Critics liked Rocketman better, too. Rocketman is ending up with close to a $30M profit. Bohemian wound up with $470M.Heard on the radio today: "I'm surprised that the Elton John movie isn't doing as well as Bohemian Rhapsody".
It's really not that surprising??? Rocketman was R, Bohemian was PG-13. If Elton John wanted a PG-13 film of his life made, he would have gone in that direction. Instead, he wanted his life to be shown warts and all.
Anyways, I did finally watch Bohemian Rhapsody this week. I personally liked Rocketman more, but I still liked it!
