Sadly, Freebase has been made "read only" March 31st 2015. Alternatives are: https://www.themoviedb.org/ Actively maintained by a large community and used by a broad range of apps under a propriatary license that states free use: TMDb is committed to free and open access to our APIs for commercial and non-commercial purposes. However, providing the APIs ...

Also, the API at The Movie Database looks great. It is less clean than IMBD, but it is open and free for use. Edit: this metastor repository has a dump of TMB

I don't have an answer but your request reminds me of a Slate.com article about characters shared scenes in Friends. The journalist explained his method: To determine which characters shared scenes, I downloaded transcripts of all 236 episodes from this remarkably comprehensive fan site. For the purposes of this inquiry, I treated these transcripts as ...

Try these screenplay datasets: http://www.imsdb.com/ http://www.simplyscripts.com/ http://sfy.ru/ http://script-o-rama.com/table.shtml http://dailyscript.com/ But, perhaps, you may use subtitles to train only talks: http://opensubtitles.org/ http://subscene.com/

There is the Internet Movie Script Database (IMSDb) where you can view movie scripts online. You might be able to download enough pages to train your bot. Alternatively, there's also OpenSubtitles, which is a collection of film subtitles that you might be able to use. These look like they're in a format meant to be used while watching a film, so you might ...

Have you taken a look at http://www.imdb.com/interfaces which includes a link to FTP mirrors where you can get data files that can presumably be joined in a RDBMS or other type of database system. Files you probably want to investigate are actors.list.gz, movies.list.gz, and release-dates.list.gz Hope this helps!

Check out Wolfram Alpha API for things like: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=academy+awards+1998 This is the free (public) interactive form interface. You can get a download as raw data with a Pro Subscriber (paid) license.

I'm not sure about the licensing but it's at least called a "free"base: http://www.freebase.com/film/film

Hmm I don't know if you could find something for a commercial use. But here are a few suggestions. 1) imdb if you do not want to play with api, you can download all the database. But not for commercial use. 2) An alternative api for movie database rotten tomatoes 3) An alternative api for movie database anditson Since you need a commercial use, read very ...

I haven't seen any evidence of an API or official data set. AggData.com has a CSV of Oscar winners from 1927-2010. Actually, they have two (see also this, which are similar but not the same. Both cover the same years and have the same row count, but I notice what looks like some CSV quoting issues from a little poking with csvkit. Also, frustratingly, the '...

The Cinemetrics database actually does have historical data from more than 14,000 movies dating from 1899 and the screen time for a variety of actors and actresses in these movies. You just need to look at this view of the database. However, for many movies, the focus is on the length of the shots, rather than the screen time for the actors. Additional ...

The dataset is not available, it could be useful in several projects and this Sunday evening was boring: three good reasons to scrape this site. Here is the file. It contains the nominees and the winners from 1970* to 2016 (two sheets). Before merging both, I would prefer that someone take a look at it to check the data quality. * I wonder why the ...

1) I would like to point you to a dataset and an API that provides IMDB information. Here are some queries to get the information from your example, and to show you what kind of data to expect from the dumps. Get the imdb_id (generic) of a movie, given the movie's name: You can either query for that information like shown or download one of: a) The ...

About the TV shows I know a great site (eztv) with a list of airplay, info, trailers etc, but I cannot find anywhere about copywrite. Maybe you can contact with them and ask them about it. Link: https://eztv-proxy.net/showlist/

From https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Jobu0101: One of my goals is to represent the Academy Awards completely in Wikidata. Each person, film, song, production company needs an item. Each nomination and award has to be represented in Wikidata. Most of the work was done until the Oscars 2016. This SPARQL query retrieves all the data about the ...

Yes, there is. Try Cinemalytics - The Bollywood Movie Database. They provide free RESTful APIs to access database. This can be used for commercial use as well.

You can refer to Cinemalytics Bollywood Movie APIs. Its free and is community driven, plus you can use it for commercial purpose as well. They also have Songs & Singers information linked with the movies data. Check out their API showcase for Bollywood Movies here.

If anyone else comes across this thread looking for a JSON of Oscar Best Picture winners, I've created a basic one for a mini project I'm working on which you can use as a starting point: const bestPictureWinners = [ { "name":"Wings", "releaseYear":"1927", "seen":false }, { "name":"The Broadway Melody", "releaseYear":1928, "...

Have a look at the Netflix Challenge dataset. Netflix wanted to find a better recommendation algorithm, so it will certainly contain what you're looking for.

I'm an Emmy voter, an Open Data nerd, and a web developer -- and I don't know of a source. Guess you're going to have to scrape the data, sorry.

The IMDB data dump contains theater release dates (warning, 46MB file): ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/pub/misc/movies/database/release-dates.list.gz An example: Unfortunately this is only cinema releases, and won't include TV showings or DVD releases. To get TV releases, the data source will probably be TV-specific.

You might find the MovieLens Datasets helpful. Here's how they describe the structure of their ratings data file: All ratings are contained in the file ratings.csv. Each line of this file after the header row represents one rating of one movie by one user, and has the following format: userId,movieId,rating,timestamp The lines within this file are ordered ...

You can try the omdb at http://omdbapi.com/ It doesn't download in bulk but you can easily write a script for your choice of titles.

Step 1: Write a scraper to build a repository of .torrent files or magnet links. You can also use the magnet-hashes from TPB. Or convert a .torrent file to a magnet-link. Step 2: Pass those magnet-hashes to a script that retrieves the seeder/leecher stats. An example is here. Step 3: Repeat step 2, as many times and as often as possible. Step 4: ...

A question like this was asked on Stack Overflow a few years ago. Besides TheMovieDB (which was the accepted answer), and OMDB, which you've found, people suggested the Rotten Tomatoes API, which appears to have posters, but which also looks like it's integrated into OMDB...

As was alluded to in one in a comments you should check out http://www.imdb.com/interfaces which would allow you to either download manually via ftp or through a terminal interface. I am pretty sure the restrictions on the data only pertain to commercial usages but you should verify that before diving in head first. Also, you could check out http://www....
