In the video, Brian May (played by Gwilym Lee) is seen encouraging his bandmates to do simple stomp rhythm before telling Freddie Mercury (played by Malek): "I wanna give the audience a song they can perform."

The group then add in a clap alongside that iconic beat and May says: "Imagine... thousands of people doing this in unison."

Mercury comes back with: "What's the lyric?" - but, surely, we all know the answer to that.

It then merges into the band, in their full glory, playing the song we all can't help but, clap, stomp and shout along to, 'We Will Rock You'.

The hotly-anticipated film has been in the pipeline since 2010 and will celebrate the music of Queen rather than focusing too much on the personal life of its larger than life lead singer.

During his career Mercury defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet, before he passed away in 1991 form AIDS.

The film, which stars Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers, will trace the rise of the band's success while also tackling the band members' personal demons.

In the film's official synopsis it says: "The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music."

Queen formed in London back in 1970 and went on to become one of the biggest selling acts of all time - there was only The Beatles who have had more top 10 hits in the UK.

The title song, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' spent 14 weeks at number one after being released and has become the third highest selling single in the UK.

It places just behind Elton John's 'Something About The Way You Look Tonight/Candle in the Wind' - released in the wake of Princess Diana's death, and 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' - which Mercury can definitely claim as he featured on it as well.

The film is set for release on 24 October, in the UK, with a slightly later US release on 2 November.
