Mudbound has generated awards buzz for its unflinching look at life in the violent, segregationist South. The story, based on novelist Hillary Jordan’s prize-winning work, follows the lives of two families -- one black, one white -- on a Mississippi cotton farm in 1946. In a breakthrough role, Mary J. Blige plays a long-suffering matriarch and also co-wrote and performs the end-title song “Mighty River.” The prestige pedigree also stars Carey Mulligan and Garrett Hedlund.
LOS ANGELES: The Xbox game Halo Wars 2 is shaking things up musically as the first game soundtrack in 12 years to record with American Federation of Musician union players on Twentieth Century Fox’s Newman Scoring Stage. There, composer Gordy Haab conducted an 80-piece orchestra last fall. The game was released in February. For the final mix, Haab also integrated a 20-piece choir, recorded at Skywalker Sound, and meshed electronic music created by Finishing Move’s Brian Trifon and Brian Lee White.
Powered by a selection of carefully curated tunes timed precisely to the action on screen, Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver: Music From the Motion Picture” has raced to the front of Grammys’ soundtrack pack, with James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Awesome Mix Vol. 2” trailing by a couple of laps. Both films were written around lead characters that love music, in Wright’s case an earbud-obsessed getaway guy, and for Gunn, a Walkman-toting space cadet whose combat style includes dance moves.
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".
