It debuted just five weeks ago in theaters, but "Bohemian Rhapsody" remains a phenomenon of popularity and box office.
The Queen's music and the interpretation of Rami Malek as Freedie Mercury have won old and new fans and now this celebration has become the most profitable musical biopic ever.
The $ 375.1 million of international box office receipts already gave him that title, but meanwhile the $ 164.4 million raised in the US finally allowed him to evict "Straight Outta Compton," the 2015 film about rap group N.W.A ..
Earlier, they had won popular titles such as "Walk the Line" (2005), about Johnny Cash, and "Ray" (2004), about Ray Charles.
WHERE HAVE WE SEEN THE "BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY" ACTORS?
Regarding the musical genre itself in 2018, "So Nasce Una Estrela" is still ahead in the US, with almost 194 million, but "Bohemian Rhapsody" has no rival worldwide, where it is also the 12th most viewed film (in Portugal, more than 373,000 tickets were sold).
With inflation-adjusted revenues, the most profitable musical of all time remains the same since 1965: "Music in the Heart."
