I tend to pronounce this as /baɪˈɒpɪk/ (to rhyme with myopic) - is that just me? 16:47, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

It looks like it would rhyme with myopic, but it is composed differently. Biopic is bio + pic (BIOgraphical PICture). So that’s why it’s pronounced like BIO-pick. —Stephen (Talk) 16:04, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
i've heard others pronounce it that way, so it's definitely not just you, but I still think it's wrong. If such a pronunciation ever becomes standard we could say it comes from bio- + -opic, thus "seeing life", which is a believable etymology for what it means. Soap (talk) 17:44, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
