The Blog is Back!

August 27, 2013

Wow, time really flies, doesn't it? Here we are, 2 years and 3 months later and we're finally getting around to writing another blog post. 

So, how've you been? Seen any good movies? We're super excited about all the great things you've been doing with the Tomatometer, and hope it's been helping you pick out movies that you love. We would be delighted to hear about how you've been using our API. Drop us a line, send us a link and tell us how it's going!

If you have any questions/requests/suggestions/movie recommendations, don't forget to hit up our forums.

Happy Hacking!

Rotten Tomatoes API Now Live!

May 27, 2011

You asked for it -- and here it is!  

On behalf of the entire engineering team here at, I'm proud to announce the launch of our first ever public API!

The API allows developers to access the industry's most trusted metric for movie freshness - the tomatometer -- for our entire catalog of movies.  To get things started, we're publishing our most requested APIs for movies and tomatometer scores in RESTful JSON format.  Access top box office movies, cult classics or anything in between -- and help movie fans discover great movies.

We're excited to see what you'll build with our APIs. Registerhack, and let us know what you'd love to see next - we're eager to hear your feedback.
