I dare you to sit still through the new “Bohemian Rhapsody” trailer. Odds are you can’t do it.
This trailer embodies the word “teaser” in that we’re getting a lot of good stuff thrown at us with almost no time to process it. The trailer is a wave of songs we adore, perfectly woven among scenes of Mercury’s most iconic looks. The medley crescendos to the title piece and, arguably, the hallmark of Queen’s career, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It’s a delight for the music aficionado and a total fangirl moment for Queen fans.
Rami Malek looks great in the role of Freddie Mercury and the icon’s energy just radiates off of him. Thus far, based on looks alone, it’s a great fit. We get a small tease, here and there, of Mercury’s sense of humor and some of what makes him a legend.
This is only a small taste of what’s to come and Shuffle Online is going to be keeping a close eye on this one!
