New search results page?

I'm seeing a different format and content for search results when using the search feature at the top of every IMDb page (desktop format).

Is it true that the option for Exact Title Matches does not appear unless an exact match is available?

I like the other search options being present on the right panel.

Did I miss a Sprinklr announcement for this? I can't seem to find one.

Can I return to the previous results display?

I'm not aware of any official announcement, although @Col_Needham discussed it in response to my post here:

Keyword Searches: IMDb has changed its display format for search results

Overall, two thumbs down from me on the new search system specifically for keywords. I have been discussing the problems in those other threads.

As for basic "All" searches, I agree with you that the new options on the right side are good.

However, those options on the right side seem to have taken the place of additional options that used to be at the bottom of the screen with the old "All" search, and that would actually show some sample search results at the bottom of the screen. This was particularly useful for picking up one or two keyword results in an "All" search. That functionality has now been taken away.

p.s. There was also this comment from @Col_Needham today.
