L-R: Joe Mazzello (John Deacon), Ben Hardy (Roger Taylor), Rami Malek (Freddie Mercury), and Gwilym Lee (Brian May) star in Twentieth Century Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody. 

With worldwide grosses of more than $600 million, the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has become the number one music biopic of all-time. According to Deadline, the Rami Malek-starring film has actually broken music biopic records domestically ($175.7 million) and at the international box office ($433 million) for a global take of $608.7 million.

The massive haul pushes Rhapsody past the 2015 N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, which raked in $161 million domestically and $40 million overseas for a worldwide total of nearly $202 million. Rhapsody hasn't just crushed it at the box office, it is also emerging as an awards season favorite, with two Golden Globes and two SAG Award nominations.
