    Always loved Queen's music. So glad to see a movie dedicated to them. You Americans are lucky enough to get the movie two months ahead of Singapore.

    Despite that, I still wouldn't mind sitting through the movie in a theater full of Queen fans. It's like going to a Queen concert, but cheaper.

    I was a bit concerned, given how the early descriptions of the film seemed to suddenly change from 'Freddie Mercury biopic' to 'film about Queen', but that looks decent? Rami Malek certainly looks the part.

    I think I read somewhere they were gonna kill Freddie off halfway through the movie, then show how the other band members dealt with it afterwards. That'll be interesting, since Brian May and Roger Taylor are also producing the film and might want to one-up Freddie there, in a "but Queen wasn't all Freddie!" sort of way --- which is true, but it might come off more defensive than anything. Oh, and there was that whole Bryan Singer thing too.

    I'm still hyped for the movie, is what I'm saying, but I'm really really worried about it too.

    Yeah, I guess. But I feel like Queen only made it so big because of Freddie. Maybe I'm just being superficial. I mean, the only reason I got into Queen as much as I did was because of Freddie's singing.

    Yeah singer going pyshco???? Wtf..

    I probably wont see it in the theater but im sure ill catch it as a rental or netflix. Im guessing thats a recreation of wembley stadium in the trailer? Wasnt the one for the original live aid torn down and rebuilt? So is this a cgi stadium? Or im a totally mixing it up with something else?

    I have the montreal concert on dvd. Damn that some impressive stuff! I can certainly see Queens live reputation is well earned.

    How much did this intertwine with the early genesis/prog rock movement? Ive watched a lot of the genesis docs and read Phil Collins not dead not dead yet memoir. I dont seem to recall pressure or influence from queen on them. Obviously different music styles in the early genesis days but the showmanship of peter gabriel is certainly a crossover.

    Though was peter gabriel still in Genesis when queen was peaking????

    You aren't the only one thinking that. When I think of Queen I always think of Freddie's voice and performances, he has one of my favorite singing voices.

    Peter Gabriel started performing with his elaborate costumes in 1972 during their live shows promoting their Foxtrot album (He never did tell his band members he was going to do it when it happened the first time, so they were really shocked when he went on stage wearing a fox head and his wife's red dress). This was approximately a year before Queen would release their first album.

    Thanks wind adept. So there was some overlap then. Obviously the next revolution in the 70s was the bee gees and the creation of disco. BUt thats another story.
