Horror revivals are all the rage right now. And why shouldnâ€™t they be? Warner Bros. and New Lineâ€™s new take on the Ballad of Pennywise in It has dominated the September box office in a big way. So maybe thereâ€™s hope yet for Jigsaw and Leatherface this October? (Granted, neither can bust a move like olâ€™ Pennywise can.) But forget about monsters. Demonic houses and wrecked real estate also wants in on the action, hence Amityville: The Awakening is finally having its release.
Weâ€™re living in a brave new world of moviemaking when some of the year's best films have been released by either Amazon Studios (The Lost City Of Z and The Big Sick) or Netflix (Okja). That number might also soon increase since Amazon Studios is partnering with Todd Haynes, the Oscar nominated writer-director of Far From Heaven and Carol. Indeed, one needs to look no further than the first trailer for Wonderstruck to get an idea of the potential inherent in his next project.
HBO has been coy up until now about whether George R.R. Martin was accurate when he bloggedÂ that a fifth Game Of Thrones spinoff was in development, but now EW is confirming it as a definite, and Bryan Cogman is writing the project. As per EW, the fan-respected Game Of Thrones writer and producer has been attached for months to an unnamed project set in the world of Westeros, and heâ€™s working closely with Martin himself to bring it to fruition.
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".
