The Live Action Akira Movie May Have Finally Found Its New Director Warner Bros really wants to make their live-action adaptation of Akira. And every couple of months or so a new director or producer is offered the project, which is based on the seven volume strong manga. The last time we'd heard the project's name being bandied about Jordan Peele was offered the film, but turned it down to focus on films more along the lines of Get Out.
Why Kingsman 2 Was Almost Split Into 2 Movies If you're a filmmaker, sometimes you can get carried away in front of the writing desk or behind the computer. Thankfully, the editing process takes the raw minerals of your rough cut and turns it into what might be a bright, shining diamond. But what if your movie's too big? Well, sometimes that just means you need to split it in two, which is exactly what Kingsman: The Golden Circle almost did.
Minecraft Movie: Everything We Know So Far Video game movies haven't had the best history, but that hasn't stopped Warner Bros. from pursuing the prospect of a full blown Minecraft movie. While it's not a new idea to adapt an open world video game into a film, it's certainly a project that is a hot prospect, as Minecraft continues to be a popular franchise, with the game proper, its spin-offs, and other media keeping the name in the news.
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".
