Missing Relesae Imformation on Summary Page

On the summary page of the release dates für the country Germany there are several dates, but most of the movies are missing.

For example:
On the movie-page of the movie "The Collini Page" (tt8739752) the release date for Germany is listed as 2019-04-18, but on the summary page for the country Germany the movie is missing, as you can see here

I want to see ALL the movies, that are released in Germany at a specific date (as stored in the IMDB). How can I get that summary?

Or another question: WHAT movies are shown on the summary-page, if not all that exists.

Some months ago, I suggested the same thing (but cannot trace it back) and got the same answer from Col Needham.

The more recent thread is https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/only-12-titles-showing-on-coming-soon and there are plans to fix this.

On the website there is a distinction between the Coming Soon and the Calendar pages. The calendar page has the list of countries to choose from. It also used to include all dates including those with festival attributes, etc.

Hi Peter,

I am not aware of these calendar pages. But I cannot spot them on the website home page. Any lead please?

OK, got it!

Movies, TV & Showtimes > Release Calendar

I never had the curiosity to browse these options... :)

I only wish the default country page was the one recorded in the Title display preferences.

Is there a "Coming Soon" Section for special countries?

Marco

This is where you find ALL upcoming movies in Germany AS KNOWN BY IMDb!
From what I notice, very few distributors outside the US make the effort to post the future release dates in advance on IMDb.
If you know the dates, you are welcome to add them!

Hi, Vincent:

I'm afraid Marco is right. As Col has confirmed, Release Calendar pages are filtered so titles don't flood the results.


Currently the only way to gather a complete listing of titles that were or (if date available) will be released at a specific date in a specific country is looking into the content of one of the extended dataset files (title.releases.tsv)...

E.g. GERMANY: Titles in calendar page [cal] vs Films with an available release date [tsv]
(on tsv, I'll exclude series, episodes, videogames and made for video/TV titles; only one release date per title is counted; if a title has more than one different release dates, complete dates prevail over partial dates and wide releases prevail over limited releases)

Hi ljdoncel,
Thanks for clarifying, I had not figured that out.

I noticed that there are more titles listed in the calendar pages (and in the app under Coming Soon) than before, but there seems to be a limit of 100 titles.

Since popularity stats still seem to be a parameter, there are still not many German films in the German list.
