The film, titled Bohemian Rhapsody after the Queen classic, has been highly anticipated since its inception in 2010, but has also made plenty of headlines for the production problems it's suffered.

A 90-second trailer for the biopic of Freddie Mercury from the legendary group Queen has finally been uploaded on YouTube, and leading the movie as the protagonist is none other than Rami Malek himself.

Bohemian Rhapsody was written by Anthony McCarten who was nominated for the 2015 Oscar Best Writing award for The Theory of Everything.

Malek bares a striking resemblance to Mercury and seems to have studied his moves to a tee too. I would have liked to have seen the Sacha Baron Cohen version but what is in this trailer is impressive and engaging.

In an interview with a U.S. radio station, Baron Cohen said the band wanted the death of Mercury to take place in the middle of the film, and for the second half of the film to follow the afterlife of the band.

Bryan Singer, famous for X-Men, was the director of the movie but he got fired after he disappeared suddenly from the movie set. Fans can check out Bohemian Rhapsody from November 1.

The band, fronted by iconic vocalist Freddie Mercury, rose to fame in the 80s before Mercury's death in 1991 from a complication of AIDS.
