Very nice.

Hopefully, the issues with the director(s) won't damage the final product.

It's too bad they couldn't (or refused to) come up with a more interesting film title than the obvious cash-in of a song title, but that's just a minor quibble. It was probably inevitable. So, too, is the song's re-re-release as a single (one wonders how high it will chart this time?).

I'm pleased to see May (along with Taylor) serving as music producer for the film. Also, it's great that it wraps up with Live Aid in 1985, rather than going all tear-jerker to 1991. And let's face it - aside from Mercury's long and slow demise, everything interesting and musically compelling about the band was over by that iconic moment, anyway.

Thanks for posting. I can’t wait to see this movie, there is no one like Freddy and I read the movie did a good job of portraying his story. Rami does look a lot like him, and seems to have captured Freddy.

The Miracle has some good tunes on it.

Has anyone besides me watched the trailer a ridiculous amount of times?

It's well done, especially the sound editing. So. Many. Great. Songs! This reminds me of the 2015 documentary on Amy Winehouse - so much (almost all) was new to me about her life, career, everything (and I do realize Bohemian Rhapsody is not a documentary). That's pretty much where I stand with Freddie Mercury - this will be new information for me.

Check your PBS listings. A couple months ago few weeks back they aired a "new" lost documentary filmed around the recording of and subsequent US tour for News of the World. Really good.

Looking forward to it. I hope the film can do justice in the story of Freddie and Queen. That mans voice and stage presence along with his talented bandmates was one of a kind. Can't wait to see it!

I hope so too. But I'll be honest: I'm not too optimistic, for two reasons:

One, Bryan Fuller's involvement.

Two, biopics about musicians are hard to do well. WALK THE LINE was good, and COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER is a classic. But I SAW THE LIGHT was major disappointing. Oliver Stone's movie about THE DOORS was sub-meh.
