Check out Rami Malek as music god Freddie Mercury

Amazingly it's taken decades for a fully-fledged Freddie Mercury biopic to reach the big screen.

The troubled life and times of the iconic Queen frontman is enough to fill several movies, and director Bryan Singer is now bravely tackling Mercury's complex history in Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Usual Suspects and X-Men filmmaker directs Mr Robot star Rami Malek as the late, lamented music god in a movie that is being overseen by former bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor. (Sacha Baron Cohen was initially set to star but departed over creative disagreements.)

The film traces the musician's life, from the moment he formed Queen in 1970 to the feted 1985 Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium, six years prior to his AIDS-related death. And the first image of Malek rocking out has been released – check it out and feel the nostalgia.
