Fox and New Regency’s four-time Oscar winner Bohemian Rhapsody rocked across the $900M mark globally this weekend.
With $900.6M through Sunday, the highest-grossing music biopic in history is also Fox’s 4th biggest movie ever worldwide, behind Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace.
But as we’ve noted throughout the film’s box office career, the production’s behind-the-scenes drama ultimately did not tarnish the project.
Part of Bo Rhap‘s power was derived from steering clear of the standard drugs and rock n’ roll biopic fare which allowed the great concert pieces and Queen songs to take center stage.
Bo Rhap‘s Dexter Fletcher, who stepped in after Bryan Singer was fired from the director’s chair, has Paramount’s Elton John musical fantasy Rocketman on deck with the world premiere now set for the Cannes Film Festival next month.
