Bohemian Rhapsody didn’t get amazing reviews from critics, but audiences around the world seem to really enjoy it. The music biopic featuring the life of Freddie Mercury and Queen, has been having a good ol’ time at the global box office.
According to the reports, it has made over $600 million at the box office, which means it’s now the highest-grossing music biopic of all time domestically, internationally and worldwide.
“Nominated for two Golden Globes and two SAG Awards this week, the story of Freddie Mercury and legendary band Queen has now topped previous music biopic domestic record holder Straight Outta Compton. It’s also outperformed Fox’s own The Greatest Showman, a breakout that had extra-long legs from last year’s holiday corridor.”
20th Century Fox has to be feeling pretty good right about now. According to insiders, the studio knew all along the film would perform well overseas, and they were correct. It’s made $433 million globally. Its domestic haul sits at $175.5 million.
