BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
Release: November 2, 2018
ABOUT THE FILM

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is the story of how Freddie Mercury and his fellow band members Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon formed Queen - one of the most iconic rock groups of all time. The film follows Queen as they produce hit after hit, topping the charts while constantly evolving their sound. Through disparate songs like Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are the Champions, We Will Rock You and countless others, the band reaches unparalleled success and Freddie becomes one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.

Behind that veil of success, however, Freddie struggles to reconcile his duality. Forever trying to determine where he fits in the world as a Parsi immigrant from Zanzibar coming to terms with a sexuality even he can’t define in a culture bound by stereotypes and expectations. Freddie dares to defy them all but also pays a price. Lured into excess and surrounded by darker influences, Freddie shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. What becomes an attempt to redefine himself as a solo artist, ends in disappointment and further isolation.

Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Brian, Roger and John - his rock’n’roll family - Freddie comes to terms with the realization that the magic of Queen and their success lies in all of them working together, challenging one another. Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid - the biggest concert in history. But fate and past behaviors throw a devastating obstacle at him, one that forces him to confront then accept his own mortality. Pulling himself up from personal strife one more time to overcome the odds, the band puts on 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. On Freddie’s terms, not the rest of the world’s. 


QUOTES
 GRAHAM KING (PRODUCER)

“This film has been 8 years in the making but I truly believe that it’s been worth it, because I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished. The movie is a true celebration of Queen’s music and a tribute to one of the greatest frontmen of all time: Freddie Mercury. Breaking through stereotypes and expectations, Freddie dared to change everything - believing in himself and his music.”

“He and the band reached unparalleled success and Freddie became one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet, cementing a legacy that continues to this very day. Their music is played in sports arenas, countless films and commercials, and is heard reverberating around nearly every local bar and pub around the world. They inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers. And behind the music was a man who simply connected with people in a way only a handful of performers have ever done.” 

 “I’ve been lucky enough in my career to work with some of the greatest actors - Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, just to name a few. But the performance of Rami as Freddie rates up there with some of the best I’ve ever seen.”

 BRIAN MAY (LEAD GUITARIST, QUEEN)
 “I'm thrilled with the way our Freddie film is shaping up. Much more than a documentary of someone's life, it's a piece of pure art, chiselled out of solid rock. It speaks of families and relationships and hopes and dreams, and heartache and disappointment, and ultimately of victory and fulfilment, in a way that everyone can connect to. It hasn't been an easy journey -  but all the most worthwhile journeys are like that! Rami and Lucy and the boys give monumental performances - more than worthy of the originals !!” 

OFFICIAL SYNOPSISBohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who 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, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. 
SYNOPSIS
Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer.  Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie and Issa Rae.

THE BOOK
Author Angie Thomas initially developed the project as a short story for her senior project in Belhaven University’s creative writing program. After graduation, she expanded it into a novel which led to 13 publishing houses bidding for the book. The Hate U Give was published on February 28, 2017 and opened at number one on The New York Times young adult best-seller list. It is Thomas’ debut novel. Critics widely praised the book. In The Globe and Mail, Shannon Ozirny wrote, "Ignore the YA label - this should be the one book everyone reads this year." While Katie Ward Beim-Esche of the Christian Science Monitor wrote, "Believe the hype: The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas’s extraordinary and fearless debut, really is that good. "The book remains in the bestseller list and has won numerous awards including the William C. Morris Award, the Michael L. Printz Award, the Coretta Scott King Award and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.

THE FILM
The film is directed by George Tillman Jr. (Soul Food, Men of Honor, Notorious) from a screenplay by Tina Mabry (Insecure, Queen Sugar, Mississippi Damned) and Audrey Wells (Under the Tuscan Sun). It stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr Carter, with Regina Hall and Russell Hornsby as Starr’s parents Lisa and Maverick. Additional cast members include Anthony Mackie, Issa Rae, Sabrina Carpenter, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, and Common. 

QUOTES
GEORGE TILLMAN, JR (DIRECTOR)

“For me, it all began in January 2016 when I got a call to read an unpublished book by a new author called Angie Thomas. I was finishing another project at the time on a snowy day in Brooklyn and was reluctant to give my attention to it, but something inside told me to take 30 minutes to read it. These 30 minutes changed my life.”

“I vividly remember the opening lines of the novel when the protagonist Starr Carter says: ‘I shouldn’t have come to this house party. I’m not even sure I belong at this party. That’s not on some bougie shit, either. There are just some places where it’s not enough to be me. Either versions of me.’ “

“That statement “it’s not enough to be me” really hit home. As an African-American who grew up in Milwaukee and moved to Los Angeles to pursue filmmaking, I’ve always connected with that feeling of not thinking I’m enough. Struggling with the idea of trying to be two people. I think this is something a lot of individuals, but especially black people and other minorities in America can relate to. That one phrase instantly fostered a strong emotional connection within me, and I knew this was a story I had to tell.”

“This is a story about finding your voice. About family. About identity. I’ve been fueled by immense passion and purpose to bring the incredible story that Angie Thomas has created to the screen so the world can see not only this young woman’s struggle and pain but also the awakening and resilience that every human has.”
