Rami stars as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the movie and it's generating a ton of Oscar buzz. "They were much more conventional". The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.

It'll be a high note to end on for 20th Century Fox, too, as they are now absorbed into new owner Disney; Bohemian Rhapsody marks their biggest domestic opening outside of Deadpool 2 in more than a year's time!

Live Aid took place on July 13, 1985. And while this is used as a big dramatic point in the film, the fact is that he wasn't even the first member of Queen to do a solo album.

Kevin De Bruyne could be out for up to six weeks with knee ligament damage, Manchester City have announced. De Bruyne was given a start, however, and impressed before his injury with his teasing crosses and passes.

Among all musical biopics, Bohemian Rhapsody ranks second behind Universal's Straight Outta Compton which debuted to $60.2M in August 2015 and played out to $161.1M stateside.

As Google will clearly tell you, drummer Roger Taylor released a solo album in 1981 (Fun in Space) and another in 1984 (Strange Frontier).

In 2011, it arrived at Vesta , the second largest object in the asteroid belt that is nearly twice the size of California. NASA's Dawn spacecraft has run out of fuel and dropped out of contact with mission control, the agency said Thursday.

"Sacha wanted to make a very outrageous film, which I would imagine Freddie Mercury would have approved of", said Frears.
