It will do it today. By “it,” I mean the Stephen King adaptation will pass the unadjusted domestic gross of The Exorcist ($232.9 million, counting the 2000 reissue). With a $4m Wednesday and a $232.4m domestic total, it’ll happen sometime this afternoon or evening. Andres Muschietti’s buzzy, well-reviewed adaptation will then be the top-grossing R-rated scary movie of all time in North America.
The Internet was ablaze around 36 hours ago over a reveal that Linda Hamilton would be returning to the role of Sarah Connor in the Tim Miller-directed/James Cameron-produced Terminator movie. We already knew Arnold Schwarzenegger was coming back, but Hamilton’s return (along with Cameron’s alleged involvement) will indeed make this sixth Terminator movie into something of an event, if only by virtue of theoretically setting it up as a quasi-Force Awakens of Terminator movies.
Thanks to the blow-out success of It and the likely solid figures posted by the likes of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The LEGO Ninjago Movie and American Made, 2017 is probably going to post a record September season in terms of unadjusted domestic grosses. And if that happens, it will be the third month this year, out of nine thus far, where said overall domestic grosses set a record in 2017.
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".
