It took nearly five years and a crew of a thousand, but the second chapter of Christopher Miller and Phil Lord’s “Spider-Verse” film series has arrived. In “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” Lord and Miller set out not just to surpass the high bar of their 2018 original but upend big-studio animation and the more-of-the-same expectations of sequel-making. “Across the Spider-Verse” blew past expectations on opening weekend, debuting with $120.5 million, more than triple what “Into the Spider-Verse” launched with. What was once a quirky bit player in the hulking world of superhero movies has turned into a blockbuster in its own right.

But he was grilled by the newspapers' lawyer, who said many of Harry's allegations of illegal activity were “speculation.”

It was not possible to verify the claims. The disaster has potentially far-reaching environmental and social consequences as homes, streets and businesses flooded downstream and emergency crews began evacuations.
