Considering the film ends at Live Aid, that's unlikely to happen.

Have you ever seen anything as funny as that bloke sitting back and saying that this is where the opera section comes in?

The bloke playing Freddie looks like Wacko Jacko with buck teeth.

Still - as a comedy - it might just work in the way that David Brent: Life On The Road did. people will be laughing in their popcorn.

Has that been confirmed? Either way, you see my point. It's an opportunity to see those sorts of moments - both the good times and the bad.

A Queen biopic is an impossible task ... too many nuances. Given the challenge they had, I'm pleasantly surprised with the trailer. No one looks like Freddie and no one moves like him. Its a nightmare to portray that in a movie. In this respect, it seems Rami did a nice job in capturing some of the nuances and humor that most of the time the general public missed. I'm looking forward to this. I think we will end up learning more about the band and for any Queen fan, that's a must. Can't wait.

I like Rami's rock and roll posing and the different Freddie looks showcased in the trailer. Might need to get used to his speaking voice, though.

On the other hand, Gwilym as Brian looked and sounded awesome. He said only 6 words or so but nailed his voice tone and delivery on that take.

It's a good trailer. Hopefully the movie will be as good or better. Sometimes shitty movies get great results. Not saying this will be the case but it happens.

Yes Brain looked very impressive. Unfortunately Roger looks like a young Rick Parfitt

Anyone notice the release date of the 24th October? Only my bloody birthday!

Personally, I think it looks great. The guy doing Brian had the voice spot on. Can we please not be so critical of this until its release? This could be the start of a very interesting new Queen era if it is successful.

I think it looks alright (and I didn't expect that either).

Surely the real story here is that Fred's favourite singer, Paul Rodgers, ended up replacing Fred as the lead singer of Queen. If the screenplay extended beyond Live Aid they could've included Rodgers and the film could've then ended on a happy, upbeat note. They could have had Chuck Norris play Rodgers.

The one who plays Brian has Brian's voice. Almost scary. I thought it was a pretty good trailer.

>Then the film could've included an upbeat, happy Hollywood ending

Disney has clearly missed a trick here - the climax of the movie could have had Fred flying back down through space to join his favourite singer on stage for a triumphant Wembley return. The curly-haired on bringing out Ellis for a huge battle of the singers and BM declaring his undying love for her. Kerry wins to tick all of the gender equality boxes.

I was pleasantly surprised by the trailer and I'm looking forward to see the movie. While I don't expect to see a documentary, I just hope there won't be too many "John also singing back vocals" type of mistakes in the movie.

I was wondering the same thing. Since when does John sing on a Queen album?

They probably included John doing backing vocals because the general public doesn't know he didn't actually sing on the records. They've probably seen him doing backing vocals on music videos and live releases. It's just easier for the public Joe to see John singing so they don't have to start wondering in the middle of the movie why one of the guys isn't singing. Also there probably isn't that much material of John in the movie and of course from the point of artistic licence it's better to put John there with the rest of the guys.

I wonder if Under Pressure with Bowie will be part of the movie.
