There is a trailer for The Gifted that is getting geeks all excited, because it looks pretty damn good. To paraphrase its own showrunner Matt Nix, itâ€™s like the X-Men meets 1988â€™s Running on Empty (the River Phoenix movie about a family in hiding). However, there is one catch: the X-Men are not around. And we just donâ€™t mean theyâ€™re off-screen. As they say in the trailer, â€œThe X-Men, the Brotherhood, we donâ€™t even know if they exist anymore.â€?
We are one year out from the Ghostbusters film of last year. But wherever you stand on the comedy which starred Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, it clearly didnâ€™t set the box office on fire. Be that as it may, Ivan Reitman, who produced the movie and directed a the originalÂ Ghostbusters, is far from undaunted. While stepping foot inside of San Diego Comic-Con for a Ghostbusters panel of biblical proportions, he had much to say about the future of the brand.
Ghostbusters is one of the most beloved concepts in movie history. How else can you explain peopleâ€™s giddy anticipation for all new versions of the brand over 30 years after the original film, which only had one official sequel?
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".
