Hollywood’s woes continue to mount, when it comes to actually getting people into movie theaters. Despite big box office winners such as Star Wars Ep. VIII – The Last Jedi, which has already taken in almost $600 million at the domestic box office alone, overall ticket sales were the lowest they’ve been for 24 years, the latest in a decline that has been going on since 2002. According to the National Alliance of Theater Owners (NATO), roughly 1.23 billion movie tickets were sold in 2017.
A score of good news all around for John Wick fans today—and really, who among us who loves action cinema isn’t a fan of Keanu Reeves’ best franchise? The John Wick movies have been a shot in the arm for Hollywood action cinema, a throwback to the John Woo-esque films of the ‘80s and holy grails for appreciators of good action choreography, stunts and practical effects.
It’s funny how often “duplicate” Hollywood premises seem to appear within a few months of each other. Recent months have been filled with news about Quentin Tarantino’s still-unnamed ninth film, which is reported to be about “the summer of 1969” in L.A., otherwise known as the summer of the Manson Family murders, which serve as the backdrop to the movie.
@WSJbeerbaron@wcbeergeek@hopnotes@RevBrewChicago I can't say for sure, but I imagine that if you gave anyone an option of "four packs" or "you choose whether to buy a four pack or single," they'd go with the one that gave them more choices, right?
@wcbeergeek@hopnotes@RevBrewChicago Works for me. I love the transition to smaller packaging for these types of things. My ideal is getting to try as many things as possible, so I always opt for smaller packages.
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".
