Netflix hit a new all-time high on Wall Street on Wednesday morning, one day after the streaming giant reported it topped analyst and company estimates by adding another 8.5 million new subscribers during Q4 2020. The new subscribers pushed Netflix to 203.65 million accounts overall, making it the first company to cross the 200 million subscriber threshold in the process. Both analysts and Netflix itself had projected the company would add around 6 million subscribers during the quarter. Netflix shares immediately moved higher on Wednesday morning, jumping to the company’s new all-time high of $577.77 within the first hour of trading. (Netflix’s stock price had briefly crossed $575 per share last year.) An hour and a half into trading, Netflix’s stock was up 14.2% on the day at $572.92 per share. That put Netflix well on its way to setting a new record closing price as well on Wednesday. Netflix’s previous high at the end of a trading day was set on September 1, 2020, when Netflix shares closed at $556.55. Netflix’s Q4 report, beyond the subscriber figure, gave investors a few more interesting nuggets. Two key takeaways from Netflix’s letter to shareholders on Tuesday: Netflix said it plans on being cash-flow neutral by the end of 2021 and cash-flow positive every year after. (Netflix said its “very close” to being free cash-flow positive after posting -$138 million net cash flow during Q4.) The company also said “we believe we no longer have a need to raise external financing for our day-to-day operations.” Also Read: What Joe Biden's 'Complicated' Ties to Big Tech Mean for Antitrust Crackdowns and Content Moderation On the financial side, Netflix reported earnings per share of $1.19, compared to the $1.36 EPS analysts had projected. Revenue of $6.64 billion matched analyst estimates, although its 21.5% year-over-year sales growth fell short of the 30% year-over-year growth Netflix enjoyed during the same period a year earlier. Investors don’t seem as worried about falling short of Wall Street’s earnings estimates, though, as long as Netflix continues to add subscribers at a healthy rate. Netflix on Tuesday also said it intends to “maintain $10 billion-$15 billion in gross debt” and will “explore” stock buybacks, something the company hasn’t done since 2011. Heading into Q4, Netflix had added 28.1 million subscribers during the first three quarters of 2020, which was already more than the company added in all of 2019. The company finished its record-setting year with 37 million new customers joining the fold, thanks in large part to the coronavirus pandemic, which accelerated the streaming revolution by forcing millions of people to stay inside, sitting on their couches. More than 80% of Netflix’s subscriber gains last year came from outside of North America. Top Netflix releases for Q4 included The Queen’s Gambit, which was one of Netflix’s biggest shows ever and helped spark a digital chess revolution, “Bridgerton,” and the return of “The Crown.” Read original story Netflix Stock Soars to Record High After Topping 200 Million Subscribers At TheWrap

Kamala Harris made history on Wednesday as the first female vice president of the United States and the first Black and South Asian person to hold the office. She was escorted at the inauguration by Eugene Goodman, the Capitol police officer who risked his life to draw insurrectionists away from the Senate chamber on January 6. Goodman has been named the Acting Deputy House Sergeant at Arms. Harris will be sworn in by Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina Supreme Court justice. Many took to Twitter to mark the historic occasion. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted, “It delights me to think that what feels historical and amazing to us today — a woman sworn in to the vice presidency — will seem normal, obvious, “of course” to Kamala’s grand-nieces as they grow up. And they will be right.” Also Read: What Kamala Harris Means for Diversity and Inclusion in Hollywood Added Senator Elizabeth Warren, “When @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris are sworn in today, decency and competence will be back in the White House. Millions of girls will be able to dream bigger. Millions of girls will be able to dream bigger.” Entrepreneur Shinjini Das wrote, “Kamala is going to put every white man in his place because other than Joe Biden, she is going to be every white man’s boss. I am overwhelmed by what this means for young brown rising women like me and my sisters. To feel this power is extraordinary. She makes me believe in me.” Emily Ramshaw, another CEO and the founder of 19th News, tweeted, “My daughter is young enough that she won’t remember a time when there had never been a woman Vice President. And I f—ing love that for her.” CNN anchor Abby Phillip called Harris’ swearing-in “a mark of progress for this country.” Harris herself posted a video thanking the women who came before her, and Black women in particular for being “the backbone of our democracy.” Watch Harris’ video below followed by more well-wishers.

Alex Trebek went out on top, just like he deserved. Trebek’s final week of “Jeopardy!” episodes finished No. 1 in all of syndication, and was up 29% from the prior week. For the session ending Jan. 10, “Jeopardy’s” 6.6 rating bested second-place “Wheel of Fortune’s” 6.0. The “Wheel” number is up 18% from the prior week to its own season high. Trebek’s final “Jeopardy!” week declined from the comparable week in early 2020, when the show averaged a 7.1 rating. Back then, there was added interest in the format due to ABC airing primetime tournament “Jeopardy: The Greatest of All Time.” There also wasn’t the coronavirus — at least not here in the States.

“The Flash” Season 7 premiere has been pushed from its originally scheduled date to make room for a huge “Superman & Lois” debut, The CW said Wednesday. The superhero show starring Grant Gustin, which was meant to return at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23 ahead of the series premiere of “Superman & Lois,” will now debut its seventh season a week later on March 2. Meanwhile, “Superman & Lois” is getting a supersized 90-minute series premiere Feb. 23, which will air from 8-9:30 p.m. ET/PT. The episode will be followed by a special, “Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope,” at 9:30 p.m. That event will include “sneak peeks and interviews from the cast of the new series, plus special guests discussing the legacy of the Man of Steel.” Also Read: Here Are the Premiere Dates for Broadcast TV's New and Returning Winter Shows (Updating) When “The Flash” premieres the following Tuesday at 8, “Superman & Lois” will fly into its regularly scheduled time slot at 9. Per The CW, “In ‘Superman & Lois,’ after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face-to-face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, “Little Fires Everywhere”) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, “The Peanuts Movie”) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) enters their lives.” “Superman & Lois” is based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The drama is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing (“The Flash”) and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns. “Superman & Lois” is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Read original story ‘Superman & Lois’ Gets Supersized Debut Episode, ‘The Flash’ Season 7 Premiere Pushed to March At TheWrap

How does a theater nerd properly express their excitement over the final day of Donald Trump’s presidency? With a parody of the iconic ensemble performance “One Day More” from the Broadway musical “Les Misérables.” And that’s exactly what James Corden did on Tuesday’s “The Late Late Show,” with an assist from Broadway icons Joshua Grosso, Jillian Butler, Emily Bautista, Kyle Scatliffe, Shuler Hensley, Patti LuPone and Matt Lucas. Corden opened the bit, walking into his CBS late-night show’s studio and taking on Jean Valjean’s role in the parody: “One day more. The final day of Trump as president. The White House has a brand new resident. It’s been four years of endless crimes, but now he’s finally out of time. One day more.” Then he is joined by Grosso (doing a play on Marius): “What if he just doesn’t leave. How can I sleep till he’s departed?” Also Read: Fox News' Dana Perino Says It's 'So Wrong' Not to Hire Trump Administration Alumni (Video) Grosso beings a duet with Butler (Cosette): “No one believes that he’ll concede. And all the tapes were disregarded.” Then Bautista comes in singing the tune that belongs to the character Éponine — but with Trump-centric lyrics: “One more day with him not caring. What a year this month has been.” Scatliffe’s Enjolras sings: “Biden better change the sheets” Hensley adds his riff on Javert, who is a Trump supporter in this parody: “One more day of rigged elections. This impeachment is a lie. We’ll take selfies in the Senate. We will watch the liberals cry.” Then LuPone and Lucas sing in unison as Monsieur and Madame Thénardier, also MAGA people: “We won’t wear a mask. That’s our given right. At the Trader Joe’s we’ll start a viral fight. Don’t you take our guns, we protect the peace. If you call us Karens we’ll just call police.” Also Read: Trump's Last-Minute Pardon Blitz Includes Steve Bannon, Lil Wayne and Kodak Black The song concluded: “Tomorrow we’ll discover what our guy Joe Biden has in store.

Outgoing president Donald Trump left the White House one final time Wednesday, boarding Marine One as a truly eclectic playlist blared for those assembled there. Trump-event favorites like “Macho Man,” “YMCA,” “My Way” and “Fortunate Son” played, as did the more surprising “Funeral for a Friend” and “Billie Jean.” “Billie Jean,” the Michael Jackson hit about alleged paternity, was so loud during Trump’s farewell that almost drowned out the reporters doing live shots on television. Also Read: Fox News' Dana Perino Says It's 'So Wrong' Not to Hire Trump Administration Alumni (Video) Sharing clips from NBC News, Twitter users said there was “NO WAY” the organizers were playing “Billie Jean” (there was) and questioned whether NBC News staffers were responsible for the soundtrack themselves (they weren’t). As Media Matters for America pointed out, the discussion on Newsmax centered instead on “YMCA,” with one host musing that the selection of the song was deliberate because Trump is very aware of “optics.” Journalists pointed out that Trump’s use of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” was notable given Sinatra reportedly disliked Trump when he was just a real estate tycoon. On CNN, the footage of Trump departing to the final strains of the song was cut to show President-elect Joe Biden in church with his family, preparing to be inaugurated later Wednesday.

The unnamed medic insists 'this is what he signed up for as a doctor'.
Aitor Arregi, Jon Garaño, and Jose Mari Goenaga are the three filmmakers behind the Spanish historical drama “The Endless Trench,” and the film marks the first time all three have a co-directed a film together. So how exactly did all three filmmakers manage the workflow? “We’ve been working together almost for 20 years now which is quite some time and actually we’ve been directing until now like co-directing with two directors and this is the first time that we are directing, the three of us,” Garaño told TheWrap’s Steve Pond as part of the International Film Screening Series. “This is possible because we share the same vision, and this is important for us to have obviously the same vision, and if we don’t have this vision we construct it.” “So it is very important for us to to work in preproduction before the shooting, make everything clear that each of us, we know what we have to do, what is important for the movie, and that’s the way we work,” Garaño added. “Then obviously in the shooting we divide the the functions, the roles, and then again back in the post production we are again together discussing and discussing, and this is how we do it.” Also Read: 'Quo Vadis Aida' Director Jasmila Zbanic Exposes the Bureaucracy of War From a Female Perspective (Video) Since the three directors previously collaborated and have been working together for years, the directing process wasn’t that different. “It’s longer but at the same time I think the process is quite the same because we have been working like this for a lot of years so at least for me it’s not very different,” Arregi said. Another of the ways the three Spanish filmmakers pulled it off was by shooting “The Endless Trench” in two parts — while the first part of the production shut down as the lead actor had to go off and pull a Robert DeNiro-style transformation. “In this case, the shooting was divided in two parts because we needed the main actor, Antonio de la Torre, to get fat, so we we had to stop, and then in the first part of the shooting we were, Aitor and me, on set and Jon was with the editing team,” Goenaga said. “In the second part we were, Jon and me, in the shooting, and I was with the editing team,” Goenaga said. “So we were together in the preproduction, we were together in the postproduction, but in the shooting at the same time, we only were two on the set.” “The Endless Trench” centers on a man who is so fearful of retribution for opposing Francisco Franco’s coup during the Spanish Civil War that he hides in his home for more than 30 years, with the help of his wife. The fact-based drama premiered at the 2019 San Sebastian Film Festival, where it won the Silver Shell for Best Director and the Jury Prize for Best Screenplay. The film was selected as Spain’s entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards.
