    1 of 2 2 of 2

      One of the biggest movie hits of the fall season has been the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

      With US$384.3 million in worldwide box-office receipts, it's already moved up to Number 17 on the annual list, according to Box Office Mojo.

      This has occurred while it’s still going strong in the theatres. It's estimated to wind up in third place this weekend behind Fantastic Beasts 2 and The Grinch.

      You can be sure that Bohemian Rhapsody is going to bring in a tidy profit for 20th Century Fox when the final numbers are counted.

      Without giving away any spoilers from the film, one of the highlights of Mercury’s career came when his band Queen performed at the Live Aid famine relief concert in London’s Wembley Stadium in 1985. 

      Some critics felt that this was the greatest live show at the gargantuan fundraising event, which was organized by former Straight music editor Bob Geldof.

      For those feeling some Freddie nostalgia in the wake of the movie, you can see his Live Aid performance below.
