Watchlist: Notifications when a title in your watchlist is released

If a movie is not yet released at the time of adding it to watchlist, then notifications should be given when the movie is released.

I would like to have get notifications about the movies I am watching. I am pretty busy so sometimes I forget to buy a ticket for a good seat in the cinema. I would like to receive notifications about the soon release of the movie and variants of seats in my local cinema.

Is there a way to simply be notified (perhaps an hour before) a tv show airs, and *not* be notified for anything else about the show?

I would love if you guys could implement a Reminder option for upcoming movies, perhaps positioned beside the Watchlist option?!

I miss new releases if I don't go to the cinema for a while or hear about a movie 1,2 or 3 years before the release.

Any variation would be brilliant, but may I suggest if added you could have a default of 1 week to remind users of the release (by email) and reminder preference could be modified by a '+' symbol or in user site settings?
Thank you for reading.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Movie distribution info in IMDB / net?.

A lot of movies don't premiere in theaters. And out of those which do, only a few end up in small countries like Finland..
Is there a place in the net where I could find info how to watch a movie I'm interested in? IMDB is my usual nr1 source of movie info, but it seems that it only introduces the date of premiere in theaters and some time in iTunes.
Is there another place where this necessary info is given in order to be able to watch some movie I've been waiting for for a long time? 
Or could this info be added into IMDB?

IMDb has many ways of knowing what information is interesting or relevant to their users, however it is not being used to feed updates on film release (cinema or bluray) or the start of a new season for series that have been rated by the user.

As an assiduous viewer of many series, I constantly have to visit the page of my favourite series to check when the new season will start or a film in my watchlist has been released.

There should be an option in the user account to receive reminder emails 1 week / 1 day before watchlist films will be released or before a new season of a TV series that was rated 7 or above by the user starts.

There should also be the option to obtain recommended new/upcoming films and series based on previous rating.

Finally, there should be an option to obtain recommended film / series recommendations based on the series that users whose ratings correlated most with oneself have rated 8 or more (i.e. recommended by peers with similar taste).

It seems to me the rating and watchlist information is underused. Through more data mining IMDb could add a lot of value for private users.

So far, the washlist seem sort of useless on the website, as there is no notifications when it becomes available (locally) in theather or DVD / Blurays

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Option to be emailed with 'Now Showing' from my Watchlist.

Hi. I have almost 500 movies on my watch list, most over 8/10, and I want to watch them all. But I find that some of the classic films are hard to get but they do come back to my local theatres (20 or so theatres around Sydney). 

Can you guys make a function that emails me a few days in advance when a movie that is on my watch list is showing at a local theatre? Seems pretty simple.

Thanks! :)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Is it possible to set reminder for tv series episode?.

I have a question but not sure this feature exist or not. Else would post it as an idea.

Question is:
1) I have seen a newly released trailer of  TV series. But It will be aired sometime next month or so. I have added it to my watchlist but is it possible to get some reminder as soon as tv show it is aired? 
Eg. I saw the trailer of The Strain on FX which is scheduled for July 16. Now I have added to my watchlist but I want a reminder as soon as the episode is aired. Preferably a day in advance so that I can make up my schedule.

I would love that feature.

2) Is there an option to add the movie release dates or tv show episode timings on my google calender so that I will get reminder from that as well.

Hope this feature is there or will be implemented soon.

With network and show premiere day and time printable from a watch list, it's possible to record shows to see if you want to watch them permanently. Without this information, the watchlist is very difficult to use with 250 new shows in 2013.

Perhaps a built-in calendar based off of our watch lists could be fun. Keeping track of all of the releases in a year can be cumbersome. If not a built-in calendar, maybe a way to add the release to our own calendars in Gmail or other email services?

I know there are a few calendar oriented suggestions floating around but I didn't see one like this. Sorry if I missed a previously posted suggestion or a feature that is already available.

I also know there are various calendar/ release like pages on the site but none offer a type of calendar view. They are all list like as opposed to a calendar view. Like the New to Own, In Theaters, and Coming Soon pages as well as http://www.imdb.com/calendar.

What would really be great is an easily accessible calendar feature where you could choose different things to look at. You could have a drop down menu to choose what you wanted to see. Things like movie releases, series premieres, series finales, new on tv, birthdays, new to buy, etc.
