Bohemian Rhapsody Available on a Choice of Digital Formats
Bohemian Rhapsody is now available digitally and it will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on Feb. 12.
The 4K Ultra HD option features the immersive object-based Dolby Atmos surround-sound format, which makes sound disperse from all directions, including overhead, to fill a home theater with a more realistic aural experience.
Bohemian Rhapsody was a massive box office success, becoming the eighth-highest-grossing film of 2018 worldwide and the highest-grossing music biographical film of all time.
The film has garnered praise with five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Rami Malek’s portrayal of Freddie Mercury, and winning two Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor in a motion picture (Drama).
The movie is named after the band's iconic classic rock song Bohemian Rhapsody, which was released on the 1975 album A Night at the Opera.
Queen also had a number of other hit records and songs. Other famous songs from the band include Another One Bites the Dust, Killer Queen, You're my Best Friend, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and Under Pressure, which the band collaborated with David Bowie to produce.
In addition, the band entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2001 for its body of work.
