The new film, "Okja," opens on June 28 amidst controversy surrounding its financier and distributor, Netflix. Directed by South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho ("Snowpiercer," "Mother"), "Okja" follows the adventures of a young girl named Mija (An Seo Hyun) as she attempts to save her best friend, Okja — a genetically engineered giant pig — from the clutches of a multi-national Monsanto-like corporation headed by Tilda Swinton.
When Sofia Coppola was working on “The Beguiled,” she got an email from Jeffrey Eugenides, author of the novel, “The Virgin Suicides.” The book was the basis for Coppola’s 1999 feature film of the same name, and carries many similarities with her new feature. “[Jeff] said, ‘Oh you're making a film of “The Beguiled.” I always remember loving that movie,’” said Coppola in an interview with The Frame.
When director Patty Jenkins was working on "Wonder Woman," she was well aware of the pressure of directing a big-budget superhero movie. The lack of opportunities for female directors in Hollywood and the failure of the female-led "Ghostbusters" were making headlines as she was deep into production. Jenkins told The Frame: "I think the only way to handle it was to not think about it, but I was aware. And then, in the aftermath, I've been extremely aware.
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
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".
