Rami Malek's Bohemian Rhapsody has won the weekend box office in its debut!

Despite a budget of $125 million, the film debuted with just $20 million. The band played a six-song set at Live Aid in Wembley Arena back on July 13, 1985, revisiting some of their most popular tracks including "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Radio Ga Ga", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and the double hit of "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions".

The movie made a huge $50 million on its opening weekend in the United States, and over $91 million overseas, bringing in a grand total of $141,703,510.

And with a solid A CinemaScore, and close to 5 stars on PostTrak, Bohemian Rhapsody isn't calming down.

The Oscar-winning Amadeus would have made £123 million in today's money, while The Coal Miner's Daughter, which found Sissy Spacek as country singer Loretta Lynn, would have made $167 million.

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.

"Sacha wanted to make a very outrageous film, which I would imagine Freddie Mercury would have approved of", Frears told Vulture. "Outrageous in terms of his homosexuality and outrageous in terms of endless naked scenes". With Queen having yet another resurgence and the band's music being introduced to yet another generation in a big way, new fans will see the band's legendary Live Aid performance for the first time. "They were much more conventional".
