I'm trying to update a title page for my production. I need to update the year from 2012 to 2013 in the actual TITLE ITSELF. Please advise.

Sue: The year in parentheses after the title is determined by the film's earliest release date. (You can't change the year after the title via a Title Correction -- it has to be changed by changing the Release Date.)

What release date is currently shown for this production? Have you submitted a 2013 release date for it?

Thanks for the quick reply! We did just change the release date to 2013, along with some other changes—I assume it takes a while for these changes to be updated, yes?

Curious - on your page it's showing as 2013 (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1124259/), but on the title's page it's showing as 2012 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2580864/). Changes typically take a couple days to make their way through all the different IMDb page types/views - I guess this one is on its way now.

I believe the routine that checks changed/new Release dates and modifies the Title Year is separate from the main update, and that it is not necessarily run every day; so it may take up to a week after the Release Date is changed for the change to occur to the Title Year.

Thanks! Let's hope it reconciles, as we'd like for all pages to reflect the 2013 date. Appreciate your help.
