INTRODUCING: Updated IMDb.com homepage experience



The new homepage is designed to help IMDb customers find what to watch right now, tonight, or this weekend — and where to find the best movies and TV shows for them, whether in theaters, on TV, or across a variety of streaming services (including IMDb TV, Prime Video, HBO, Starz, Showtime, Acorn TV, and PBS). Customers will benefit from a new recommendation engine that leverages implicit and explicit behavior to offer relevant and timely suggestions.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Whatever happened to the Classic IMDB of a few years ago?.

You used to be able to type in an actors name or a movie title and be directed to IMDB which provided background information, acting credits, trivia, and even personal (marriages etc.) in varying degrees of depth depending on the length of an actors career.  It was quick, easy & free for a casual fan of TV, movies and actors and actresses who liked to know more about these people who made an impression through their various roles over the years.  That Classic IMDB has vanished.  If it's still available I'd like to know where to find it.  I feel like Rip Van Winkle who has just woken up and "I'm not in Kansas anymore"!

Nelson Haffner, 
Just because the homepage changed doesn't mean the whole site is gone. The search box is still there, and still works great to do what you described. I certainly use it that way.

I've removed the home page from the tabs that open when I launch Chrome. I've put a bookmark for the Search Bar page on my bookmarks toolbar, and that's how I use IMDB these days, only when I need to look something up. They've completely lost my daily views with their abysmal redesign. I wonder how many people have done the same and what this means to their page traffic.

Why are the same post sometimes shown twice on the homepage?



Reloading the page will fix it, but it comes back again after a couple of reloads.

This may be due to my advancing age but it seems like the opening page of IMDb, with the black background and white text, is becoming increasingly hard to read.

I'm 71 years old and not everything in my body works the way they used to, but it seems like this has gotten much more difficult in the last while.

You'll need to specify what platform you're using. The search option on desktop is not hidden:

Well we all knew it was coming, but looks like it has infected title pages as well.
