Rami Malek as rock icon Freddie Mercury in the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox/New Regency film BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.

Bohemian Rhapsody has been a long time coming, and while there have been numerous ups and downs in its production, it goes without saying that the casting of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury was game-changing for the film.

The official Queen YouTube page released a new video highlighting Malek coming on board for Bohemian Rhapsody and the exhausting work he did to truly capture the essence of the one-of-a-kind frontman.  The most interesting takeaway is the fact that Malek didn’t work with a “choreographer”; he worked with a “movement coach.”  You might be asking yourself, “Is there a difference between the two?” One look at the behind-the-scenes footage below, and yeah…there’s a MASSIVE difference.

And clearly, it was well worth it.

Bohemian Rhapsody opens in the theaters nationwide on November 2.
