Bohemian Rhapsody hit the theaters on November and collected $50 million in box office sales in the United States and $141.7 million globally over the weekend, according to CNN.

The Queen biopic follows the story of the British band and lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, who is played by Rami Malek.

The iconic band won several major music awards including two Grammy Hall of Fame awards in 2009 and 2004 for their hit songs “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The band was also nominated for two Grammy Awards, one  in 1977 for “Bohemian Rhapsody” and another Grammy in 1981 for “Another One Bites The Dust.”
