It has been over five months since “Bohemian Rhapsody” was first released in theaters, but it is still hitting box office milestones, as it crossed $900 million worldwide on Sunday.

Though the Queen biopic finished its North American run weeks ago with a $216 million domestic total, it is still bringing in moviegoers in Asia. In Japan, the film has now earned $114 million, while Chinese audiences finally got to see the film when it hit theaters last month. While there aren’t as many Queen fans in China as there are in Japan and Korea, the market has added $13.9 million to push “BoRap”‘s overseas total to $685 million.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” ranks sixth among all 2018 releases in global gross, besting hits like “Venom” and “Deadpool 2.” It is the highest grossing music biopic of all time, and is also the only film in the top 10 that is not connected to a franchise. It also added four Oscars to its list of achievements, including a Best Actor win for lead star Rami Malek.

Though it was released before distributor 20th Century Fox was officially merged with Disney, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was prominently featured at the latter studio’s investor meeting announcing the programming for the launch of the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. In the studio’s 83-year run as an independent studio, “Bohemian Rhapsody” sits fourth on Fox’s all-time box office charts, sitting only behind “Avatar,” “Titanic” and “Star Wars: Episode I.”
