    in some of those shots, the actor's teeth look a little too unnatural and kinda cartoony, but whatever... i hope this is good!

    Be excellent to each other!

    I hope I enjoy this, but I just can't get over how perfect Sacha Baron Cohen would have been in this role. I don't doubt Rami can pull it off, though. Will definitely see it when it comes out.
     
  4. Rami looks fucking incredible.

    I think this is the catapult that gets Rami to A-list status. But I could also see this movie flopping in America.

    I realllllly hope this is good. Rami looks great! I found the music mashup a little distracting.

    So hyped for this. I don't know much about Rami Malek, but I'm definitely looking forward to checking his other work out. I don't know who the actor is that's portraying Brian May, but he absolutely nails his speech pattern & timber. I thought it was an overdub of Brian's actual voice.

    I have heard mixed things about what people expect from this movie. I don’t know enough about it to really have an opinion on it, but i’m curious what other people here think?

    There’s this whole thread that I’ve seen a lot of:

    It's basically going to depend on what sort of biopic it is.

    There have been a lot of rumours about Brian May and Roger Taylor pulling strings behind the scene to make the film less of a Freddie Mercury biopic and more of a Queen one - rumours that Freddie dies halfway through and Brian, Roger and John have to cope in the aftermath of his death. This is supposedly why Baron Cohen left, and the Singer stuff did not help.

    I have a gut feeling that this is going to go down in history more for its controversy than anything else, unfortunately. Getting a real Stonewall vibe so far.

    To my understanding, it’s about the band’s formation, how Freddie’s persona and love of excess made them legendary, how they almost broke up then reunited for LiveAid. There will probably also be references in there to his relationship with Mary Austin and his bisexuality as well.

    As far as the AIDS crisis goes, I don’t see why the movie needs to discuss it as a global issue. The band likely wanted the movie to be about Freddie and their music, and they probably thought Freddie would agree with that. I dunno. It would be cool of them to reference it some way, but I guess we’ll have to see how it turns out.
