A new trailer for the upcoming Queen film "Bohemian Rhapsody" focuses on Freddie Mercury and Queen's rise to fame. In one brief scene, we see Mercury share an intimate moment with another man in his dressing room. However, for a movie dedicated to telling the real story of a mythical performer, there were major parts of his life notably absent from the first look at the film, including his sexual orientation and his struggle with AIDS.

The trailer also features a number of stage performances, looks at Mercury's love life and hints at the singer's death in 1991. As with the teaser, this trailer is heavy on the Queen music, and if nothing else will remind you how hard that band still rocks, even today. You tell him, Freddie. Bohemian Rhapsody began production with X-Men director Bryan Singer, who was sacked after causing production delays and fighting with Malek on set. Although developed for many years with Sacha Baron Cohen in mind to play the Queen frontman, things finally got off the ground with Malek and now a full-length trailer has landed. "In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that was always more like a family and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers, and music lovers to this day".

Starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers, the film traces the rise of the band's success while also tackling the band members' personal demons.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is due out in United States cinemas on November 2, preceded by a United Kingdom release on October 24.
