Bohemian Rhapsody will be out (out Dec. 25, 2018) and chronicles Queen from 1970, when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor, until the band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985. The film ends six years before the singer died of complications from AIDS.

Malek admitted that he’s currently recording, in London’s Abbey Road studios, some of Freddie’s epic songs – but the film makers are planning to use original recordings and re-recorded works.
