Bohemian Rhapsody Premiere

Did you know ...?

  1. Bryan Singer was fired by 20th Century Fox on December 5, 2017 for reportedly being at odds with his star, Rami Malek. Singer threw an object at the actor when Malek complained to the studio about the director's absences.
  2. Sacha Baron Cohen was the original choice to play Freddie Mercury. He left the project due to creative differences with the band's guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. The deal with Baron Cohen fell apart after May voiced upset after finding that the project would only be a biopic of Freddie Mercury and not the rest of Queen. May felt that it should focus on the other members and the aftermath of Mercury's death. He also voiced his negative opinion of the casting choice of Baron Cohen, whom he felt was too much of a comedic actor who wouldn't do Mercury justice in drama.
  3. According to BBC, film production was rough. The film's producers and lead star, Rami Malek, had grown tired of Bryan Singer's erratic behavior, which saw him routinely showing up late to set or disappearing altogether. In 2017, after Thanksgiving break, Singer disappeared from filming for three days straight, at which point cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel had to step in and direct during Singer's non-showings. Reports claimed that Singer left because of a family matter. A couple of days after this report, 20th Century Fox fired Singer from the film due to his erratic behavior on and off set and clashes with production personnel. Matters would get much worse for Singer as the next day, 20th Century Fox terminated his Bad Hat Harry production deal with the studio. Fox began canvassing for a new director to finish up production with two weeks of filming still remaining, all of post-production, and with potential reshoots. The new director, Dexter Fletcher, commenced production after New Year's of 2018.
  4. In the trailer, all four members of Queen gather around a microphone to record the vocals for "Bohemian Rhapsody". In real life, bassist John Deacon never sang on Queen recordings, however Deacon is seen lip-syncing with the rest of the band in the original "Bohemian Rhapsody" music video.

  11. When Rami Malek first met with Queen at Abbey Road Studios he was running late. He was racing up the stairs and on the way, he came across an autographed picture of Queen.

  12. After the first official trailer for the film was released on May 15th, 2018, heavy backlash was received due to the "lack of portrayal of Mercury's sexuality". However, a scene is shown in the trailer featuring an intimate moment between Freddie and another man.
