Continuing to display impressive staying power, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle stayed atop the box office in its fifth weekend, earning an estimated $20 million from 3,704 theaters to beat out new offerings 12 Strong and Den of Thieves. To boot, Jumanji cleared the $300 million mark domestically to become the fifth-biggest Sony title of all time, not accounting for inflation.
Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley has steered the studio ship during a tumultuous time for the film industry, with hits including Jordan Peele's Get Out (which grossed $254 million against a $4.5 million production budget) and Girls Trip, which was one of the few comedies that clicked in 2017, earning $139 million against a $19 million budget. And The Fate of the Furious — the eighth installment in the franchise — was the year's No. 3 film at the global box office ($1.236 billion).
Every great tennis player has a signature gesture or move before serving. A head roll or a shoulder shrug or a racket twirl or some other idiosyncratic tick. For Billie Jean King, it was bouncing the ball twice before serving. Never less, never more. Emma Stone became an expert at it. In late winter and spring of 2016, she spent scads of time with King on a tennis court studying how the 74-year-old Grand Slam legend snapped the ball on the asphalt two times before launching it across the net.
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".
