Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a buddy action comedy? That concept would be hard to mess up. “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is one hard-working movie. You could get whiplash in the first 15 minutes, as the story careens around Europe, setting up a complicated plot involving a Belarusian dictator (Gary Oldman), the International Criminal Court and how assassin Darius Kincaid (Jackson) somehow fits into it all. Oh, and Darius’ wife (Salma Hayek) is in a Dutch prison for some reason.
“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is the kind of visual candy store that only the digital age could produce. Director Luc Besson creates wondrous creatures and settings, dropping viewers into a far-future adventure teeming with alien life. If only he’d left out the humans. Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are supposed to be the heroes, an adorably bickering couple who go on important missions for a galactic federation.
If horror movie characters were smart, the entire genre would collapse. No one would explore that abandoned asylum or play with that Ouija board or party in the backwoods. Whatever hides in the shadows depends on someone being dumb enough to look for it. In “Wish Upon,” that someone is Clare (Joey King), a teenager whose father (Ryan Phillippe) finds an antique Chinese box while dumpster diving in front of a mansion.
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".
