The first full trailer for the new Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" has landed online.

In the film, Rami Malek plays the bold and expressive frontman of the 1970s/'80s rock band Queen. Mercury died in 1991 at the age of 45.

In the trailer, we see some iconic moments in Mercury's tenure with the band -- from his arrival to the creation of some of the group's most well-known songs, like "We Will Rock You" and the title track.

While the trailer opens by saying this is "his story," the film appears to give some decent screen time to the band's other members, Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy), Brian May (Gwilym Lee), and John Deacon (Joseph Mazzello).

In one scene, as Hardy's Taylor is about to throw a coffee pot, Malek's Mercury responds, "Roger, there's only room in this band for one hysterical queen."

The movie hasn't been without its troubles. After original director Brian Singer went missing from the set for three days, he was fired, being replaced with Dexter Fletcher. However 20th Century Fox said Singer would retain full directing credit, and the trailer confirms that.

"Bohemian Rhapsody," set for release Nov. 2, also stars Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, and Mike Myers.
