The Queen biopic cleared the $900 million mark at the worldwide box office over the April 12-14 weekend to become the No. 4 title of all time for 20th Century Fox, not adjusted for inflation.

 

Fox made Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as the late Freddie Mercury, with New Regency and producer Graham King.

 

Through Sunday, the award-winning film has earned $216.2 million in North America and $685.2 million overseas, where a late run in China ($13.9 million) pushed its worldwide total past $900 million. The movie also continues to play in Japan, where it has earned a stellar $115.9 million to date.

 

Bohemian Rhapsody, which first hit theaters in early November, had already become the top-earning music biopic of all time before achieving its latest milestone and had defied expectations by even topping $800 million.

 

 

Bohemian Rhapsody won four Academy Awards, including a best actor nod for Malek. It also received best drama and best actor in a drama honors at the Golden Globes.
