Title pages — new version available for sneak peek

IMDb is working on updates to the Title page. The new version of the page is mobile-responsive, meaning all features are available on devices of all sizes, and has a modern look and feel — otherwise it maintains all the functionality of the current page, though some features have moved on the page.

The new version of the page is available to a limited group of fans during a beta period. During the beta, some features are still under construction, and you may encounter bugs.

UPDATE: now available!

Section "More like this" no longer appears in the films' view

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled How can I see the "More like this" section again?

Use the link at the top of the title page to revert back to the old version.

Showing the number of episodes below the actor/actress' name in series maybe considered as spoilers as it may reveals a death of a character due to 1 or 2 episodes less than others.

#episodes is not new to this design.

Still a valid suggestion for an improvement, though.

Yes but @bderoes  #episodes is far off to the right in the original design... one can scan the cast list on the left without the #episode count being "in your face".

I strongly prefer the prior version of the cast list, with actor names in one column, character names in the next, and episodes to the side. I do NOT like to zig-zag when I'm looking for who played character X.

First Impression - I think the improvement is okay,  the only real issue I can see for now is the credit list. I preferred it as a simple and professional list and not a bunch of icons clustered together.

Like others have noted, this new update is terrible and attempts to fix things that do not need to be fixed. Please reconsider the changes. Thank you.

Under "more like this" section, could you please put back the genres under each film. As a title and rating are not enough for finding new films of interest. To me, the genres under the "more like this" are essential.

Please allow desktop users the ability to keep a "condensed mode" or option like that, as where info was shown before, you now need an extra click on an "I" and wait for the info to be loaded, then presented, as if desktop users had the same little screen real estate as mobile and tablet users, and therefore have the need for extra information to be hidden and the user needs to expand it.

Allow me to respectfully decline the offer. Keep the old view. And allow me to remove that suggestion of yours by including an x. I checked it out and I don't want it, but it still keeps asking me if I wanna try it. Thanks, but no thanks.

I AM NOT IN FAVOR OF YOU LIMITING COMPANY INFORMATION TO SIMPLY THE PRODUCTION COMPANY.  YOUR LEGACY VERSION ALSO LIST THE DISTRIBTORS((S), INFORMATION THAT I LIKE TO TRACK AND FOR WHICH DO NOT WANT PAY FOR FROM IMDB PRO.  WHAT EARTHLY REASON DO YOU HAVE FOR ELIMINATING THIS INFO IN THE NEW VERSION?  PLEASE RECONSIDER THIS IDIOTIC DECISION!!!!

@Tom No company information has been removed here, sorry. For example, on https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6141246/ click the ">" at the end of the production companies line to reach https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6141246/companycredits ... this is the same as clicking the "See more" link on the old design.

OK.  I went back to the sample page I looked at this morning.  On my first perusal of the new format, the screen shows PRODUCTION COMPANY printed in black and a Single Company Name printed in light blue (in this case Blumhouse Productions.  I assumed that was the link to click on & when I did so, a listing of all of Blumhouse's prior productions was revealed but no information about Distributors  After getting your memo, I went back to the same page. This time I hovered over all of the categories in Black. Some of which are hyperlinked and some are not.  When i hovered over PRODUCTION COMPANY, I could see that it was hyperlinked, so I clicked on it, and sure enough, the Distributor info was revealed., so you're right, the info is still there, but your page construction is not intuitive and I still think it's clunky.  Bottom line, though, is the info I want is still there, so I'll leave well enough alone!!

Given all the dreadful vertical space that is wasted in the new format, if you know you want Company info, you might want to use the All Topics menu near the top of the page (akin to the More link in the prior format.)

I agree that these lines together communicate that Pro is the place to find more companies:

Hello

I would just like to say that the production year of the movie should be right next to the title, like it was in the old page version. It's a pretty important piece of information and shouldn't be in the line below, with a font 3 clicks smaller...

Thank you

Movie / series year should be next to the title name. 


Such as:

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Please let me be able to copy all the Categories at once like before (Thriller, Drama, War). Please let me be able to save the Poster (Save Picture as). Not always is newer better. Thanks. AD Switzerland

Aart, can you provide an example where you cannot copy all the genres?

On this title, I can do that, but it only has 3.

Personally, since the Front Page changed to the new look I avoid it. It's ugly, it has less information, it makes it harder to find data, it looks ugly.

I was afraid when that change was coming to the title pages. Looking at the preview, it is not as bad as I expected. But having the cast in circles instead of a list, and the black background at the top are things I don't like. And hope don't stay.

The rest I can get used too, but as I once proposed, It would be great if the User polls appeared above User Lists. The polls are a feature for everyone and allow users to participate. The lists are often personal and of no interest beyond the author.

It looks clean af, so much better than the one currently in use. I do, however, think that it could use an option to view the page in dark mode. I would simply like that color more bc it's easier on the eyes, Other than that it's pretty much perfect.

I love the layout but think there should be an option for a darkmode. (I typed out way more about how I really like the new layout but it deleted everything when I created an account, alas: what you see is what you get).

Further Impressions

GALLERY - The title page gallery should include still images, event images and production art, as the previous versions did. That diversity on the title page would make it more interesting.

TRIVIA/QUOTES/CREDITS - Don't use only the most popular ones, allow alternating between them on a periodic basis. Again, diversity. 

VIDEO/PHOTO LINKS - The title page has two links for video and photos. I think just one of each will suffice.
