It was great to see Brian May, Roger Taylor and a projection of Freddie Mercury at the recent closing ceremonies of the London Olympics. Now you can follow that up by checking out a classic concert by Queen on the big screen.

Screenvision, in an alliance with More2Screen and Eagle Rock, brings Queen, one of the world’s most iconic British rock bands, to the big screen with the feature presentation of “Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest ’86.” Originally filmed on July 27, 1986, this Queen concert film has been re-mastered for digital cinema in high definition with 5.1 surround sound and features many of the band’s most popular tracks, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “I Want to Break Free” and “We Are the Champions.”

Part of the hugely successful Magic Tour, this concert is significant because it was the last time Queen toured with their late lead singer Freddie Mercury. It was also the largest stadium concert ever staged at the Nepstadion in Budapest, in front of 80,000 ecstatic fans – three years before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

This special performance is introduced with a 25-minute documentary feature including rare footage – some of which has never been seen before – that gives the inside track on events, following the band from just after their historic performance at Live Aid in 1985 through the year leading up to the concert in Budapest. Using archive footage from rehearsals, interviews with the band in studio and on the road during the Magic Tour, this fascinating feature has been specially created for this new cinema release. Fans worldwide can be part of this celebration of Queen’s global appeal as this event is shown in movie theaters across the U.S. in a limited engagement on September 20, 23 and 27, 2012.

“We’re delighted that Queen fans across the world will finally have the chance to relive this amazing moment for the band. We knew a stadium concert in Budapest was ground-breaking, but hadn’t quite anticipated what a historic night it would turn out to be. The concert looks fantastic on the cinema screen in all its digitally re-mastered glory and the documentary does a great job of setting the scene – it really was an extraordinary time in the band’s history.” – Brian May and Roger Taylor  Go to www.queenonscreen.com to find a screening near you.

A new documentary film chronicling the life, career, and even his solo projects of Freddie Mercury titled ‘The Great Pretender,’ will be available from Eagle Rock Entertainment on DVD and Blu-Ray on Sept. 25th. It was created by the same team behind the fantastic ‘Queen: Days of Our Lives’ BBC documentary and was produced and directed by lifelong fan and expert Rhys Thomas.

Rare interviews with Mercury, concerts, video shoots, and personal material from the singer’s own collection are included, along with testimonials from Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor and band manager Jim Beach.

Film highlights include Freddie and Rod Stewart singing their demo of the unreleased song ‘Take Another Piece of My Heart’ and Mercury’s unreleased collaboration with Michael Jackson on ‘There Must Be More to Life Than This.’ Plus, Mercury appears in some of the archived footage with the Royal Ballet in 1979. Footage is also included of Mercury’s 39th ‘Black and White’ birthday party back in 1985 where the singer and his friends celebrated with a cross-dressing theme party to signify his final year before turning 40. Outtakes from the video shoots for ‘I Want to Break Free,’ ‘One Vision,’ ‘Days of Our Lives,’ ‘I Want It All,’ ‘A Kind of Magic,’ ‘Princes of the Universe,’ ‘Living on My Own,’ ‘Born to Love You,’ ‘Great Pretender,’ ‘Made in Heaven,’ and ‘Who Wants to Live Forever’ are also featured.

Coinciding with ‘The Great Pretender” DVD offering will be the ‘Barcelona: Special Edition’ album in which Mercury teamed with Montserrat Caballe for a record that’s been re-recorded with a full 80-piece orchestra and will be issued with the book titled ‘The Great Pretender.’

In more Freddie Mercury news, the Savoy Hotel will host the second annual ‘Freddie for a Day‘ charity event Sept. 3, with proceeds aiding the Mercury Phoenix Trust to fight AIDS worldwide. ‘The Great Pretender’ film will screen three days later (Sept. 6) at BAFTA.
