20 Years Later: A Look Back at the Films of 1997 We’re going all-out nostalgia with this wistful look back to ‘Titanic’ and beyondIt’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since one of the most important years in film. 1997 brought record box office receipts as people flocked to see Titanic, which would go on to clean up at the Academy Awards.

Have you ever wished the fictional cities in DC Comics were real? Well, in the case of Metropolis, there actually is a real one. 45 years ago, National Periodicals (now known as DC) officially named the small town of Metropolis, Illinois (population: less than 6,500) the home of Superman. For the past 39 years, the town has held an annual festival to honor the Man of Steel called, appropriately, the Superman Celebration.
The leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy is apparently knocked out by the movie that puts his team and the Avengers together for the first time. Speaking with the Toronto Sun, Chris Pratt -- who plays Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies -- had some serious praise for Avengers: Infinity War, which he and his fellow Guardians have been shooting scenes for lately.

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".
