The display of genre has had a bug since today on IMDB French mobile version

Hi, I have noticed that there has been a bug on the IMDB mobile version in France (at least) since today. 

Indeed, the display of some genres is not correct for all the movies having this genre

If I go for instance on the movie « Backdraft » (1991), I should see the genres at the top of the mobile page. Till yesterday, it was: « Action », « Crime », « Drame » (« drama » in English), « Mystère » (« mystery » in English) and « Suspense » (« thriller » in English)

Since today, it has been: « Action » (ok, no change), « genre_Policier » (?), « genre_Drame » (?), « genre_Mystère » (?) and « Suspense » (ok, no change)

Why did you suddenly replace the « xxx » genres by a new « genre_xxx » ? And not for all genres on top of that

One of the consequences is that when you press the genre, there is 0 film indicated as similar


Usually, you have a lot of films proposed by IMDb as similar

On the desktop version, I see it in English and nothing has changed, so it seems limited to the French display of the mobile version

Can you please investigate, cos it impacts almost all the movies?

Thank you

Hi @mompart 

Thanks for your patience. You should find this issue addressed and fixed in the newest IMDb app update.

Hi, do you have any news for the resolution of the problem? Indeed, on the French version (at least) of the IMDB Smartphone app, the genre display is still bugged. We now have this « genre_xxx » (for instance « genre_Drame » instead of « Drame » before). It is not very beautiful to see and do not apply to all the genres (for instance « Action » is still « Action »). Here is a screenshot from today. It has begun since the 12th of February
