Make a best-guess effort at a film title's release date.
This script leverages the excellent Open Movie Database (OMDb) library to figure out a film title's release date.
Returns zero and prints the year if the script can parse a release date, exits non-zero with an error message if something fails.
Pretty easy. Note that you need the modules listed in
requirements.txt, so get them installed however you like (usually
pip install -r requirements.txt.)
As a command-line script:
$ ./filmdate.py True.Grit.avi 2010
From within python:
>>> import filmdate >>> filmdate.year('The.Birds.mp4') u'1963' >>>
