How to use Siri to get information on a movie, director, actor, and more

  2. Say something like "Who directed The Avengers?" or "How many movies has Sandra Bullock been in?"
  3. If Siri finds more than one match to your query, you'll be asked to confirm which one you're talking about.
  4. Siri will then present the information you asked for.

Ask Siri who directed a movie

You can also ask Siri to search the web for additional information on specific movies, like filming locations and other bits of trivia.
