It's drawing in huge crowds all across the globe and now the Queen film Bohemian Rhapsody has taken out the title as the second-highest grossing music biopic ever, with $127 million grossed in the US so far.

According to Rolling Stone, the film - which primarily focuses on the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury - has beaten out the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line, staring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon which grossed $119 million during its US season.

While it has secured the #2 place, Bohemian Rhapsody is not expected to take over the top spot, which is held by NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, which grossed $161 million on its US release in 2015.

Bohemian Rhapsody has so far made $384 million worldwide and stars Rami Malek as Mercury. The Music's Neil Griffiths caught up with Malek while he was in Sydney for the film. Watch it below and read our review of the film here.
