 The film Bohemian Rhapsody , which tells the story of the English group Queen, but especially of its singer, Freddie Mercury, is finally available at Videotron!

It is the actor Rami Malek, who noted the immense challenge to slip into the skin of the legendary Mercury, and its performance is breathtaking.

But such a transformation does not take place overnight, and a film as ambitious does not occur easily.

So here are 10 facts unusual and secrets of the shooting of the film Bohemian Rhapsody.

 1. A diet intense

To look like Freddie Mercury, who was in good physical shape, Rami Malek has had to gain muscle.

Then, he was forced to go on a diet called “crash diet” in order to lose weight quickly to interpret Mercury youngest.


 2. The teeth of Freddie

Freddie Mercury was born with 4 teeth in his mouth, which gave him what is called an overbite.

Throughout his life, the singer refused to be operated on, as many producers and agents wanted him to do, for fear it would change his voice.


 3. A set of dentures out of the ordinary

To mimic the look so specific from the mouth of Mercury, Rami Malek has had to wear a denture.

To be comfortable with the false teeth, the actor chose to wear that denture before you even start filming!

The greatest challenge was that of the concert Live Aid , which is recreated in full in the film.

For this scene, each look, the way Freddie’s moves on stage, he holds his microphone every time he slams your hands, or that he wipes his forehead; everything has been copied to perfection!


 6. A character invented

The character that Mike Myers performer in the film, the music producer Ray Foster, has never existed.

However, it could be inspired by the real employee of EMI Records, Roy Featherstone, who was a great fan of Queen.


 7. Closing the loop

In addition, there is a connection special between Mike Myers and the Queen.

In the cult movie Wayne’s World, for which Myers is known for, the actor had insisted that the song in the opening scene of the film to be Bohemian Rhapsody, against the will of the producers.

His character, Ray Foster, made a little nod to this fact when he said to the members of the Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody will never be popular because “this is not the kind of music that teens are going to want to listen to in the car and shaking the head”, a direct reference to Wayne’s World.
