Bio-drama directed by Bryan Singer until Dexter Fletcher took over to complete filming and post-production. The story focuses on the years from the formation of Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek), up to their performance at the Live Aid concert in 1985.
The story traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that was always more like a family and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers, and music lovers to this day.
