This looks very good and Rami Malek is surely a good bet for a Best Actor nod. Ben Hardy playing Roger Taylor too *.

Rami Malek is someone I would not have pegged to play Freddie Mercury but it works so well *.*

Is Rami Malek actually going to be singing on the soundtrack at all or will he just be miming to Freddie's vocals throughout? Either way, I can't see this being anywhere near as big as the other musical hits this year.

Don't underestimate the power of Freddie and Queens tbh.

He talked in interviews about singing and recording tracks, so I assume it'll be him on the non-live tracks on the soundtrack, and I wouldn't be surprised if they slightly alter his voice in the studio to make him sound more like Freddie.

I'd imagine the live tracks will be Freddie.

Went to see this tonight! Fantastic film. A rollercoaster of emotions and captivating performances as we're taken on a journey from the band's origins to perhaps their most pinnacle performance at Live Aid in 1985. I trust there was probably some creative licence but everything that was shown felt authentic and true. You saw the highs and the lows and the soundtrack was pitch perfect in supporting the story. Rami Malek as Freddie absolutely nails his flamboyance, passion, humour and rapport. Seeing the birth of the song 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is fascinating and seeing the full 20 minute recreation of the Live Aid performance is just breathtaking and feels like you are there in that moment watching it as it unfolded.

There was an Elton John biopic teased in the adverts which seems like it could be one to watch too!

One problem I had with the movie is that they were in 1980 and Freddie had a mustache and it showed them creating the We Will Rock You song. We Will Rock you came out in 1978 before Freddie got a mustache, so the timing was off on this. Otherwise the rest of the movie was good.

Absolutely enjoyed this movie. The potrayal from Rami as Freddie was spot on! The scene at Live Aid was fantasticly filmed.

Very good film 8/10. The chronology was mucked about a bit in order to fit the dramatic structure, but it was genuinely touching and the cast were amazing. I completely failed to recognise Mike Myers! I left feeling "I can't believe Freddie has been gone for 27 years" when Queen were such a part of my life and pop culture age 16 through to my early 30's, and have become more huge than they were at the time - they were popular, but never cool, except perhaps in 1974/5 when they were sort of part of the tail-end of the Glam Rock/Art Rock period and when I loved them the most.

I really enjoyed the film a whole lot more than I expected to. It does follow the typical template of a band biopic, but it was a whole lot better than that, Malik was fantastic as Freddie, at many points I forgot it was actually an actor playing him, and the casting of the rest of Queen was spot on (my mum actually thought that it really was Brian May playing himself). They did tone down quite a lot of Freddie's more debauch antics to get the 12A rating, and there were some parts of his history that I would of loved for them to put on screen but I understand why they didn't (the two that come to mind were the time that he went to a recording session with Michael Jackson but left because Jackson brought a llama into a studio, and the time that he and Princess Diana went to a gay bar in disguise).

That Mike Myers cameo was brilliant, it wasn't until halfway through the scene that I realised it was him, and I quite liked the cheeky Wayne's World reference. I was also surprised that my older brother didn't know who Kenny Everett was when he was on screen (I've loved Kenny Everett from a young age when I saw a retrospective of him as a child just after his passing; I'm surprised more people of my age aren't familiar with him).

for the one who dont know: Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid and he leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.
