One of the best documentaries about Queen!

In 1970 Queen was formed in London…
Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band called Smile, of which Freddie Mercury was a fan. He encouraged Smile to experiment more with music and joined May and Taylor in 1970 and suggested the name “Queen”.

After a series of bass players, John Deacon was recruited in early 1971 before the band released their eponymous debut album in 1973.

Since then, Queen have released 26 albums and sold over 300 million records worldwide. The popularity of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon is stronger than ever 40 years on.

Their music speaks to all ages and across different generations, while also connecting with cultures around the world.

Queen’s music evolved over time as they developed as a band, so there was/is something new there for everyone.

Their music was ground-breaking and innovative, and the band wrote such distinct, iconic songs, performing them in their own idiosyncratic way, including via their now classic music videos, that they always stood out.

Queen’s legendary live performances, led by Freddie, also added to their universal appeal, not least their show-stealing performance at Live Aid in 1985, which underlined their status as global superstars, particularly in the US.

Mercury’s incredible stage presence and ideas for more elaborate recording techniques are some of the most memorable things about Queen’s success throughout the years, and many artists have admitted how much they have been inspired by Mercury and his influence on the band.

But it was no bed of roses. No pleasure cruise. Queen had their share of kicks in the face, but they came through and this is how they did it, set against the backdrop of brilliant music and stunning live performances from every corner of the globe.

In this film, for the first time, it is the band that tells their story. Featuring brand new interviews with the band and unseen archive footage (including their recently unearthed, first ever TV performance), it is a compelling story told with intelligence, wit, plenty of humor and painful honesty. / Bonus Features:
Additional Videos: new promo videos containing unseen rushes, performances and outtakes.

Though it’s been decades since the original lineup of Queen were writing and performing together, the band remain the most important in music history thanks to their creation of dramatic, anthemic and inspiring songs which never get old no matter how many times you’ve heard them.
