The much-ballyhooed biopic on the rock band Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, is coming home.
The film – a celebration of Queen, their music, and lead singer Freddie Mercury (portrayed by Rami Malek) – was a surprise box office hit for 20th Century Fox, with a domestic gross of $189.2 million and global theatrical earnings of $702.6 million.
The film will be released on digital Jan. 22, followed by a Feb. 12 release on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.
Nominated for two Golden Globe Awards (Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama) and two SAG Awards (Outstanding Performance by a Cast Motion Picture and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role), Bohemian Rhapsody follows Queen’s meteoric rise and unique sound – as well as Mercury’s battle with AIDS. The film also chronicles the band’s highly acclaimed 1985 performance at the Live Aid benefit concert in England in 1985.
The home release versions of Bohemian Rhapsody include the complete Live-Aid movie performance, featuring two never-before-seen songs (“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “We Will Rock You”) that according to Fox are “packed into a 22-minute collective experience recreating the original event.”
In addition, on Blu-ray Disc and digital, fans will get a look behind the making of the film including interviews with Queen, the cast and creative team.
