Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen were enough to dethrone Michael Myers from atop the box office.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” opened up with an impressive $50M this weekend at the box office. In fact, this film was enough to push “Halloween,” which was tops at the box office the past three weekends all the way to number four with $11M.
Besides the Queen biopic, no other film really fared all that well at the box office. Disney’s latest film, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” performed terribly, only managing $20M. While it did take second place this weekend, the film cost an estimated $125M to produce.
Tyler Perry’s latest, “Nobody’s Fool” rounded out the top three at this weekend’s box office. It brought in $14M.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” will have some stiff competition next weekend, as the update, animated flick “The Grinch,” “The Girl in the Spider’s Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story,” and the horror film, “Overlord” all hit theaters.
