This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: ATS: Add option for movies by release date independent of year (MM-DD)

Every film has the date it was released. I'd like to be able to see a list of what other films were also released on that day. We can already see births and deaths for a day.

You can refine the date search down to a specific day:

I like those search options but doesn't quite get to what I'm looking for. For example 'Big' was released June 3, 1988. I'd like to see all movies released on June 3rd whether it's 1903 or 2013. This seems to me it should be the same search as Born/Died date.

Ah right. It might be you can do this through Google, but it seems like a rather rare request (most obviously people might want to look up films released on the day they were born) that would require a change to the search engine.

It's a good suggestion particularly because release date pages already include links to dates.

Also implementing it would allow them to do an "on this day" feature, with movie releases, births and deaths.

This is exactly what I was looking for. As far as I can tell there is no place on the internet where this is possible. I'm trying to find out all the movies that came out on my birthday, not just the day I was born. I hunted down this site just to ask this question that was already addressed a year ago by someone else.

It would be nice to have IMDB, the place we go for all movie data, to allow us to search a single day across all years. That History Channel and others sites list film data with absolutely NO links to IMDB is sad. (WE LOVE OUR IMDB!) It there a way the search engine can be changed? A search like this is already done to find Actors with similar BIRTHDATES. We want to be able to do it with the DAYS OF RELEASE. ...and for TV shows while you're at it.
