For months I have been hyped and counting down the days to see this movie! The trailers have been absolutely electrifying and yet I have read so many mixed and poor reviews from critics. Well the fans have spoken and Bohemian Rhapsody rocked the competition and is the box office champion! The Queen biopic was Number One with an estimated $50 million take in North America and $141.7 million globally. 20th Century Fox spent $52 million to make it. The story focuses on the iconic front man of the band Freddie Mercury who passed away November 24, 1991 and played by Rami Malek. His performance has been praised and there is some Oscar buzz. Senior media analyst at comScore Paul Dergarabedian said “It was the true fans who connect to the music of Queen and in particular Freddie Mercury that made this a hit.” Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms came in second place and lower than expected with an estimated $20 million finish. Paramount’s Nobody’s Fool with an estimated $14 million. The R-rated Tyler Perry comedy stars Tiffany Haddish. In fourth place in it’s fifth weekend is Warner Bros.’s A Star is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper with $11.1 million and a domestic cume over $165 million. Internationally, A Star is Born also continued its strong global performance adding another $13.9 million this weekend for an international running cume totaling $128.3 million and a global tally just shy of $295 million. Rounding out the top five is Universal’s Halloween with an estimated $11 million three-day for a domestic cume that now tops $150 million. Including an additional $18.3 million internationally this weekend, the film’s worldwide cume now totals just shy of $230 million.
