See Rami Malek and his co-stars in the latest images from the Bohemian Rhapsody film.
New photos have been released from the set of upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, which is set for release on 2 November 2018.
The first image shared by 20th Century Fox sees Rami Malek, who stars as the late Freddie Mercury, and his co-stars re-creating their famous Live Aid gig.

The second post sees Malek as Mercury backstage alongside Gwilym Lee, who depicts a young Brian May.
Last September Entertainment Weekly first revealed the Mr. Robot star in the guise of Freddie Mercury, and the resemblance was remarkable.
