ATS: Add option for movies by release date independent of year (MM-DD)

I proposed this in the Advanced Search Updates thread (, but Col Needham asked me to propose it as a separate idea, so here goes.

Following the addition of a possibility to search for people by birth date alone (independent of year, in a MM-DD format), I'd like to see a similar addition to the title search. Many years ago the "on  this date" lists used to have lists of movies released on that date in addition to people being born on that date, and since it was removed I've missed the feature ever since.

It would be a useful addition to the advanced title search to search for titles released on a specific date, without the constraint of a specific year, for instance to see all movies released in USA on January 13 (today) of any year. I'd suggest this to be a two-field addition; one for a specified date, in the MM-DD format, and one drop-down menu (or a list) to specify if it is to be a global search (all movies released on that date, anywhere) or a specific country.

I want to see movies released in America every day in history. I see that on each film's page they have the specified date that film was released in the USA, but I don't know how to search for every film released on a single day through history. (IE January 26, then I'd get a list of all the films released on that day through history) Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

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.
