20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

The trailer, which stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, shows Malek wearing some of Mercury’s most iconic stage looks including his white tank top during Queen’s Live Aid performance. It also features a look at the recording of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

“This is when the operatic section comes,” Mercury explains in the recording booth. Queen finds themselves facing opposition with studio execs who say the song “goes on forever; six bloody minutes.”

“I pity your wife if you think six minutes is forever,” Mercury responds.

A song mashup of “Killer Queen,” “We Will Rock You” and the film’s title play throughout the trailer.

The film also stars Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander and Mike Meyers.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” opens on November 2.
