No one is safe from ridicule. Not even Batman. Batman & Robin / Warner Bros.With a few exceptions, every actor in Hollywood wants a piece of the superhero genre. Marvel and DC have redefined the movie landscape with their cinematic universes, and anybody with a resume is crawling out of the woodwork to audition for the next big part. With their long, rich histories, it can be hard to cast the right person as a comic book icon.
In 2017, Power Rangers fans were treated to a franchise first with a PG-13 film that upped the ante in spectacle and production value, but any ’90s kid familiar with the series knows that the only true Power Rangers flick was the first one, the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. A troubled production from the start, MMPR was a rushed project meant to capitalize on the overwhelming popularity of the show.
“Use the Force, Luke.” Fewer words have gone on to define a franchise more than those fateful four spoken by Obi-Wan Kenobi to the young Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. They challenged the aspiring young Jedi to trust his feelings, close in on the Rebel base and fire the shot heard around the galaxy to destroy the Death Star, giving the Rebellion it’s first fighting chance against the Galactic Empire.
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".
