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

If you are referring to the poster chosen to appear on the home page of a film,
then I inform you that this choice is made based on the number of votes that the poster had.
The most voted are the chosen ones.
To vote for a poster, just go to the image page and click on the thumb symbol that appears when you hover your mouse over the poster.
It is no use voting multiple times on the same poster.
Only 1 vote per user will be counted.
