Like the first trailer, this latest look is also set to a collection of the band’s greatest hits, and shows how some of them were written and recorded, including the origins of their classic rock anthem “We Will Rock You.” But while the first trailer also prompted fears that the movie would straight-wash Freddie, this latest look does at least offer a quick hint of his sexual relationship with men, as well as his struggle with and death from AIDS in 1991.
Freddie Mercury was one-of-a-kind, one of the greatest musicians to ever step on stage, and he deserves to have his story told. Hopefully this trailer is a sign the movie will tell it right. Bohemian Rhapsody, also starring Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, and Mike Myers, comes to theaters on November 2.
