The Movie Database Support

Hi experts,

I am new to this forum. I am using Discover api to get movie metadata page by page. but i cannot get whole information with one call. i need information about

1) basic movie information 2) trailer url 3) credits 4) budget 5) status , vote etc

I know if i use movie api i can get one by one, but i prefer to get in one call by discover API, please help me to get.

Thank you in advance.

Hi GOPY29,

There is no way to get all of this data in any of our "list" pages. You'll have to go off and query the data you want separately.


Hi Travis,

Thank you for the quick reply. That mean, initially i should use discover api then movie api for full movie details. Am i right?

thank you. gopy

Yes, that would be the workflow right now.

I usually recommend caching data locally so you don't have to make as many requests.


hi, just wondering why we cannot use one api to call out detail info for multiple movies in one page? thanks!


This is not something we plan to support at this time.
