The option to sort by release dates for other countries would really make the watchlist useful for anyone who wants to keep track of upcoming movies, not living in the US. As it is, since the US release dates often bear no relation to the rest of the world, it might as well sort the list randomly.

I support this idea. I live in the Netherlands so I would like to sort my watchlist by Dutch release date. The Dutch release date is already shown on the movie's page because I set my Title display country to "The Netherlands" in Site Settings > general site preferences.

All IMDB has to do is add a new selectbox option for sorting the watchlist and use the Title display country. The selectbox for sorting the watchlist would then have these options:

Sort by:
- List order
- Title A-Z
- US release date
- [Title display country] release date
- # ratings
- IMDB rating
- Your rating
- MOVIEMeter
- Date added
