It may have been the highest grossing music biopic ever but Brian May has revealed that Queen haven't earned any money from the Bohemian Rhapsody film.

The movie, which was released last year and stars Remi Malek, tells the story of frontman Freddie Mercury's life from the early days of the band until their Live Aid performance in 1985. It won four Oscars and two Golden Globes.

But, despite reports that the band have been getting 'rich' off the profits, guitarist Brian May has said he hasn't seen any of it!

"I had to laugh the other day because there's a thing in the paper saying that we were getting rich off this movie," he said. "If they only knew. We had an accountant in the other day and we still haven't earned a penny from it!".

It was reported earlier this year that a sequel to Bohemian Rhapsody could be made in the near future.
