Below is the synopsis of "Bohemian Rhapsody," per IMDB.

A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985.

Variety's Jem Aswad wrote Rami Malek is a dazzling choice to star in the music biopic.

Channelling Freddie Mercury is no mean feat, but a 90-second trailer for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the forthcoming biopic of the singer and Queen, the legendary British group he fronted, suggests that “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek is one of the best possible candidates for the job.

Below is the synopsis of "A Star is Born," per IMDB

A movie star helps a young singer and actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

Little Monsters and critics alike argue that Lady Gaga's Oscar campaign is beginning now. Vanity Fair's Yohana Desta wrote: 

From the looks of it, this movie follows the same plot points as past iterations of A Star Is Born, but has been reimagined for a more rustic setting. Cooper, who also directed the movie, seems like he’s got pretty capable singing chops. His voice is steady and folksy—though he does get completely blown out of the water once Gaga starts singing. To be fair, she blows most people out of the water. As far as debut movie roles go, this one seems perfect for the Grammy-winning singer, allowing her to follow in the footsteps of legendary predecessors Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. A Star Is Born hits theaters on Oct. 5, 2018; Gaga’s Oscar campaign begins now.
