Prevent addition of films where the release date is years away
Some genious added many super hero films to imdb which are not due to be released until much much later. One has a release date set for 2019!? Prevent this kind of behaviour some way. Mission Impossible 5 has also already been on the site for many months yet no action has been taken (at least I flagged it when it was added). People are actually rating these too which distorts recommendations.
Thanks for the info. We need to build up our movie database management tools to address problems like this. Coming!

Allow the addition of movies (for wish lists) but prevent rating them until they near their release date.

this is actually a bad idea for me. watchlist is supposed to be for movies we want to watch or remember to watch when they are out.
i see that we can only add movies within 2 months of its release. you should go a bit higher. O, movies for 2020 is a bit to much, but for 2016 is useful in this case.
And another batch of 2017-2020 releases was just added...way to go!
Maybe you'll want to do something to this soonish?
