One of the more popular movies out of the “Midnight Madness” section of the Toronto International Film Festival last year was Joseph Kahn’s Bodied, a hip hop satire that was produced by Eminem and his manager and Def Jam CEO Paul Rosenberg. Kahn’s film even won the Grolsch People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award, and it was one of Tracking Board Editor-in-Chief Jeff Sneider’s favorite movies from the “Midnight Madness” section.
Cinedigm has released the first trailer for Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse’s Dear Dictator starring Michael Caine as General Anton Vincent, a British Caribbean dictator formed to leave his island nation, who finds refuge with his pen pal Tatiana (Odeya Rush), a teen girl living in the suburbs who wants to learn how to overthrow her high school’s “mean girls.” It’s an interesting twist on the high school comedy from the writer/directors of 2016’s Amateur Night, their latest film starring Katie...
Seven years after starring together in Tate Taylor’s The Help, for which they both received Oscar nominations, Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer will reunite as the co-stars of a new untitled Universal holiday comedy, the Tracking Board has confirmed. The project came as an untitled pitch from Chastain and her production company Freckle Films that Universal picked up out of a bidding war with Fox and Paramount.
I decided to watch the trailer for Forever My Girl so I could write about it in tomorrow's preview and it was preceded by a Unicef video that made me feel guilty for writing about movies rather than doing something useful.
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".
