Finding the difference between 2 dates and iterating an image based on the difference

Ive managed to loop through a table and get the difference in days between 2 dates adjacent to each other in the table.

Multiple entries have the same date, i have it now that when that date changes, it displays an image however i want it to display the image as many times as the difference in date

$sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM Films_Info") 
or die(mysql_error());

$last_value = null;

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($sql)) {

if (!is_null($last_value)) {
$a = new DateTime($row['FilmRelease']);
echo "<p>".$row['FilmName']."</p>";
$interval = $a->diff(new DateTime($last_value));
//echo $interval->format('%d days');
$i = 0;

$howManydays = $interval->days;

for ( $i; $howManydays; $i++) {
echo "<img src=\"day.jpg\" />";
$howManydays = 0;


$last_value = $row['FilmRelease'];
