Hannibal's Bryan Fuller tweeted, "Anyone else mildly annoyed that the "Bohemian Rhapsody" trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with and twirling with a woman but no indication of his love of men?" Singer was one of the many powerful Hollywood men accused of sexual assault, after the scandals surrounding Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey broke the floodgates.
It feels like we've been waiting forever for Bohemian Rhapsody, the Queen biopic, to emerge into the world. The movie has come a long way tackling problems with the cast and direction.
The film has been in the works since at least 2010, when it was announced that Sacha Baron Cohen was to play Mercury; however, Baron Cohen left the project in 2013 citing "creative differences" with Mercury's former bandmates, with guitarist Brian May later calling Baron Cohen "an a**e".More news: Oil steady near $71 as sanctions and protests stoke risk

Actor Rami Malek plays Freddy Mercury in the uipcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. Directed by Dexter Fletcher, who directed "lock, stock and two Smoking barrels". The casting has been done beautifully and the costumes and makeup are absolutely spot on. Snippets partly reveal what the film will tackle, including the recording of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and skepticism from record executives regarding it being released as a single. Bohemian Rhapsody will portray the rise of the band, as well as the personal demons frontman Mercury faced in the wake of their success. Failing to achieve similar solo stardom, Mercury reunites with Queen just in time for Live Aid. With so many classics to their name, the British rock band took over the world and ruled the music scene '70s onwards.
Judging by the trailer alone, the movie looks like a big hit already. Well, don't worry, the trailer promises to recreate the live performance that went down the history as one of the greatest rock concerts when the movie releases on November 4.
