Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Yorgos Lanthimos has made a name for himself with films like The Lobster and Dogtooth. His unique style and constant tackling of weird subject matter has made any new project of his of immediate interest. It's also attracting top name talent. His latest, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, has Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman headlining what appears to be a revenge thriller wrapped up in a medical thriller. The trailer A24 just released for it is a great bit of marketing.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Now here's some cool news. The writer/director of The Witch, Robert Eggers, is going to be helming a remake of F.W. Murnau's silent gothic horror masterpiece Nosferatu and he'll be bringing along his Witch star, Anya Taylor-Joy, per Variety. Love or hate The Witch, you gotta admit it evoked a deep feeling of unease. That tone is required for any adaptation of Nosferatu.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. One of the coolest things I saw at CinemaCon earlier this year was a solid 10 minutes from Alexander Payne's Downsizing. It's the kind of high concept bit of weirdness that you usually attribute to people like Charlie Kaufman. The idea is that technology has given us an option to shrink ourselves down.
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".
