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

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

But in reality, Mercury did not even know he had the disease before Live Aid.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" has proven to be a hit with audiences all over the world. "They were much more conventional".

Despite a budget of $125 million, the film debuted with just $20 million.

Though Mr Robot star Rami Malek's performance as Freddie Mercury has been applauded, most have deemed it a run-of-the-mill biopic, and something of a missed opportunity to explore the Queen's frontman's legendary hellraising. Mercury's tragic death from AIDS was a defining moment in the early '90s fight for AIDS awareness.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film holds a 60% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and some reviews have been critical of the film's take on Mercury's life and sexuality.

El Chapo trial expected to open in NY
In a sign of the level of attention on the case and the notoriety of the defendant, the jury will be kept anonymous. Those still in the running include a self-described professional impersonator of the late pop star Michael Jackson.

Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters
In the 16th Congressional District, incumbent Republican Adam Kinzinger will defeat Democrat Sara Dady, 55 percent to 45 percent. If the Democrats win one chamber or both, Klain says, then Congress returns to being a check and balance on the president.

The gravest factual error is the film's handling of Mercury's HIV diagnosis.

As Google will clearly tell you, drummer Roger Taylor released a solo album in 1981 (Fun in Space) and another in 1984 (Strange Frontier). Bad Guy didn't arrive until 1985.

Meanwhile, the true story is quite different: Other members of Queen went solo before Mercury did, the band toured together for the year leading up to Live Aid to support their album The Works, and Mercury's illness is not what brought the band back together.

All this being said, Bohemian Rhapsody did fetch $50 million United States dollars at the North American box office this weekend, so maybe it doesn't really matter.
