The 97-second sneak peek dropped Tuesday morning, opening with Malek in an iconic white cape, then cutting to the look-alike in a series of on-stage snippets as beats from Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Killer Queen" play throughout, leading to the unforgettable, lively 1985 Wembley Stadium crowd.
