On Instagram, Queen guitarist Brian May has shared some unseen photos from Freddie Mercury’s biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

He wrote:

“I promised I’d share the new stereos from behind the scenes of the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ film shoot which are in the second edition of my book – “QUEEN in 3-D”. It didn’t seem fair on those of you who already bought the first edition.

You guys have the advantage of an original OWL rather than the LITE OWL in the new edition, and you have a handsome slip-case. But you don’t have the new stereos. Well, here they come ! If you want to see them in higher quality, they’ll be on Bri’s Soapbox too (soon) – at www.brianmay.com.

He continued:

“Stereos from the new edition of Queen in 3-D – Number 2 ! Rami preparing for the first take on the first day of the first shoot ! Plunging in at the deep end, the team attacked the climax of the film first ! Astonishing ! **** Notice the boys are playing, not to Wembley Stadium packed with 100,000 fans, but to a small section of the eventual audience – volunteer extras all in 1980s period costume – and green screens.

The special effects team performed a miracle recreating the original scene using these techniques and custom CGI. I wonder if they will ever get suitable recognition for this work. This default view is for parallel 3-D viewing. Swipe for cross-eyed version. And if you’re baffled by this whole 3-D thing – please visit LondonStereo.com.”
