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.

It would be great to have a Bluray releases alert so you know when your favorite movies are available.
Maybe even customized by director, actors or keywords, so you refine it to your taste, instead of having to manually pick them out.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Watchlist - IMDB needs to add a notification feature.

The Watchlist is a nice way to check up on upcoming films. However, since I don't often visit IMDB, I thought it would wonderful if a notification feature was added to remind me that a movie in which I'm interested is coming up for release soon. Amazon does this with authors, so I thought it would be an extremely valuable tool for those of us with Watchlist items. I would suggest that a week or two prior to a release, an automated email be sent to everyone who has that movie on their Watchlist.

I think IMDB app should sent notification whenever a movie/series on my watchlist is aired. I'm sure i'm not the only one adding movies to my watchlist months before they air and then forget all about them, so I think this would help many people.

It would be great if it was possible to receive (maybe e-mail) notifications about local release dates for movies added to watchlist (both when the release date becomes known and when that date comes)

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?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Quick suggestion to somehow make IMDB more awesome.

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?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Need ability to use watchlist, rating or "follow" button to receive reminders on....

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.
