Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer Has Rami Malek Rocking Out as Freddie Mercury

Bohemian Rhapsody has been in development for what seems like forever, so today is a very special day with the first trailer from the biopic hitting the internet. Queen has been teasing the trailer ever since it made its debut at CinemaCon a few weeks ago and yesterday, the band unveiled the first poster of the biopic, which featured Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. The poster was then followed with a 10-second teaser of Bohemian Rhapsody that had Queen fans begging for more. Thankfully, the teaser was only released 24 hours before the actual release of the trailer.

The first trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody shows off more of Rami Malek’s brilliant Freddie Mercury than we’ve seen thus far. The previous leaked footage from the set is absolutely nothing when compared to the official trailer. It really is remarkable how much Malek was able to channel the look and energy of one of the most iconic figures in rock and roll history. Rami Malek has nailed even the smallest mannerisms of Freddie Mercury, which has been evident even in the still pictures that have been released for Bohemian Rhapsody.

When preparing for his role in Bohemian Rhapsody, Rami Malek admits that he listened to a lot of Queen and watched a bunch of video footage of performances of Freddie Mercury. In addition to being one of the best performers in rock history, Mercury also had an unbelievable 4-octave range voice, which Malek attempted to replicate as much as possible. However, in the end, it will be a blend of Freddie Mercury’s voice, Rami Malek’s, and a sound-a-like performer to do the job of one Mercury. Malek previously had this to say.

“We’re going to use Freddie as much as possible and use myself as much as possible. I’m in Abbey Road (Studios) right now, if that should say anything to you. I’m not working on my acting.”

In addition to Rami Malek’s Freddy Mercury, Bohemian Rhapsody also stars EastEnders actor Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor, Midsomer Murders‘ Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May, and Joseph Mazzello (best known as Tim Murphy from Jurassic Park) as bass player John Deacon. The casting is pretty spot on with all of the actors looking a lot like their real-life counterparts. Bohemian Rhapsody is currently in post-production, going over all of the final details before the biopic hits theaters.

Bohemian Rhapsody will hit theaters on November 2nd and the first footage for the biopic looks extremely positive. This should come as a relief for Queen fans who have been waiting years to see anything from the movie. Queen is and has been one of the biggest bands in the world for decades, so to say that excitement for Bohemian Rhapsody is high would be a severe understatement. For now, you can check out Rami Malek’s excellent portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody below, thanks to 21st Century Fox.

New Goosebumps 2 Trailer Has Deadly Gummy Bears Out for Delicious Revenge

New Goosebumps 2 Trailer Has Deadly Gummy Bears Out for Delicious Revenge

Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween is bringing Gummy Bears into the children’s horror genre and they’re ready to wreak some havoc this Halloween. The loveable candy bears have been shown in the promotional material before, but they are highlighted in the latest trailer for the upcoming sequel, as they viciously attack Jeremy Ray Taylor and Caleel Harris. As it turns out, these Gummy Bears don’t appreciate it when someone eats half of their family in one handful, making them combine to create giant terrifyingly cute monsters that are ready to exact their revenge.

Along with the new trailer for Goosebumps 2, the box office estimations are in as well. The lack of Jack Black is looking like it will have a pretty dramatic effect on opening weekend, and no amount of man-eating Gummy Bears is going to change that. The film opens on October 12th, just one week after Venom and is currently tracking at around a $14 million debut. If accurate, the sequel will be taking in nearly $10 million less than its predecessor.

There is still speculation that Jack Black will show up for at least a cameo in Goosebumps 2, but if he is, now would be a good time to at least tease that he’ll be back. The first film was a box office success thanks to the power of R.L. Stine’s source material and the star power of Black. With the absence of Black, some have already criticized the sequel for looking generic, while others will argue that it looks even scarier than the first installment. In the end, it doesn’t look like Goosebumps 2 will come close to the success of the first installment.

While it looks like Jack Black will not be in Goosebumps 2, he is starring in another children’s horror movie, The House With A Clock in Its Walls, which hits theaters today. The movie is partnered up with a special 3D screening of Michael Jackson’s Thriller at select IMAX theaters in an effort to boost ticket sales. The House With A Clock in Its Walls seems to have a bit of an edge over the Goosebumps sequel and it will be interesting to see how the two films end up at the box office in the coming weeks.

Gummy Bears coming to life and turning into giant vicious creatures is a pretty good marketing angle, but it looks like Goosebumps 2 is going to need a lot more than evil candy treats to score at the box office. With that being said, the sequel does actually look better than the original from a visual effects standpoint, and it looks like it’s taking everything from the Halloween store to bring it to life, which looks like a lot of fun. While we wait for Goosebumps 2 to hit theaters, you can watch the latest trailer below, thanks to the Sony Pictures Entertainment YouTube channel.

Blumhouse’s Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare

Blumhouse’s Thriller Trailer Turns a Childhood Prank Into a Nightmare

 

Blumhouse is going all in on its winning barebones production formula with the cheap-looking Thriller, which makes it extra scary by default. Its loose production values add a certain aura to this haunting tale that you would never get with a big budget horror project. Oh, and we should mention, since it’s returning to theaters today, this has nothing to do with Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which is playing in 3D alongside The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

Thriller is the latest low budget creeper from Blumhouse, who are gearing up to release the much more high profile Halloween sequel in theaters next month. Dallas Jackson directs Thriller, which tells of a childhood prank gone horribly wrong. You get to see that prank happen here, and the outcome will definitely turn your stomach. The dollar store production aesthetic adds a sense of realism that comes across like a snuff film.

Thriller tells the tale of a shy young man named Chauncey Page. He winds up in juvenile hall after he accidentally kills a young woman during a cruel prank being played on him. Once released from jail, he returns home to seek his revenge.

Jason Woods is playing Chauncey as a new kind of slasher stalker, who is yearning to get the blood of his tormentors all over his soft hands. His group of tormentors are now all in high school, getting ready for the big Homecoming dance. Dressed in nothing but a hoodie and a menacing stare, Chauncey goes through the group, picking them off one by one with glee and abandon. He’s a bad dude. And he’s down right terrifying.

Jason Woods is joined in this fine ensemble by Mykelti Williamson, perhaps best known as Bubba in Forrest Gump. Also along for this wicked ride are The Wu Tang Clan’s RZA (Ghost Dog), Jessica Allain, (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Luke Tennie (Shock and Awe), Tequan Richmond (Ray), Paige Hurd (A Girl Like Grace), Chelsea Rendon (Bright), Mitchell Edwards (The First Purge), Pepi Sonuga (Ash Vs. Evil Dead), Maestro Harrell (Ali) and Michael Ocampo (Shooter).

Thriller doesn’t have a set release date just yet. It could even get a simultaneous theatrical and VOD release before Halloween, if Blumhouse plays its cards right. The movie is set to premiere this weekend at the LA Film Festival. You can check out the first spooky trailer from Deadline Youtube. We also have a look at Chauney in his menacing hood as part of the poster art.

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War

Aquaman is now three months away from opening in theaters and Warner Bros. and DC Films are starting to ramp up the promotional campaign. Jason Momoa returns to his Arthur Curry role for the first standalone film for the aquatic superhero, who often ends up at the butt of the joke. Momoa and director James Wan are hoping to take Curry and bring a cool edge that has not been present in the comic books or previous animated shows. While it’s too early to tell if they succeeded on their “make Aquaman cool mission,” they certainly packed a lot of underwater action into the international trailer.

The first trailer for Aquaman was shown to an enthusiastic audience at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer was released online simultaneously and DC fans were generally pretty happy with what they saw. However, the lucky attendees were treated to some more footage, which has gone on to reach almost mythical status, like last year’s Infinity War footage that was shown off at the D23 Expo and Comic-Con. The recently released Japanese trailer is pretty similar to the North American version, but it adds some more battle action, which is certainly welcome.

Aquaman will be the first DC film released after the disastrous Justice League, so it has a lot riding on its shoulders. Early Aquaman reactions to the movie have been positive, with more than a few people comparing it to a Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One movie. While the early reactions weren’t overwhelmingly positive, hopes are still high that Jason Momoa and James Wan have crafted something on par with Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, which has been the greatest success out of the DCEU thus far.

Talks of an Aquaman movie started as far back as 2004, but several plans fell through over the years. It wasn’t until 2014 when Warner Bros. and DC Films started actively putting the film into development with Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad brought on to write two completely different scripts. In the end, Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, Beall, Geoff Johns, and James Wan had a hand in crafting the story and tweaking the screenplay. Wan was brought in to direct the film in 2015 while Jason Momoa took on the lead role in 2014.

Aquaman swims into theaters on December 21st after getting pushed back a few times. The movie was originally going to come out in July, but was later pushed back to October, and finally to December. It’s too early to tell what the movie will bring in at the box office, but if the reviews are positive, Aquaman could end up making Warner Bros. and DC Films a ton of cash. But, if the reviews are negative, they could sink the box office for Arthur Curry’s first standalone film. You can watch the international version of the Aquaman trailer below, provided by the Japanese Warner Bros. YouTube channel.
