I’m pained writing this post, but like death and taxes remakes are inevitable. Movies received the remake treatment since the first film was shot in front of a camera, and I expect remakes will continue into the next century. The problem is the movies Hollywood is deciding to “resurrect.” Does anyone REALLY want a remake to West Side Story? No. And based on director Steven Spielberg’s track record of picking projects only to abandon them, I’m hoping this post ends up being just a story on my site.
Back in 2011 and still navigating the waters of having the highest grossing picture of all time with Avatar, Titanic director James Cameron announced he was actively involved in a remake of the 1956 sci-fi classic, Forbidden Planet. Doing a cursory search for updates on the project this week yielded zero movement from seven years back, and with Cameron entrenched in Avatar sequels I doubt he’ll be getting to it anytime soon.
The long-time president of Tyler Perry Studios, Ozzie Areu, is leaving the company to start his own film and television studio, Areu Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter. The move could open the door for a string of new Latino-produced content. With his brother, Will, joining the company, the venture will be a family affair. And Ozzie will stick close to home, as the duo has purchased Perry’s former Atlanta studio for its base of operations.
I'm having a massive anxiety attack over this piece I'm writing. I don't know if it's because it's for a site I love or the criticism I received about the topic but i have a mountain of half-finished sentences, no direction and I'm a mess.
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".
