Interview With David Sheftell From WILLY'S WONDERLAND

Bohemian Rhapsody Rocked The Box-Office

After years lingering in development limbo, and hit by controversy over the firing of director Bryan Singer, Bohemian Rhapsody has arrived with a strong launch at the US box office, earning $50 million for its first weekend.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY Movie Review ' Bloody brilliant biopic'-

The biopic charting the rise of rock supergroup Queen and charismatic, boundary-pushing lead singer Freddie Mercury also did well internationally, for a worldwide total of $141 million so far – a good result for the $50 million spent making it. And it was a much more successful film filled with music than Disney's The Nutcracker And The Four Realms. Despite looking to counter-programmer and take aim at a family audience, the fantasy film seemed more like a lump of coal than an early Chrimbo treat, landing with just $20 million. Which might seem like a chunk of change, but given its $120 million budget (before marketing costs), that's not a good start and a rare miss for the Mouse House.

Third was Tyler Perry's latest, Nobody's Fool, which arrived to $14 million, representing one of the director's lowest launches at the Stateside box office. Fourth was A Star Is Born on $11.1 million, while Halloween fell from first to fifth with $11 million.

Venom slipped to sixth place, taking in $7.8 million, with animated adventure Smallfoot down to seventh and $3.8 million. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween scared up $3.7 million in eighth, ahead of Hunter Killer, which sank from fifth to ninth on $3.5 million. The Hate U Give, meanwhile, was 10th with $3.4 million.

But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
