Quote: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. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
Queen, being the band I grew up with, has a special place in my heart. I'm looking forward to this. Rami Malek seems to have gotten his mannerisms down to an art, and everything just looks good.

There is a part of me hoping they dub over the actor who plays Freddie when it comes to singing, Freddie had some things that are uncommon for singers going on from how he sings to who the hell knows what else or how it happened.
I am just afraid if they don't dub in Freddy's voice its going to ruin the experience, and well I hate dubs.

Heck most singers stick to a few styles that fit their voice and abilities, Freddie was all over doing a vast array of different styles requiring different vocal abilities.
Also this is what Neil Patrick Harris has to say about Les Miserables as a movie
