My film comes out in a few weeks, less than 20 people have ever seen it, I am sure this person was not one of them. Other people have reported this on reddit. Is there anyway this bots reviews can be removed?
It appears that there is a bot that just goes around leaving reviews

IMDb publishes weighted vote averages rather than raw data averages. Various filters are applied to the raw data in order to eliminate and reduce attempts at vote stuffing by people more interested in changing the current rating of a movie than giving their true opinion of it.
The exact methods we use will not be disclosed. This should ensure that the policy remains effective. The result is a more accurate vote average.

You are stressing out over reviews that most people no longer rely on as much as they used to.
15 years ago I relied on this forum. Now I never look at the reviews here at all. Ever. I just watch almost anything based on Genre and if it has a ranking 5.5 or higher. Reviews are useless. Rankings matter. And I never make a determination on weather to watch unless 5,000 or more votes are cast. I usually like 15,000 or more however. But if I like the trailer 5,000 is enough.
Make a really great trailer for your film. People are more into that than reading. They are lazy.
