The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at support@themoviedb.org.

Sincerely,

Travis

primary_release_date
It is the year of the worldwide release of the film. The one that appears in parentheses next to the title.

release_date
It is the year that it was premiered in some country. It is not necessarily the worldwide launch.
Or the releases on TV or Bluray.

WRONG If you, in your API Request, specify a region, you will receive the release date in that region. WRONG

For example this film:
https://v5.themoviedb.org/movie/11832-babettes-g-stebud
It was released worldwide on 1987-08-11 (Norway)
But in the USA it was released on 1988-02-04

The "get details" methods do not support the region filter. You'll need to call the /release_dates method and parse out the region and type you're interested in yourself.

I'm already doing this way.

A thousand apologies. I made a mess. frowning_face
