How many feature films were released worldwide in 2018? I know that about 869 movies were released in North America alone! I found a page labelled "Feature Film, Released between 2018-01-01 and 2018-12-31" on IMDB that states that 12,168 titles have been released but it doesn't say if this is worldwide! Does this number include shorts as well? Is this theatrical release and/ or direct-to-video?
