Twentieth Century Fox has just released a new trailer of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody.
Directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men), the film tells the story of the rock band Queen as well as its lead singer Freddie Mercury.

Instead of commenting it, we will simply let you check it on your own:

The film will hit the movie theaters nationwide on November 2, 2018.

Intriguing. I like the photography.

Indeed, I would have big hopes for this. But I am so used to be negatively surprised. Many biopics are actually completely missing the point, by focusing too much on making everything perfect and exactly as it was.
That's why I loved Amadeus by Milos Forman, it may not tell the actual perfect story. But it is a beautiful work of art on its own. It has a theme and goes fully at it. A beautiful based on reality fairy-tale.
At the end of the film, you root and care deeply about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, even know it may be only a version of him.

Also, I remember the movie The Doors, by Oliver Stone. While I think the film is much better than most reviews depict it, it still fails to really propose a human version of Jim Morrison.

In the end, biopics is really a topic on its own. I would have so much to say. I guess we'll have the opportunity to talk when the movie opens.

I loved this movie, but then at a point !!!! We observe the birth of the most beautiful songs, the actors are hypers endearing, and this concert in the end... My God !!!!

Oh really? I also saw that it got a Golden Globe yesterday. Now you really motivated me to see it. But it's no longer in cinemas in my city. I've got to wait until March 4 (release on DVD/Bluray/VOD).
I'll definitely write a review after that!

Yes, the movie and the actor who plays Freddie have each won an award and it's deserved. Brian May and Roger Taylor were present at the ceremony. The film takes some liberties with reality, but overall the film is great

Very interesting. I am so used to biopics that only focus on the myth that you usually end up seeing the end credits rolling and you have not even truly cared or met that person on the screen. I felt a bit like this when watching The Doors, from Oliver Stone, depicting a kind of fantasy-like Jim Morrison. Or Steve Jobs from Danny Boyle, which I really did not like, as we saw just once facet of the character.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to watch Bohemian Rhapsody. And I already know in advance that my girlfriend will love it and will keep singing during the entire film. Actually... come to think of it, maybe I should watch it alone.

Well, I'm afraid she really wants to sing, because Queen's music is very important during the scenes or in the background. And this music is sublime. If not, I found that Freddie was being shown on the screen as it was, we have a rather honest portrait of him, his original personality, ambiguous, his phenomenal talent, his life a little dissolute

The movie was out on streaming platforms and DVD yesterday and we watched it right away with my girlfriend. I had fun watching it – my girlfriend kept singing the entire time.
But I did not like the film. Exactly as I expected, it totally fails to tell us who was Freddy Mercury, it shows the story very well. Like Titanic, everything is perfect and neat and exactly as it was. The guitars of the Live Aid concert are properly placed and all.
But I have not seen Freddy Mercury. We don’t see him facing death, which is such an essential and important part of his life. Is it more interesting to spend 10 minutes with a cliché of a music producer? I don’t think so.
So, I’m probalby too-much of a difficult audience, but yeah, I did not like Bohemian Rhapsody (the film).
