"Bohemian Rhapsody" is the presales champion of this year's movie musicals to date, outpacing both Bradley Cooper's "A Star is Born" and "Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again" at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle.

According to a survey of more than 1,000 "Bohemian" moviegoers:

  • 94% are Queen fans.
  • 93% can't wait to see Rami Malek's performance as Freddie Mercury.
