The First Look At The New Queen Movie Will Rock You

- Page 1


After years of waiting for the movie about Freddie Mercury to actually get made, we finally have our first peek into how it will look!

Originally, Sasha Baron Cohen was supposed to be playing the iconic singer, but after creative differences over the direction of the film he left the project.

We were all very excited when the new cast was announced, with Rami Malek leading the group as Freddie Mercury, Gwilyn Lee as Brian May, Joe Mazzello as Roger Taylor, and John Deacon as Ben Hardy.

The new cast announcement came with a notice on the website that suggested filming would be "starting very, very soon" and turns out they weren't lying! The cast has finally assembled and filming has begun, revealing our very first peek at the look they are going for.

Malek is up for the challenge of playing the legendary character. When speaking about his first hair and makeup tests he said, “When you’re able to open your eyes and see a different person staring back at you in the mirror, it’s a very affirming moment.”

The film will chronicle the band's entire career, from their beginning in the 70s until the Live Aid performance in 1985 - six years before Mercury's death.

But will the actor be able to look like Freddie Mercury?

But even though Willy Wonka kind of frightened us, we still loved his goofy nature and his outlandish attitude. Wilder had many hit movies, but it's

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended.

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat. They also seemed to have choreography to go with it, and we knew how to dance to them all. We definitely had our priorities straight. For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive.
