Despite getting average and mediocre reviews from professional critics, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' still managed to have a stellar opening weekend. The movie managed to have a bigger opening weekend than 'A Star Is Born' which stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

The film's Audience Score is an impressive 95% as of time of writing with a Cinemascore of an 'A' rating too.

The things fans love about the movie so far is Rami Malek's portrayal as Freddie Mercury plus people love the music of Queen in general. From a worldwide standpoint, the movie has earned over $141.7 million globally.

Opening behind 'Bohemian Rhapsody; is Disney's 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms'. The Disney film only mustered to open at $20 million in North America with a worldwide total of $58.5 million.

Word of mouth is looking weak as the Rotten Tomatoes score for the film is 35% from critics. The Audience score isn't any better with only 41% rating from normal movie fans.
