Film data

All film-related metadata used in Letterboxd, including actor, director and studio names, synopses, release dates, trailers and poster art is supplied by TMDb.

themoviedb.org

Letterboxd uses the TMDb API but is not endorsed or certified by TMDb.

To correct inaccuracies in film-related data, please use the TMDb interface (you’ll need to create your own account there too). Changes to film data on TMDb will be visible in Letterboxd within six hours (as dictated by TMDb’s caching policy).

To import brand-new additions to TMDb immediately into Letterboxd, enter a URL in the following format (with the new ID) into your browser:

http://letterboxd.com/tmdb/27205

Replace the ID (27205) with any TMDb ID. Letterboxd will force a data import for films not already in our database, and then redirect to the film’s page.

If you spot duplicate pages for a single film on Letterboxd, use the Report function on the film page (look for the flag icon near the running time) and we’ll merge them into a single entry, preserving the likes, reviews and other activity associated with each page.

And Tyler Rosini created a Chrome extension to redirect from both IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes pages directly to the same film’s page on Letterboxd.
