It looked like the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, was in a bit of trouble last year, but it seems that the film is moving along swimmingly, and it's set to release this coming November. The first teaser has been released for the film, and it confirms that we'll be getting a full trailer tomorrow.

A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985.

Originally the movie was set to have Bryan Singer direct the film, but after multiple reports of unprofessional behavior on set—not to mention a sexual harassment accusation— Singer was fired and eventually replaced with Eddie the Eagle director Dexter Fletcher.

Rami Malek will be playing the role of legendary frontman Freddie Mercury. Other Queen band members will be played by Gwilym Lee (Brian May), Ben Hardy (Roger Taylor), and Joseph Mazzello (John Deacon). Mike Myers is also listed in the cast, but we still don't know who he's playing.

Interestingly enough, despite the trouble that this movie was having last year, it has actually been pushed forward from its original release, replacing X-Men: Dark Phoenix which will come out in 2020. Hopefully we get a movie that Mercury himself would be proud of.

Bohemian Rhapsody hits theaters Nov. 2.
