Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody can fit with just about anything and make it work, and most recently the classic song was used as the musical accompaniment for DC and Warner Bros. Suicide Squad trailer.
As a warmup to the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Youtube creator Darth Blender decided to mash up the popular tune with Star Wars, and in a surprise to no one, it still works. With some solid editing throughout, the tune gives the epic preceding a more grounded feel, and the mellow beginning to the song does remove some of the drama from the death star's planetary destruction.
The credit goes to the Darth Blender team, which consists of Producer Felipe Haurelhuk, Eduardo Calvet (Screenplay), Christiani Buffoni (Editor), Tony Pereira (Sound Designer), Rubens Macedo (Location), Marcio Sal (CG & VFX), and Camila Oka (Subtitles & Social Media).
You can see more of their work on their official Youtube page here.
After Suicide Squad releases on August 5th, I would be interested to see a mashup trailer between the two films, especially once there is more footage out on the internet. With Bohemian Rhapsody backing it up, that could be quite epic.
