May is spot on - I wasn’t expecting that.

Malek doesn't look like Freddie, he looks more like Mick in some shots. But I agree he nailed the way Freddie moved. The guy playing Brian is uncanny.

Can't wait to see what Bumblefoot does with the May reshoots...

That's happening, right?

I was expecting Axl reshoots in Sail Away Sweet Sister :P

This, i think it is Brian voice. If not, the actor is spot on.

I was surprised how close the actors look to the band members. If you look at pictures of them side by side they look nothing alike, but if you look at them in costume they look pretty damn good.

Queen fans seem divided on Malek in the teaser, but they seem to all agree that Lee's May was near perfect. 

 

I think Malek will capture the essence of Freddie. From what I've seen he got the mannerisms and the moves down. Looks and voice won't matter in the end.

Also, that guy in the trailer who complains about the length of Bohemian Rhapsody and gets a quip from Freddie, is that Mike Myers?

Yeah of course he’s not going to look exactly like Freddie but the swagger and personality are almost more important in this case, so acting chops will prevail over simply looking the part. He seems to have the charisma nailed.
