The year's most exciting cinematic success so far is without a doubt Wonder Woman, a film that opened far ahead of most people's predictions and then captured the hearts of audiences worldwide for one of the strongest sustained runs in superhero cinema history.
This weekend sees the arrival of one of the year's most anticipated films, as director Christopher Nolan's passion project Dunkirk arrives amid widespread acclaim and must-see status. Although a prestige war film might not sound like a surefire Summer hit, this is Nolan we’re talking about and these are anything but regular times. The Summer movie season has suffered a few high-profile misfires and some underperformances that so far are creating a slight drag on 2017’s domestic box office.
This weekend brings the first major Oscar contender of 2017, in blockbuster form no less. War for the Planet of the Apes will ride a wave of strong buzz and acclaim into first place at the box office this weekend. Will audiences be as thrilled as the film critics and reward the film by turning it into yet another of this Summer's opening weekend overachiever? The recently rebooted Apes franchise has amassed more than $1.2 billion in worldwide theatrical receipts over the past seven years.
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".
