    I think the correct phrasing should be "impossible to replace me".

    As much as Queen have tried, there is no replacement for Freddie Mercury that would ever be anything more than a second rate imitation. And I say that regardless of the actual talent of any replacement. For example, George Michael is an incredibly talented performer and did a great job in the performances he did with Queen and I know Queen have toured extensively with Adam Lambert, but Freddie Mercury is irreplaceable.

    That's actually pretty good. I just watched the live aid set not long ago and they seem to have really captured the performances.

    That...doesn't look terrible. In fact, I think this could be a pretty good movie.

    Bryan Fuller Slams “Bohemian” Hetwashing

    The first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” about iconic UK band Queen and its lead singer Freddie Mercury, was released yesterday and the response has been mostly positive.

    But not all have been pleased with it, even though it’s just a teaser trailer. “Hannibal” and “American Gods” creator Bryan Fuller took to Twitter to voice his displeasure, mainly for the trailers noted lack of any hint of homosexuality or Mercury’s dealing with AIDS.

    Fuller says: “Anyone else mildly annoyed that the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ trailer features gay/bi superstar Freddie Mercury flirting with and twirling with a woman but no indication of his love of men?”. The trailer does linger on several shots between Mercury and his lifelong female friend Mary but only features one split second shot which barely hints at it.

    Fuller does go on to make a good point of how the trailer (and studio movies in general) blatantly prioritizes one sexuality (heterosexuality) over the other (homosexuality) for characters dubbed ‘bisexual’ and then goes on to slam the film’s official synopsis which makes no mention of Mercury’s condition beyond having a “life-threatening illness”.

    Fuller says: “Dear 20th Century Fox: Yes, it was a life-threatening illness, but more specifically it was AIDS. From having gay sex with men. Do better.” For the most part, Fuller has come under fire for prematurely reacting to a very limited piece of marketing as opposed to the final film itself.

    Nevertheless, his comments and the trailer have raised the conversation again about the film’s content and just how much the movie will whitewash and soften the truth. Sacha Baron Cohen, who was originally to star as Mercury, famously left the project over it being both micromanaged and toning down the darker and more honest aspects of the story.

    “Bohemian Rhapsody” opens in cinemas on November 2nd.

    Singer Gets “Bohemian” Directing Credit


    singer-gets-bohemian-directing-credit.jpg


    Filmmaker Bryan Singer is still set to get a directing credit on the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” at 20th Century Fox reports THR.

    Singer was fired in December after unexplained absences from set according to the studio, while Singer argued that the studio ‘refused to allow him time off to care for an ill parent’ and denied any wrongdoing.

    Singer was replaced by Dexter Fletcher (“Eddie the Eagle”) to finish filming the movie. ‘Bohemian’ is described as a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) but will barely touch upon both his struggle with AIDS and his open sexuality which were a key part of the man’s life.

    “Bohemian Rhapsody” will open in theaters on November 2nd.
