Strictly speaking in an API Search query, what is the difference between the "year" and "primary_release_year" parameters... What are their definitions? So when would one be used over the other, if not both? I suppose to answer this question we would need to know which was being queried, but not id be in control of that which furthers my question how to use these. I did see the General note in "Editing Movies"
The primary release date, if set, is used as the year you will see throughout the site when looking at a movie (page titles, movie summary in lists, etc...) If a primary release data isn't set, we look for the U.S. date next. In the even that a U.S. date hasn't been added, we simply default to the first release entry by date.
If you see a '1900' referenced on a movie, that means that no release date has been added. Head in and add one."__
But that doesn't exactly answer my question.
Perhaps if i actually knew more about movies it would, but i suppose i don't...
