Fix a release date bug

I noticed a discrepancy between the histogram by year on my stats page (http://letterboxd.com/merrabbit/stats) and my 2017 rankings list (http://letterboxd.com/merrabbit/list/2017-ranked). My stats page says I have watched 147 2017 releases, but my rankings list has 148 entries. When I noticed this, I went through my 2017 list to see if any release dates had been changed in the database, and I found You Were Never Really Here to be the culprit. However, it is not a simple release date change. If you go to the film's page on Letterboxd, it still says 2017 for the year, but if you hover over the poster when it appears in a list or on a browsing page, the hover-text says 2018.

I assume this mismatch is why this movie is not included in the page that comes up when I click the 2017 bin in my stats histogram (https://letterboxd.com/merrabbit/films/year/2017). At this point you would expect it to count towards my 2018 total instead, but bizarrely enough, it turns out it doesn't contribute to that bin either (https://letterboxd.com/merrabbit/films/year/2018).

I quickly checked out some other movies that have ambiguous release dates due to film festivals vs wide distribution (e.g. The Wife), but I didn't find any besides You Were Never Really Here that have this issue.
