Queen Biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Dominates The Weekend Box Office!

Congrats to Bohemian Rhapsody, for it is the most popular movie in America right now!

The Queen biopic is the box office champion now this weekend, reaching a $50 million launch across North American box offices, making it the second biggest start ALL TIME for a music biopic right behind Straight Outta Compton‘s $60.2 million!

Overseas it did even better, landing $72.5 million across the globe for a worldwide grand total weekend take of a whopping $122.5 million in its very first weekend!

Not too damn bad, considering it’s much better than expected for the Rami Malek-starring film that follows the legendary British band.

It’ll be a high note to end on for 20th Century Fox, too, as they are now absorbed into new owner DisneyBohemian Rhapsody marks their biggest domestic opening outside of Deadpool 2 in more than a year’s time!

The rest of the box office paled in comparison to the Queen flick, with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms relatively bombing into second place at $20 million, after costing more than $125 million to produce.

The Tiffany Haddish flick Nobody’s Fool came in third place, turning out just $14 million — which marks a disappointment for the movie, and one of the lowest openings of filmmaker Tyler Perry‘s otherwise prolific career.
