Watch Rami Malek perform as Freddie Mercury at Live Aid

By now, most Queen fans know that a Freddie Mercury biopic is in the works with actor Rami Malek portraying the legendary frontman. The film - tentatively called Bohemian Rhapsody - is set for a 2018 release. We finally just got our first video teaser of Malek as Mercury, performing the title song at Live Aid in 1985. It's chilling. 

The movie reportedly chronicles the band's years leading up to that Live Aid performance, which revitalized Queen's career. By the way, the surviving members of the band are serving as executive producers. You can see Brian May off to the side of the stage in this Instagram pic
