Bohemian Rhapsody may have almost passed the $1 billion mark at the world box office, but Queen member Brian May says the band hasn’t made any money off of the hit Oscar-winning musical biopic.

In a recent interview on BBC Radio 2’s The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show, May claimed the band hasn’t “earned a penny” from the film — though they were surprised it became so popular.

People has reached out to the film’s production company, Gk Films, for comment.

Bela Lugosi Meets A Brooklyn Gorilla Special Screening at MaltinFest, Using Bela Lugosi’s Personal 35Mm Print

MaltinFest is taking place this weekend at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood and we have details on a special screening of Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla. Taking place this Sunday at 8:30pm, the screening is an ultra-rare 35mm print that was donated to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by Bela Lugosi Jr. Here's what Leonard Maltin had to say about the under-seen film:

"Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla is one-of-a-kind… a patently terrible movie that I find utterly fascinating. It features the great Lugosi playing a mad scientist opposite a nightclub duo named Duke Mitchell and Sammy Petrillo, who were the poor man’s Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis—at a time when Martin and Lewis were the hottest act in show business! It was directed by B-movie specialist William Beaudine and features Charles Gemora in his world-famous gorilla suit. It will only cost

Official Lineup Revealed for Renowned Film Historian Leonard Maltin’s MaltinFest

With so many incredible films released worldwide each year, it's difficult to keep track of them over time. Leonard Maltin's Maltinfest aims to shine a light on some of those films, or as he puts it, "the films that got away." Some of the films in the lineup include Tim Burton's Big Eyes, Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla, The Death of Superman Lives, and more, and Joe Dante and Josh Olson will also be on hand to record an episode of The Movies That Made Me podcast, with Maltin as their special guest.

"World-renowned film critic and historian Leonard Maltin has spent over 50 years writing about and championing movies. Now he wants to showcase some of “the films that got away.”

Every year, good films are made and released but somehow fly under the radar, never finding the recognition they deserve. Alice, Leonard and Jessie Maltin created

Freddie Mercury’s Family Made A Lot Of Money Off Bohemian Rhapsody

The success of Bohemian Rhapsody last year isn’t lost upon many. The Queen biopic walked away with four Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Rami Malek, the big prize at the Golden Globes, and made about $900 million at the worldwide box office. That’s a lot of money that the late Freddie Mercury may not get to see himself, but it looks like his family will get their share of the film’s profits.

When Mercury died in 1991, he left his London mansion and 50% of his future earnings to Mary Austin, the “love of his life” and lifelong friend portrayed by Lucy Boynton in the movie. The other 50% was divided among his family: his parents, who have since passed, and his sister, Kashmira Bulsara.

According to Sunday Express, Austin will be making at least $60 million from Bohemian Rhapsody and Bulsara is looking at around $25 million. The remaining members of Queen,

Netflix's The Silence Trailer: Kiernan Shipka Fights Flying Bat Monsters

Netflix has really stepped up the horror game over the past few years producing such neo hits as Mike Flanagan's adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and Suzanne Bier's adaptation of Josh Mallerman's Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock. And today we have the trailer and poster for their new possible hit The Silence starring Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka. The film comes to us from director John R. Leonetti, who is perhaps best known for helming the original Annabelle flick along with the PG-13 teen horror movie Wish Upon starring Joey King, and let's not let him forget, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation starring Robin Shou and James Remar.

The Silence begins when the world is attacked by a flock of terrifying creatures who hunt their human prey by sound, which sounds like, you know, bats to me. Anyhow, when these bat monsters attack the world, 16-year

China Removes All Gay Dialogue and Scenes From ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ Ends Up Creating Plot Holes

China Removes All Gay Dialogue and Scenes From ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ Ends Up Creating Plot Holes
The Oscar-winning “Bohemian Rhapsody” finally opened in select Chinese theaters on March 22 and, as expected, was edited to remove all traces of Freddie Mercury’s homosexuality. The censorship is hardly a surprise given China’s strict policies on exhibiting Lgbtq content. Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” was released in China without the kiss between Michael Fassbender and himself, for instance, while films like Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain” were denied a release. Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name,” meanwhile, was pulled from the Beijing International Film Festival in 2017.

As for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the Associated Press reports China has removed every line of dialogue that directly mentions homosexuality or bisexuality. When a report asks Mercury about his “sexual orientation” during a press conference scene, the subtitle has been changed to “sex life.” One major scene between Mercury (Rami Malek) and his girlfriend Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton) where the singer

The Politician: Ryan Murphy's Dark Comedy Will Arrive on Netflix in September
Ryan Murphy's first splashy project for Netflix is shaping up. On Friday, Netflix shared the first poster for the series as well as the release date, and there's surprisingly a lot to unpack before it debuts on Sept. 27.

In the streaming platform's official synopsis for the dark comedy, Dear Evan Hansen's Ben Platt plays wealthy Santa Barbara-based student Payton Hobart, who has "known since age seven that he's going to be President of the United States. But first he'll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School." In an effort to get "elected Student Body President, secure a spot at Harvard, and stay on his singular path to success," Payton will go toe to toe with ruthless classmates who we imagine will put Rachel Berry to shame.

Rumour: Bohemian Rhapsody sequel in development

When a film grosses $875 million at the box office and picks up four Academy Awards including Best Actor, there’s a pretty good chance that the suits behind the movie are going to be falling over themselves to get the ball rolling on a sequel, and it seems that may be the case with last year’s Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Page Six is reporting that Rudi Dolezal, Queen’s frequent music video director, has revealed that a second movie is “being heavily discussed in the Queen family” and producer and band manager Jim Beach is “planning a sequel that starts with Live Aid.”

Queen’s story doesn’t end with Live Aid of course; the band would continue to record and release albums as well as embarking on 1986’s Magic Tour, Freddie Mercury’s last before his death in 1991 of AIDS-related complications. Queen would continue to perform with guest vocalists,
