Why can't the "Most Recent" trailers page ACTUALLY show the most recent trailers?

The "Most Recent" Trailers page has been constantly disappointing as it NEVER shows the most recent trailers, but just seems to be a dumping ground of almost every trailer from IMBD, domestic and foreign. Today the top three "most recent" movies include films from 2005 and 1997. 

Why can't IMDB seem to get this fixed? It's be going on for several years! The old movies also include foreign films from all eras and multiple copies of the same show (American Gods are listed 9 times in a row.).

For a site of this caliber and authority, it's pretty amazing that such a simple fix can't be accomplished.

Thanks for the feedback, however, the page is functioning as intended so there's no real issue to fix here, sorry.

The trailers listed on the main trailers landing page at https://www.imdb.com/trailers are the most viewed trailers on IMDb and this provides customers with an always up-to-date list of trailers which has a natural recency (yet popular) bias.  We recommend this page for your use case. 

The trailers on the "Most Recent" tab are the most recently uploaded trailers to IMDb as explained by the name of the tab.  We apply no filters for the recency of the release, only the recency of when the trailer was added to IMDb.  We are continually adding trailers (even for older releases) and this tab provides an unfiltered view of such trailers.  We see separately you have asked about filtering this tab by trailer language, which is a good idea so we recommend adding comments / support on this existing idea thread -> https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/recent-trailer-page

Hope this helps.
