This Movie Is About.
A biographical musical drama film directed by Bryan Singer was produced by Graham King and Queen manager Jim Beach. The film tells the story of the life of Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the British rock musical band Queen, from the formation of the band up to their 1985 Live Aid performance at the original Wembley Stadium. The supporting cast includes Allen Leech, Gwilym Lee, Joe Mazzello and Tom Hollander. Brian May and Roger Taylor were consultants on the film. A British-American venture, the film was produced by Regency Enterprises, GK Films and Queen Films, with 20th Century Fox serving as distributor. After he left the project, it took several years for the project to get back on track. Singer served as director through most of principal photography, which began in London in September, but was fired in December due to frequent absences and clashing with the cast and crew. Singer retained sole director credit as per Directors Guild of America guidelines, but Dexter Fletcher was hired to complete the film, and he received an executive producer credit. The film was released in the United Kingdom on October 24th and in the United States on November 2nd. The film received mixed reviews, but it was praised for its musical sequence and performance, but it was criticized for its portrayal of Mercury's sexuality and the lives of the other band members. There are a number of historical inaccuracies in the film. It became a major box office success, grossing over $904 million worldwide on a production budget of about $50 million, becoming the sixth-highest-grossing film of the year worldwide, and setting the all-time box office records for the biopic and drama genres. A leading four wins at the 91st Academy Awards for Best actor (Malek), Best film editing, Best sound editing and Best sound mixing, and it was also nominated for Best Picture, were all received by the film. The film was nominated for the Producers Guild of America Award for Best Theatrical Motion Picture and was also nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best British Film.
