After Alex Garland scored big with his surprise hit Ex Machina, Paramount (then run by Brad Grey and Rob Moore) looked very savvy when in late 2014 the studio landed the British filmmaker to adapt the sci-fi novel Annihilation. Now, however, just ahead of the movie’s February 2018 release, Paramount, now run by chairman Jim Gianopulos, is partially unloading the movie. The studio is finalizing a deal with Netflix to take over the international distribution of the film, which stars Natalie Portman.
THR's Todd McCarthy describes it as "audacious, confident and fueled by youthful energy," while geek sites including Dark Horizons claim it's "the best adaptation of a Marvel title yet." X marks the spot! More reviews of X-Men: First Class are hitting the Net today -- the movie opens Friday -- while THR's take appeared Sunday night. Our illustrious critic Todd McCarthy compares the film to the recent James Bond movie Casino Royale in how it reinvigorates the tired franchise.
Ryan Reynolds is going to catch them all. The Deadpool star has signed on to star in Legendary’s live-action movie adaptation of Pokemon, THR has learned. Reynolds now joins Justice Smith, who will be seen in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Big Little Lies actress Kathryn Newton in the movie, titled Detective Pikachu, that is based on the gaming franchise. Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) is directing the project, which is due to start shooting mid-January in London.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
