After a torturous, years-long development process, the teaser for the Queen biopic—starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury—has arrived.

 

It was an uphill battle, but it’s finally here: after years of hemming and hawing, false starts, casting swaps, and a damning directing fiasco, the trailer for the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has emerged online. The film stars Rami Malek (and a set of heroic fake teeth) as late lead singer Freddie Mercury, and though the trailer clocks in at just under two minutes, it still manages to cram in several Queen hits—from “Another One Bites the Dust” to “We Will Rock You,” to the title track, because hey, we all know why we’re here.

Malek makes for a pretty convincing Mercury dupe once he’s in all the right costumes and wigs, bopping around as the energetic frontman. We also get a brief glimpse at a nearly unrecognizable Mike Myers as a bewigged record executive of sorts, who warns Mercury that “Bohemian Rhapsody” is too long. “It goes on forever! It’s six bloody minutes!” he gripes—a fun wink at the actor’s own historywith the song.

It is a miracle that the biopic exists at all, really. It’s been in the works since 2010, and was originally supposed to star Sacha Baron Cohen as the lead singer. However, after the actor clashed with Queen lead guitarist Brian May, he exited the project, which then languished in development hell for years. Malek, who became a star thanks to the breakout success of Mr. Robot in 2015, was cast last July, and the project was finally put on the fast track, with director Bryan Singer at the helm.
