Why do most films give the date they were first released in roman numerals?
Back then all people knew where roman numerals. So they used it as numbers to date when the movie will come out, are for something else. Today we use 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10,etc...........That's why it's impotant to know your roman numerals. I know all of mines.

To write a date in roman numerals, you must convert the month into its numeric equivalent (January = 1, February = 2...October = 10 etc.) Then you must decide which date format to use: MMDDYYYY or MMDDYY or DDMMYY or DDMMYYYY etc. I believe it is common to follow the MMDDYYYY format. When separating… each number group, you can use either a space, a dash or a period. Therefore, the date January 14, 2010 could look like I.XIV.MMX. Another way of representing the date so that there is no confusion between the month and the day is to show the month in latin: JANUARIUS, FEBRUARIUS, MARTIUS, APRILIS, MAIUS, JUNIUS, JULIUS, AUGUSTUS, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER. If you want to be as authentic as possible, Romans did not have the 'J' or 'U' in their alphabet so the months would look like: IANVARIVS, FEBRVARIVS, MARTIVS, APRILIS, MAIVS, IVNIVS, IVLIVS, AVGVSTVS, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER. The months can be shown in either upper- or lowercase. The months can be abbreviated to three letters followed by a stop, except for MART. and SEPT. In this format, January 14, 2010 could look like IAN.XIV.MMX or XIV.ian.MMX etc. ( Full Answer )

During the period of the Etruscan occupation and rule of Rome. shhshfuijuiehh sishusguhd hdhh udg used c jc hmn h j Roman numerals evolved over a long period, but are thought to have derived from the Etruscan tally-stick method of counting, However the Etruscans inherited from the Greeks, placing it… as early as the 8th century BCE. It is not known when the system we use today first came into use, however the Middle Ages saw a change in the notation that replaced D and M with modifications to their original symbols to allow a greater range of numbers (millions) than the standard notation permits (1-3999). This notation is seldom used, however, as Roman numbers are typically only used for values below 4000 (which is more than adequate to denote a year in the common era). Roman numerals were first used around the 4th century BC, although the system we're familiar with today didn't appear until around the 1st century AD. [EDIT: irrelevant to question] The numbers we use today (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) are called Arabic Numerals. They were first used by the Chinesse people of China long ago as 3000BC. Over time they were refined and the all important ' zero ' was developed. The Arabs were the bridge that brought this numbering system over to Europe from the 600's onwards. The earliest record we have of their use in Europe is in 976. Because the Europeans learn't of this system from the Arabs they became known as Arabic numerals. and this information is from copper ridge school in AZ...... :):):) People are not Barry nice ( Full Answer )

Roman numerals can still be found on such things as... clocks and watches, sundials, old mile stones, the dates in the credits of movies, dates in books, sequals of movies (Jurassic Park III etc), the names of chemical compounds (such as Iron (II) chloride), the regnal numbers of kings and queens (E…dward VI etc), and on some coins.

It's like it's 5 July 2005, it'll be 05/07/2005. If it's represented by Roman Numerals, then it'll be V/VII/MV. Improved Answer: 2005 = MMV in Roman numerals.
The Roman numerals for the numbers 1 through to 20 are as follows... I = 1 II = 2 III = 3 IV = 4 V = 5 VI = 6 VII = 7 VIII = 8 IX = 9 X = 10 XI = 11 XII = 12 XIII = 13 XIV = 14 XV = 15 XVI = 16 XVII = 17 XVIII = 18 XIX = 19 XX = 20

I'm gong to assume you mean February 17th, 2009. That would be a. d. XII Kal. Mar., MMIX (12 days before the first of March, 2009).
The first ten Roman numerals are as follows: 1 - I 2 - II 3 - III 4 - IV 5 - V 6 - VI 7 - VII 8 - VIII 9 - IX 10 - X Note that occasionally on clock-faces, the IV used to represent 4 is replaced by IIII. This is in order to give a clock the appearance of symmetry because the …4 is in a similar place to the number VIII (8) on the clock face. ( Full Answer )
1 = I, 2 = II, 3 = III, 4 = IV (or IIII) and 5 = V.

ok, this site will give you a fairly good explanation of how it's done. most people just translate directly but it doesn't quite work that way.. http://www.web40571.clarahost.co.uk/roman/calco1.htm
You can express February 1st as either 02-01 (which would be II.I) or as 01-02 (which would be I.II)
It is just a convention to write the date in Roman numerals. Perhaps when it was first done it was because the general public wouldn't understand them and would not therefore realise that a movie playing at a local cinema might in fact be several years old.
It was an Etruscan because the Etruscans first conceived this form of numeracy and they once ruled the Romans.

Contrary to popular belief the Romans did not invent the Roman numeral system but it was invented by the Etruscans who once ruled the Romans. The Etruscans were using these numerals, centuries if not for thousands of years before the rise of the Roman Empire.

In today's modern notation it is: XXVI-XII-MMIX However, the Romans themselves would have probably wrote out the number 2009 as MMVIIII which can be simplified to IMMX in the same way that the Roman numerals IIII and VIIII (4 and 9) are simplified to IV and IX respectively.
9 = IX 2 = II 2010 = MMX So, the roman numerals formatted as a date would be: IX/II/MMX
Today the first 50 Roman numerals are written as follows: Units from 1 to 9: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX Tens from 10 to 50: X, XX, XXX, XL, L To select a number first write down the tens followed by the units. Examples: 29 = XX+IX = XXIX and 48 = XL+VIII = XLVIII
Many people don't understand Roman numerals so movie makers use Roman numerals to disguise the fact in what year that the movie was actually released.
M=1000 C=100 X=10 L=50 On that premise... MCMXL would be 1000+(1000-100)+(50-10)=1940 Your answer is 1,940
We don't. We only write years in Roman numerals, such as MMXII for 2012. Dates are usually written using standard Arabic symbols, such as 25.12.2012. Some non-English countries such as Portugal, Italy and Romania (amongst others) use Roman numerals for the month and Arabic for the day and year, such… as 25. XII. 2012. ( Full Answer )
