Bohemian Rhapsody -- 4K UHD/BD -- 2/12/19



Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray Bryan Singer's film Bohemian Rhapsody (2018), starring Rami Malek, Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, and Allen Leech. The two releases will be available for purchase on February 12.

Synopsis: Nominated for two Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture - Drama and Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama (Rami Malek), and two SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast Motion Picture and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role (Malek), Bohemian Rhapsody has captured the hearts of fans globally.

Bohemian Rhapsody is an enthralling celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Malek), who defied stereotypes and convention to become one of history's most beloved entertainers. Following Queen's meteoric rise, their revolutionary sound and Freddie's solo career, the film also chronicles the band's reunion, and one of the greatest performances in rock history.

For the first time, fans can experience a truly one-of-a-kind music movie event with the complete "Live Aid" Movie Performance featuring two never-before-seen songs ("Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "We Will Rock You) packed into a 22-minute collective experience recreating the original event. In addition, on Blu-ray, fans will get a look behind the making of the film including interviews with Queen, the cast and creative team.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
  • The Complete Live Aid Movie Performance Not Seen in Theaters (featured in 4K Ultra HD HDR on the 4K Blu-ray Disc)
  • Rami Malek: Becoming Freddie
  • The Look and Sound of Queen
  • Recreating Live Aid

Yeah, just saw. It was good. It wasn’t great. Very good. Malek embodied Mercury and I love him and Queen, so I will get for it all...

What do you mean? It’s just the full sequence recreated with the cut songs.

Rami will be playing guitar on Crazy Little Thing Called Love just like Freddie did at the real Live Aid.

Shit, I totally misunderstood that. My bad. I re-read it and now get it's a longer shot sequence from the movie with extra songs.
Shows I shouldn't have quickly glanced at it.

I think it looks cool assuming it's going to be embossed. Gold and purple seem to fit the style for the movie

I'll take the 20 bucks plus tax from Amazon over the 30 plus tax for that steelbook. And I buy a lot of steelbooks.

Got mine yesterday. The front is a thing of beauty. The back is meh, with just a tiny Queen logo barely visible on the gold colored back.

SB is not embossed and the Target version destroys it in terms of quality and wow factor.

Really? I saw one in store yesterday and it did nothing for me. Maybe it looks nice opened up but it cettainly had zero "Wow factor" sitting on the shelf. Looked almost like all the regular ones.

Considering it will be facing spine out in your collection, I look for a better overall presentation. I think the SB looks as ugly as it can be. The digibook is wonderfully put together.

I pre-ordered it when it was $20. Got free shipping at the time. When I applied a $10 GC to my order last week. It took away the free shipping & charged
me almost $9 for shipping. I just ended up cancelling the order. The hell with calling Amazon.

It would have been nice if they included all of the performances uncut in the bonus features but there is probably close to 90 minutes of extras which is good.
