How do I change the year of production on my IMDB page. I uploaded the project to without a box a while ago, but it was never released and has changed significantly and now I would like to change the year. Any advice on how to get this done?

Hi Nailah -

If your title is listed on the site and has not yet been screened or released, you can submit a title correction, there you will be able to include the correct year and submit your request to our data editors.

Thanks Michelle,

I have looked for the title correction option, but I can't seem to find it. I can see how to submit a new title, but I know that's not correct. Can you perhaps send me the appropriate link.

Thanks for all of your help so far!

I'm not certain what title listing your trying to correct exactly, but if you go to the title page and scroll down to the bottom you will see a yellow "Edit Page" button.

Click on this and you will be redirected into the update form. Scroll to the bottom of the form and you will see a "Other Corrections" section, here you should see "Title Correction", within the drop-down to the right select to 'Add Correction' and click "Continue".



You will be redirected to the Title Correction Update form, see example below:



Here you will be able to enter your title with the correct year. You will also need to include an explanation for the change you are requesting. Click "Check These Updates" and continue the form instructions to submit your correction.

Michelle, I think you will find that doesn't work. Years need to be corrected through release date submissions.

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for your help so far. I've found the title page, but I'm still having trouble changing the year. Now it tells me I have to submit a release date to change just the year. However once I do this, I get the below message. Please advise:

Yes, my mistake (Thanks pbn!)

Please first submit a release date for the correct year of release, just click on the yellow "Edit page" button and you will be redirected into our Update form.

Scroll down to the "Basic Data" section of the form and you will see "Release Dates" with a drop-down menu, select "Add 1 item" from this drop-down. Continue the form instructions to enter your Release date data (country/date/other attributes) and submit your update.
