Take a look at this upcoming Paramount Pictures release below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s pretty much my standard about saying only a brief sentence if anything when it comes to teaser trailers since there is usually a full one only a month or two later. With that being said, back in July, the world saw the first Official Trailer for a film called “Bohemian Rhapsody” and as someone who really enjoyed a whole lot of Queen classics, this one intrigued me. Comparing the two clips, the upcoming Elton John film looks to have a few dreamlike surreal sequences while the Freddie biopic sticks to the real world. It will be interesting to see which film does the best when the complete box office is tallied. Speaking frankly, I lean more towards Queen classics than Elton ones despite also being a big fan of his. I’ll definitely see both of these films in the theater when they are released and very likely on Blu-ray once they come out on that medium. If you haven’t yet seen any of the “Bohemian Rhapsody” content, just click HERE to be on point about that one. Now, what do you think of this quick taste of “Rocketman”? Was it enough to make you curious? Chime in down below.
