Despite dozens of attempts across multiple decades, Hollywood has yet to produce a truly successful movie based on a video game. There was a chance it could’ve happened last year with Assassin’s Creed, which had the pedigree to be something special, but reviews were tepid and box office sales disappointing. It came as a surprise to no one when plans were announced for a rebooted Tomb Raider film series based on the outstanding 2013 video game.
There are memes, and then there are Batman memes. It should come as no surprise that a fictional character as popular and iconic as Batman would inspire an endless number of pop culture memes. Nor is it terribly surprising that so many of them are this funny. There have been a huge number of interpretations of the Dark Knight, after all, and any and all of them are perfect fodder for humor. When you really think about it, in comedic terminology, Batman is a perfect straight man.
Xur, in case you’re new to the Destiny universe, is an “agent of the Nine,” who comes and goes as he wants. The Nine are one of Destiny’s biggest mysteries. All that’s known about them is that they’re some kind of ancient alien beings. They’re terribly aloof and never make personal contact with Guardians in the games. What they are and what they want has never been explained.
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".
