Rami Malek Responds to Queen Biopic Film Critics + Trailer

Actor Rami Malek, who portrays Freddie Mercury in the upcoming Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” has responded to critics who believe that the movie ignores Freddie Mercury’s sexuality.

In an interview with Attitude magazine, Malek stated, “It’s a shame that people are making remarks after a minute teaser where you just wanna see the music. It’s difficult. First, let me say that I don’t think the film shies away from his sexuality or his all-consuming disease, which is obviously AIDS. I don’t know how you could avoid any of that, or if anyone would ever want to. It’s a bit absurd that anyone’s judging this from a minute trailer.”

Bohemian Rhapsody will have a world premiere at Wembley Arena in London and will then release in the U.S. on November 2.
