L-R: Ben Hardy (Roger Taylor), Gwilym Lee (Brian May), Joe Mazzello (John Deacon), and Rami Malek (Freddie Mercury) star in Twentieth Century Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
Bohemian Rhapsody will give moviegoers an opportunity to rock out with the film. Twentieth Century Fox announced Wednesday (Jan. 9) that the Golden Globe-winning Queen biopic will be released as a sing-along in more than 750 theaters in North America on Friday (Jan. 11). The film includes some of the band’s most popular songs such as “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.”
The film is also being expanded from 1,000 theaters to more than 1,300 on Friday. It has grossed more than $734 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing music biopic ever. “We are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to see this outstanding Golden Globe-winning film featuring Rami Malek’s amazing Golden Globe-winning performance in theaters all over the U.S. and Canada in both its original form and in a never-before-experienced ‘sing-along’ version,” said Chris Aronson, Fox’s president of domestic distribution in a statement.
The expansion comes days after Bohemian Rhapsody won the Golden Globe for best film drama. Rami Malek took home a Globe for best actor for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Last year, Fox held sing-along versions for The Greatest Showman.
