Queen Rock Montreal Disney+

In November 1981, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon played the last two concerts in their The Game tour at the 18,000seater Montreal Forum. The gigs were recorded for posterity, with the resulting film receiving a remastered DVD release in 2007. Since then it’s appeared on IMAX screens and Blu-ray, and is now making its way onto the streaming service. “I t’s like being on stage with the band because the cameras are very high quality for the time,” claims Taylor. “I’ve never seen anything that makes you feel quite so involved with the performanc­e.” Look out for memorable renditions of such classic songs as We Will Rock You, Killer Queen, Somebody to Love and, of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.

SERIES The Big Cigar Apple TV+

Joshuah Bearman is best known for writing the article on which Oscar-winning film Argo was based; it retold how the CIA used the shooting of a fake sci-fi movie as cover for the rescue of American embassy staff from Tehran. In 2012, he published another story, this time in Playboy magazine, in which politics collided with Hollywood again. His focus was on Black Panther founder Huey Newton’s efforts to flee the US and make it to safety in Cuba, with help from famed producer Bert Schneider. It was an elaborate plot but, as we’re about to discover, not one that went exactly to plan… Andre Holland and Alessandro Nivola play Newton and Schneider respective­ly, while Don Cheadle (who was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in Hotel Rwanda) directs.
