Queen is one of those bands that you can't help but know. Even if you're not a huge fan — even if you're from a whole other generation — you know at least some of the music. We won't go through the list. You don't need us to.

And this one's been a long time coming, with its fair share of drama in the lead-up, but on Nov. 2 we're finally going to see Rami Malek (from USA's Mr. Robot) as Freddie Mercury.

From the synopsis on the film's site:

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. Facing a life-threatening illness, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

If you're at all a fan of rock 'n' roll, you're gonna want to see this one.
