    Netflix isn’t interested in presenting sports matches, but news is a different story, executives said in a wide-ranging conference call with Wall Street that seemed to allay some investor concerns about today’s weaker-than-expected Q3 report. The stock price, which initially fell more than 7% in post-market trading, recovered to -1.2% after the call. The likelihood that Netflix will offer news programming to rival Vice — more on the features side than breaking news — is “probably high,” Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said, when prodded by CEO Reed Hastings.

In a video-conference session following its third-quarter earnings call, CEO Reed Hastings and chief content officer Ted Sarandos made clear they were headed in that direction.

    Published: Thu, Oct 15, 2015

For the unworthy, i.e., literally everyone except Thor and the odd someone else from time to time (a handy loophole for writers), Mjolnir simply cannot be lifted off the ground. It is this property that electrical engineer Allen Pan, aka Sufficiently Advanced on YouTube, decided to replicate in his very own take on a "working" Mjolnir.

That makes it clear the film’s overseas haul is not going to offset the domestic shortfall and over-sized budget of the PG-rated origin tale directed by Joe Wright and starring Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund and Amanda Seyfried.
