'Bohemian Rhapsody' sing-along versions coming to theaters

8 Comments

"Bohemian Rhapsody" will give moviegoers an opportunity to rock out with the film.

Twentieth Century Fox announced Wednesday that the Golden Globe-winning Queen biopic will be released as a sing-along in more than 750 theaters in North America on Friday. The film includes some of the band's most popular songs such as "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions."

The film is also being expanded from 1,000 theaters to more than 1,300 on Friday. It has grossed more than $734 million worldwide.

The expansion comes days after "Bohemian Rhapsody" won the Golden Globe for best film drama. Rami Malek took home a Globe for best actor for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

Last year, Fox held sing-along versions for "The Greatest Showman."

How fun!

I remember seeing The Sound of Music in London, where the audience all dressed up, added dialogue and generally had a great time.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is another one of those films that can run at a venue for years and a great night out is guaranteed.

I'd love to go in Japan just to hear everyone singing: "ui uiru ui uiru loku yu."

The third sucker money sucking release will eliminate the music track so attendees can bring their own instruments to the theater and fill in the soundtrack.

These singalongs are actually quite fun. If you're as uninterested as deadbeatles, then fine, stay away, but an audience all singing along is a great experience for those interested. Do we really want to complain about studios actually giving people what they want?

There was a little bit of that going on when I saw the newer version of 'Yellow Submarine' last year.

I'll just say it was a surreal psychedelic blowout. We sang the songs in elementary school music class as well as on religious and college retreats at firesides. And the psychedelic animation is better than ever! Brings back great childhood feelings. Seeing it on the widescreen in a cinema is the BEST way to experience it!
