Usage[change source]

This template ({{movie date}}) returns auto formatting for use in the "released" parameter of {{Infobox movie}}. The template applies Category:Upcoming movies to movies unreleased and replaces it with [[Category:YYYY movies]], where YYYY is the year of first release, on the day of release. It also calls {{Start date}} for the first release date.

Syntax[change source]

  • {{movie date|year|month|day|location}}

This template allows up to five dates. No parameters are required. Please, however, indicate the year of release.
