Outside of the Star Wars' lasers, lightsabers and dogfights, Adam Driver likes to keep it quiet. The man who plays villain Kylo Ren admits he has not found a way to "process" the adulation that comes with being a part of the 40-year-old space opera and gives a shrug of resignation when describing how the loss of anonymity means having to plan before going anywhere.
Mark Hamill seemed fuelled by his ability as a raconteur. Even though, as he has often said on this press tour, the weirdness of promoting the highly secretive sequel Star Wars: The Last Jedi was that he could not talk about the movie. But that did not mean he had nothing to say. Despite looking tired after a full day of interviews, which had overrun by some time at The Ritz-Carlton, the 66-year-old US actor settled into regaling the media roundtable with anecdotes.
I really wanted Justice League to succeed. I wanted it to be a film that, despite the production hell and predictions of failure, made it out alive, covered in glory. Well, it is covered in something. Not every ugly duckling becomes a swan. Some just end up roasted. Zack Snyder started this in a similarly grim style to last year's joyless Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
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".
