Optimise Backgrounds for films/Better connectivity with TMDB
TMDB has tons of entries with backgrounds but they seldom transfer across to here, even when they've been added with the creation of the entry of the film. Also, just out of curiousity, how long does it take to transfer from TMDB to here? I put a few entries up on Thurs and they haven't come across yet.
We add backdrops manually for films based on the film’s popularity. An automated process doesn’t really work for this—we prefer to make aesthetic decisions about which backdrops work best in the space available.
If you have specific requests for great-looking images we’ve missed, please post them in comments here and we’ll see what we can do.
