‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ wins two Golden Globe Awards

The film is coming to digital later this month and home video next month

The Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody was the winner of two Golden Globe awards last night (Sun, Jan 6th) in Hollywood. The film won “Best Motion Picture (Drama),” and Rami Malek took home the award for “Best Actor Motion Picture” for his portrayal of their flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury.

The film has been crowned the No. 1 music film of all time in the United States after raking in $164 domestically since it’s early November release. It dethroned the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, which pulled in $161 million domestically in 2015.

The 20th Century Fox film is coming to Digital and Movies Anywhere on January 22nd and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on February 12th via 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. The No. 1 Music Biopic of All Time will include the complete Live Aid movie performance not seen in theaters.

Fans can experience the story behind the band and the making of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the No. 1 streamed song of the 20th century and other favorites like “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody to Love,” “We are the Champions” and more, for a musical adventure that will make you laugh, sing, dance, and cry.

A special Steelbook edition will be released via Best Buy featuring star Rami Malick as Freddie Mercury singing at the iconic Live Aid in yellow and purple with a full color photo of the four actors as the band on both inside sleeves. Target will have an exclusive edition featuring a 24 page gallery book that gives fans a look inside the making of, music, and fashion of the film. A Walmart exclusive giftset will also be available that includes an official Queen t-shirt.

The Bohemian Rhapsody: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features audio of the band’s 1985 Live Aid set for the first time ever. Alongside the show-stopping Live Aid performances of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Hammer To Fall” and “We Are The Champions,” the album features other rare live tracks spanning Queen’s entire career, new versions of old favorites, and a choice selection of the band’s finest studio recordings.

The soundtrack is available on CD with a 2 LP vinyl edition coming on February 8th via Hollywood Records. A picture disc version and “Bohemian Rhapsody”/“I’m In Love With My Car” 7” will be available Saturday, April 13th for Record Store Day 2019 at independent record stores worldwide.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
