Rejoice all Freddie Mercury fans! We're getting a biopic about one of the most iconic bands of all time, Queen. Bohemian Rhapsody is coming out later this year, and it's going to be impossible to miss.
In 2016, it was announced that Rami Malek will portray the legendary Freddie Mercury.
37-year-old actor is currently best-known for his role in TV series Mr. Robot. He already won a Critics Choice Award and an Emmy Award, so we have no doubt about his acting chops.
Now, when we've seen Malek transform into the singer, we better understand how he landed this role.
Can you spot the difference?
The trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody is here, and you better sit down, as Malek might as well be a reincarnation of Freddie Mercury.
Major props to the makeup and styling department. We can see little to no difference between Rami and Freddie.
The movie explores Queen's rise to fame and Mercury himself in his most flamboyant state.
In some photos, you can actually confuse Rami Malek for Mercury, it's uncanny.
Check out the trailer to see Rami in all his glory.
Based off the trailer alone, Rami Malek is already receiving early Oscar buzz, as many fans predict he might land an Academy Award for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury.
