From Billboard article...

Queen earns its highest-charting album in 38 years, as the Bohemian Rhapsody film soundtrack surges 25-3 on the Billboard 200 with 59,000 units (up 187 percent) earned in the week ending Nov. 8 according to Nielsen Music, after the film’s opening in U.S. theaters on Nov. 2. Of its unit haul, album sales comprised 24,000 -- up 182 percent.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Nov. 17-dated chart (where Bohemian vaults to No. 3) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Tuesday, Nov. 13.

Bohemian Rhapsody is the companion album to the hit biopic movie of the same name and collects highlights from Queen’s career. The set includes the title tune, “Under Pressure” with David Bowie, a new remix of “We Will Rock You,” and a handful of tracks from the band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985 -- the first time the recordings have been released in audio form.

Bohemian Rhapsody is Queen’s highest-reaching album since 1980, when The Game spent five weeks at No. 1. (The Game includes Queen’s two Hot 100 No. 1 singles: “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.”)

The Queen excitement doesn’t stop with Bohemian Rhapsody, as the 51-track Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection vaults 194-9 with 39,000 units (up 662 percent), with 18,000 of that sum in album sales (up 380 percent). The album previously topped out at No. 48 in 2002.

With both Bohemian Rhapsody and Greatest Hits I II & III in the top 10, Queen has a pair of albums in the top 10 at the same time for the first time ever. They also represent the group’s seventh and eighth top 10 albums, overall. Queen was last in the top 10 in the spring of 1992, when the hits set Classic Queen spent six weeks in the top 10 (May 16-June 13), peaking at No. 4. At the time, the album was basking in the glow of the success of the movie Wayne’s World, which featured a head-banging sequence set to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The song peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 dated May 9, 1992.

Farther down the new Billboard 200, Queen has one more album on the tally, as Greatest Hits climbs 71-48 (13,000 units; up 26 percent).

Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" has been a rock classic for over 40 years. Now it adds a rare chart honor on the Billboard Hot 100.

Following the Nov. 2 premiere of the new Bohemian Rhapsody biopic about the band and its late frontman Freddie Mercury, "Rhapsody" re-enters the Hot 100 (dated Nov. 17) at No. 33, as it blasts 36-5 on Digital Song Sales, up 236 percent to 24,000 sold, and returns to Streaming Songs at No. 41, surging by 77 percent to 13.3 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music.

I'm throwing it out there. I'm guessing on 100 million dollars total for the week globally. So a 385 million total next Sunday evening for Bohemian Rhapsody.

In twee weken tijd bezochten meer dan 400.000 mensen de muzikale biopic, blijkt uit de cijfers van de bioscopen die donderdag zijn gepubliceerd.

A Star is Born, met Lady Gaga en Bradley Cooper. Ook deze film hikt tegen de 400.000 bezoekers aan, maar deed er zes weken over in plaats van twee.

Over 400,000 people have gone and seen the movie it the first 2 weeks in the netherlands

A star is born is close to 400,000 but took 6 weeks to get there

I'm fascinated to see how this movie will perform in India this weekend. It's been doing very well in Indonesia and South Korea but Indian movie goers don't seem to embrace foreign movies much but baring in mind Freddie Mercurys background, could it help?
