Watch Rami Malek Perform as Freddie Mercury at Live Aid From Upcoming Queen Movie

The first video of actor Rami Malek as late Queen singer Freddie Mercury from the upcoming biopic has surfaced.

The minute-and-a-half fan-shot clip from the set of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie captures a pivotal moment for the band: their comeback set at Live Aid in 1985. The video also includes Joseph Mazzello as bassist John Deacon, Gwilym Lee as guitarist Brian May and Ben Hardy as drummer Roger Taylor.

The clip, which includes a backing track of the song “Bohemian Rhapsody,” shows the film’s stars running onto the Wembley Stadium stage, where Malek — as Mercury sporting a sleeveless white T-shirt, faded jeans and that mustache — sits at the piano to sing the song’s opening lines.

You can watch the clip above.

The first official photo of Mr. Robot star Malek as Mercury came out a couple weeks ago, not long after the starring cast was announced.

After a few false starts over the past few years — including a fallout with Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, who was at one time lined up to play Mercury onscreen — it looks like Bohemian Rhapsody is finally getting underway. In addition to the casting of the band members, the movie recently added Lucy Boynton as Mercury’s longtime companion Mary Austin and is considering Mike Myers, who has his own history with the 1975 Queen hit that gives the movie its title, for a role.

Bohemian Rhapsody, which is being directed by Bryan Singer from a script by Justin Haythe, is scheduled to arrive in theaters on Dec. 25, 2018.
