See Rami Malek As Freddie Mercury In New Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer

Freddy Mercury biopic 'dodges issue of Aids'

Producer Bryan Fuller Accuses Queen Biopic Of 'HetWashing'

Such is the striking resemblance, and with the band's other popular hits "Another one bites the dust" and "Killer Queen" forming the background score, this teaser sure does crank up the Mercury further this summer.

The are numerous visuals in the trailer of the band, and of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.

Shortly after the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer was released Fuller took to social media to offer his opinion of the footage.

The first trailer released this week faced a backlash from LGBT activists and Producer Bryan Fuller - who took to Twitter to vent his frustration at what was shown in the first sneak-peak of the biopic.

'Anyone else mildly annoyed #BohemianRhapsody trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with a woman but no indication of his love of men?' tweeted the Star Trek: Discovery writer. Fuller went on further to say from a marketing perspective it had been done on objective to focus on Mercury's relationship with a woman instead of a man.

Fuller replied saying, "I disagree".

He added: "I feel what the trailer is doing is queer-erasure". If they were out and proud with his bi-sexuality they would have indicated he was bisexual. Fuller concludes, 'Dear 20th Century Fox. Yes, it was a life-threatening illness, but more specifically it was AIDS. From having gay sex with men. Bohemian Rhapsody promises to be as multi-layered as the song itself, with scenes of delirious fans gasping at the band's larger-than-life image, and that of Mercury's hedonistic lifestyle and off-stage implosions that led to Queen eventually disbanding.
