As the director of such movies as “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Pacific Rim,” Guillermo del Toro is no stranger to blending the real world with the fantastical. But in his new movie, “The Shape of Water,” Mr. del Toro needed to sell the audience on something deeper than the girl in “Pan’s Labyrinth” and her monster friends or the soldiers in “Pacific Rim” who pilot 300-foot tall robots: He had to show a human and a creature fall in love....
Last Sunday, a little more than 11 years after the obituary for his career was written, Mel Gibson stepped out of a black SUV to a crowd of fans screaming his name. Once persona non grata in Hollywood for making anti-Semitic, racist and misogynistic remarks, Mr. Gibson walked the red carpet for his first starring role in a major...
Miriam Traore heard about the movie “It” this year and thought the killer-clown adaptation looked interesting. So Ms. Traore, a 33-year-old project manager and Jazzercise instructor in San Francisco, did what she always does when a horror flick intrigues her: She skipped the theater and went on Wikipedia. “I want to know what the story is.
Saudi Arabia lifts decades-old ban on movie theaters, but one Saudi is skeptical he'll see much. "A two-hour movie here will only last 40 minutes because they will cut everything -- they will cut kisses, and maybe even hugs." https://t.co/7qoDsZ5aJV
Andy Garcia is the latest Hollywood actor to find work in China. Per release, he'll play an "Illuminati mastermind billionaire" in "Iron Sky: The Ark," a Chinese-Finnish-Canadian co-production shooting now in Qingdao.
With "I, Tonya" in theaters, it's worth revisiting this brilliant brilliant essay on Tonya, Nancy, et al by @Remember_Sarah. I have recommended it to just about everyone at some point: https://t.co/esTw89Zn0U
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".
