The movie has gone on to take in more than $600 (£465) million worldwide - eclipsing even The Greatest Showman - with people packing into cinemas across the world to see Rami Malek take on the role of enigmatic singer Freddie Mercury.

The actor has received a host of plaudits for his turn, culminating in him winning the best actor award at the Golden Globes, while the film itself scooped the best motion picture award.

But if you thought the film couldn't get any better, hold onto your hats, because it has.

Fans of the film can now enjoy a sing-a-long version of the movie in cinemas up and down the country.

Just what you've been crying out for, right?

You don't need me to explain how a sing-a-long works but basically the lyrics to the band's biggest hits, including 'Don't Stop Me Now' and 'We Are The Champions' will be shown on the screen and audiences will be encouraged to... well, sing-a-long.

Cineworld, Vue, Showcase and Everyman cinemas are some of the picture houses hosting the special screenings. You can find out where and when you can singalong here.

Last year the group's 1975 single 'Bohemian Rhapsody' reached 1.6 billion streams worldwide, overtaking Guns N' Roses 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'.

Universal Music Group (UMG), which represents Queen, used all globally available streaming services, including Spotify, Deezer and YouTube, to determine the song's total streams.

Lucian Grainge, chairman and CEO of UMG, said: "Bohemian Rhapsody' is one the greatest songs by one of the greatest bands in history.

"We are so proud to represent Queen and are thrilled to see the song still inspiring new fans around the world more than four decades after its release.

"My congratulations to Queen and [longtime manager] Jim Beach on an incredible achievement that is a testament to the enduring brilliance of Queen."

'Bohemian Rhapsody' is the only song to have been the UK's Christmas number one twice. It was also at number one in the UK charts for nine weeks in a row, which was a record at the time.

The song has since been covered by numerous brave artists, including Robbie Williams, Kanye West and Pink.
