The Last Jedi may have been the highest-grossing movie in North America in 2017, earning $220 million on opening weekend, but in China, the world’s second-largest movie market, it is struggling to live up to expectations. Industry insiders were astounded on Friday when The Last Jedi failed to gain the top spot at China’s box office (in Chinese), earning only $28.7 million.
All links in Chinese unless otherwise notedIn a recent interview, director Vivian Qu 文晏 (wén yàn) confirmed she started writing the script for Angels Wear White 嘉年华 (jiāniánhuá) after a rash of child molestation incidents surfaced in China. But even Qu probably couldn’t have anticipated that the premiere of her film last Friday would coincide with shocking reports of child abuse and molestation at a Shanghai daycare center and a Beijing kindergarten.
Once one of China’s most popular reality shows, The Voice of China (中国好声音 Zhōngguó Hǎo Shēngyīn) has found itself embroiled in one legal controversy after another. In January 2016, license renewal talks broke down between Talpa Media, the Dutch media company behind The Voice of Holland (upon which The Voice of China is based), and its Chinese partner, Shanghai Canxing Cultural and Broadcast Company (上海灿星文化传播 Shànghǎi Cànxīng Wénhuà Chuánbò).
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".
