Rami Malek has the right Freddie Mercury vibes in first look at ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
We won’t see Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody until 2018, but boy are we ready. Entertainment Weekly shared an exclusive first image of the Mr. Robot star as Queen’s frontman, and it’s nothing short of glorious.
The photo was released Tuesday, on Mercury’s birthday.
Behold the biceps, the pelvic gyration, the jaw that could cut diamonds. But even beyond that — behold the physicality of Mercury in the 1970s, as a dancer, singer, and all-around performer.
Bohemian Rhapsody is directed by Bryan Singer, who says the film is less of a biopic than an examination of a specific moment in music history (Queen’s performances from 1970 through 1985). The film is expected to premiere Dec. 25, 2018.
