Discuss Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Item: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Language: en

Type of Problem: Incorrect_content

Extra Details: This release is a UK release and NOT the same as the IMDB id tt0241527. Why is the UK title being forced here using this IMDB id?? This title is NOT the correct main title it's just a AKA title! I don't think this title should be changed but I can NOT see a reason why this tmdb id should have a imdb.com id of tt0241527!!!

The IMDb can no longer to be fully trusted as they appear to have made an incorrect change using the alternative US title as the original title (which is just plain wrong). We will always keep the correct original titles here and that means it will stay as it is. Hopefully the IMDb crew will correct their mistake soon.

As for the IMDb ID issue, I'm not sure what you mean. There is only one IMDb ID for this movie and that is the one we keep here. What IMDb ID do you suggest we put in there instead? I'm very confused.

All titles on IMDB has the same ID, so this is the right movie with this ID and this is the official http://www.warnerbros.com/harry-potter-and-sorcerers-stone what's the right original title I don't know

Yes, the official US website has always used the US title. The movie was produced in the UK and until a month ago had always carried the correct original title. So why change it now? Note that we have always had the support from Travis in this matter. He has even made many replies himself in similar topics over the years!

(And the background to the title issue is that the original book title was changed in the US which is why they wanted to make that change in the US as well for the movie.)

Sure I only wanted to reply to armega that the ID is the right one

All good then! And I have made a change at IMDb to see what happens. Usually, though, they are very slow, but it can be good to change errors there as well at times.

Thanks for taking the time on this. I guess I was just mislead by IMDB. :/
