“Bohemian Rhapsody” is an upcoming biographical film that will premiere in theaters on Nov. 2.

The trailer previews the evolution of the British rock-band Queen on their journey to becoming international rockstars. The band is seen performing small gigs in London and selling out arenas worldwide.

Centered around lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, the film will explore Mercury’s sexuality, diagnosis of AIDS and departure from the band.

Directed by Bryan Singer, who is known for his works on “The Usual Suspects” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the movie stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, Lucy Boynton as Mary Austin, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon, Aidan Gillen as John Reid and Mike Myers as Ray Foster.

Malek’s vocals are combined with those of Canadian singer Marc Martel to recreate Mercury’s vocal range.
