‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Rocks With $50 Million, ‘Nutcracker’ Crumbles

  • Variety
There’s a new box office queen in town.

Fox’s Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” overperformed with a rocking $50 million when it debuted in 4,000 theaters. That was enough to dominate in North America over fellow newcomers “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” and “Nobody’s Fool.”

Bohemian Rhapsody” ranks as the second-best start for a music biopic, following 2015’s “Straight Outta Compton” ($60.2 million). For measure, it also topped the domestic debut of Warner Bros.’ “A Star Is Born,” which launched with a solid $42 million last month.

Rami Malek stars as iconic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the film, which cost around $50 million to produce. It’s a bittersweet symphony for Fox as the studio prepares to merge with Disney. “Bohemian Rhapsody” has generated a mixed critical response, though audiences have embraced it with a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore.

Podtalk: Ike Barinholtz, First Time Director for ‘The Oath’

Chicago – The life we have in these “interesting times” is rife with the peril of outside influences… which makes for difficult confrontations with both the known and the unknown. Comic actor Ike Barinholtz (“Blockers”) writes and directs his first film, “The Oath,” dealing with a family Thanksgiving within a Trump-like world.

The Oath” refers to a loyalty oath, in which a Trumpian president proposes that each American sign into over the internet. The administration promises no implications to those who do not sign it, but it becomes clear that special privileges will be applied to the signers. This begins to wear on Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a family man and ultra-progressive who preaches against the Oath. As each of his friends and family sign up, he begins to feel more distant from the America he knows. When Thanksgiving comes along, all these new points of view will be tested at a family dinner.
