2021 box office closes with more fireworks for 'Spider-Man'

NEW YORK – Hollywood closed out 2021 with more fireworks at the box office for “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which topped all films for the third straight week and already charts among the highest grossing films ever. But even with all the champagne popping for “No Way Home,” the film industry heads into 2022 with plenty of reason for both optimism and concern after a year that saw overall ticket revenue double that of 2020, but still well off the pre-pandemic pace. 

Movie theaters began the year mostly shuttered but ended it with a monster smash. Sony Pictures' Marvel sequel “No Way Home” grossed an estimated $52.7 million over the weekend to bring its three-week total to $609.9 million. That ranks 10th all-time in North America. Worldwide, it's made $1.37 billion, a total that puts it above “Black Panther” and makes it the 12th highest grossing film globally.

Rapper Kodak Black arrested on trespassing charge in Pompano Beach

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Rapper Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was arrested early Saturday morning in Pompano Beach, the Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed.

According to authorities, Black was taken into custody just before 1:30 a.m. near the 1600 block of Northwest 10th Drive.

Further details about the circumstances surrounding the accusations against him were not immediately released.

Black previously had a three-year federal prison sentence for falsifying documents used to buy weapons at a Miami gun store commuted by President Donald Trump on his last day in office. He had served about half his sentence.

In April 2021, Black was sentenced to probation for assaulting a teenage girl in a South Carolina hotel room.

He was originally charged with rape, but accepted a deal and pleaded guilty to first-degree assault at the Florence County courthouse.
