Then the soldiers see the speck that becomes a terrifying silhouette. It's a German dive bomber, zeroing in on the hundreds of men, waiting on the shores of Dunkirk for rescue. This is just one of a series of striking images from director Christopher Nolan. In the past he's pushed the boundaries of blockbuster, sending us into space, the gritty streets of Gotham City and into a time-bending story that folds into itself.
Today's prevailing mantra in TV and film is that nostalgia rules â€” but there's definitely nothing wrong with shaking up a long-running franchise. After more than 50 years and a dozen quirky male Time Lords, actress Jodie Whittaker was named the 13th Doctor Who, capturing one of sci-fi TV's most coveted leading roles and immediately acknowledging the expected outrage from one segment of the fan base. "Doctor Who represents everything that's exciting about change.
The latest iterations of Transformers, The Mummy and Pirates of the Caribbean may have stumbled at the movie theatres, but, just in time for the long weekend, there's a new batch of films with smaller budgets and big ideas. Director Edgar Wright (think Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim) didn't get to make his Ant-Man movie but is roaring back into action with the audaciously entertaining Baby Driver. Like most of Wright's stories it's an original tale brimming with action and rat-a-tat-tat dialogue.
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".
