The kids are all right, especially the weird ones, in the company of Tim Burton. Based on the popular young-adult novel by Ransom Riggs, the winningly quirky fantasy adventure Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (***½ out of four; rated PG-13; in theaters nationwide Friday) acts like a greatest-hits collection for the iconic director in the way it flaunts oddball grown-ups, shows normal kids thrust into the nuttiest situations and makes the strange oh-so-cool.
Harlem's got a new superhero, and he's the baddest man on the block. Netflix's Luke Cage (Friday, ***1/2 out of four) brings together what Marvel does best, in both its movie slate and its streaming series: Mike Colter's good guy could probably hold his own against the Hulk, and he also has the emotional depth of Daredevil or Jessica Jones.
The script featured a girl with a maw of sharp teeth in the back of her head, a boy with bees living in him, an invisible kid and a headmistress who could turn into a falcon. Sounds totally like a Tim Burton movie, right?
Deepwater Horizon makes the emergency landing of Sully look like a fun afternoon on a merry-go-round. The disaster film (*** out of four; rated PG-13; in theaters nationwide Friday), which revisits the harrowing 2010 oil-rig explosion and spill in the Gulf of Mexico, is a fiery mix of white-knuckle tension, searing chaos and visceral drama.
The creators of Ash vs. Evil Dead wait all of 34 seconds after new guest star Lee Majors appears before the inevitable Six Million Dollar Man references start flying. Besides the Bigfoot jokes and a "better, stronger, faster" riff, Majors promises "a bloody good time" in the second-season premiere of the Starz horror comedy (Sunday, 8 ET/PT).
With so many remakes hitting movie screens these days, something is probably being rebooted in Hollywood right this second. But is that a good thing? Redos have become de rigueur in recent years, not only as a way to make bucks off an old property, but also to potentially jumpstart a franchise.
BROOKLYN, N.Y. - TV's newest superhero has bulletproof skin and super-strength, but right now he's getting tossed into a wall, with shards flying from a crushed mirror. It's getting messy on the set of Luke Cage, Netflix's latest Marvel series, which streams its 13-episode first season Friday.
It deals in a world of pawns rather than punches but Queen of Katwe is just as uplifting and feel-good a sports drama as any Rocky movie. Directed by Mira Nair ( Monsoon Wedding), the film (*** out of four; rated PG; in 17 cities Friday, including New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Atlanta and New Orleans; expands nationwide Sept.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
