SAN DIEGO | Amid Comic-Con’s inclusive geek culture, it is not uncommon to see men dressed up as Wonder Woman and women showing up as Batman — though they will be quick to tell you they were in fact Bat Girl.“I’ve noticed the cosplay here doesn’t adhere to traditional gender roles,” said indie writer/director, John Burr, who was at Comic-Con looking for distributors for his latest film project.The 48th annual Comic-Con, the world’s biggest comic book and nerd culture convention, illustrated...
SAN DIEGO | Comic-Con attendees have been fascinated by outer space for years, both in the realm of nonfiction and fictional television — wanting to boldly go where no one has gone before.Toward that end, the latest series in the “Star Trek” franchise will break new ground: “Star Trek: Discovery” will have its first openly gay character, played by Anthony Rapp, who is best known for his role in the Broadway musical, and subsequent film, “Rent.”“[‘Rent’ co-star] Wilson Cruz will play my love...
While Comic-Con has traditionally been a haven for male-starring action movies, with the phenomenal success of “Wonder Woman,” Hollywood is fast coming to realize that female-led action movies and television shows — whether the women are in front of or behind the camera — are a sizable draw.“It would be nice to have some momentum and sustain it,” actress Charlize Theron said during the Entertainment Weekly-sponsored panel “Women Who Kick Ass.”“A film like ‘Wonder Woman’ awoke studios to...
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".
