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

If you want to know all of the studios that exist you will have to iterate over the data on the API. To know which IDs are available, one option could be to use the daily ID exports. We provide the IDs for companies. You can read about that here.

You'll want to use discover for this. An example of searching for movies that have the Thriller genre would look like:

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/discover/movie?api_key=###&with_genres=53

You can of course, mix any of the ~26 discover filters with this query to make a very customized query.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "full lists" but you will have to page through the results in order to get all of items. There is a 10,000 item limit on discover so depending on your use case, if you were trying to get all of the available data, you won't want to use discover for this. You would have to iterate over all of the available IDs starting at 1, and essentially pull a full copy of the database down locally building your own schema to match your requirements.

Etc.

This all depends on what you mean "by country". The only data by we store about countries is the production country, and release dates. I don't think there's a filter for discover for production country at this time, but you can search for movies that have an Indian release date with the following:
