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!

Some notes after switching to new design almost instantaneously and using it for several months:

-The absence of normal hyperlinks in many of the areas is somewhat confusing;

-It takes more time to scroll through the page; 

-It took me quite some time to discover "All topics" button;

-In my humble opinion attributes on languages and color are necessary to display on the title pages to prevent confusion and misguided edits, especially considering I am unable to find whether attributes for languages are even available without accessing the edit mode;

-Random glitch sometimes switches to mobile version of IMDb (m.imdb.com) when accessing some areas.

The whole new setup is totally a waste of time. There was nothing wrong with the way it's always looked. I still don't see any reason to change everything.  Wake the hell up!

I don't see Critic Reviews, only User Reviews. Will this be added back?

@sheilaberke Critic reviews are there, on the right, under the watchlist:

Its been 3 months and it still looks like some dumb down smartphone app. Nothing has changed based on our feedback.

I found I immediately missed the coloured box around the metacritic score — is there any way we can get that, rather than just the small number tucked away in the corner?

Sorry to IMDB staff if this sounds too critical, as I'm not wanting to come across as snide here.  But I do feel we need a method to impress the disappointment of many long-committed users.

@TM1698, you'll need to be much bolder about your your suggestions.  This entire layout is a disaster.  They insist on making things like photos dominate, while hiding useful information -- or they've screwed up the formatting so badly, you can't find what you're scanning for.

Personally, I put more stock in the opinions of 1,000 randomly selected people from the El Paso phone book than professional critics.

Having said that, I agree with the above sentiments - for those interested in the film's Metacritic score, the info is so extremely hard to find that I think even someone with @Tsarstepan's level of diligent observational skills is likely to miss it.

I use this site a lot to identify cast members in some TV shows and movies. In the old version the cast list is on the main page of the episode. In the new version you have to click to another page to get the cast list. I would prefer to get both the cast list and other episode info on one page rather than having to click back and forth between two pages.

I use this site a lot to identify cast members in some TV shows and movies. In the current version the cast list and other info are all on the same page. In the new version you have to click to a different page to get the cast list. I would prefer to get both the cast list and other episode info on one page without having to click back and forth.

@spiritchaser Thanks for the feedback, however, we are not aware of any changes in this respect.  Please can you share a few example links to episodes to illustrate the issue?

As a counter example, we have highlighted the cast list on episode 1 of WandaVision @ https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9601584/ here:

My mistake. I had the zoom setting too high. Once I zoomed out the entire cast list was available.

The new update make some names disappear from the side. Actors and more info will be hidden, by the new layout.

Like the list of actors on His Dark Materials. To see all the actors, the list on the top disappear from the screen.

The background image too big, and steal the space, it looks like.

Btw, I use mostly mobile, but always in fullweb. Checked the page on laptop and the same issue there too.

Click on "see full cast", and some names is behind the layout, as on His Dark Materials.

Also the background take too much space, and is not so much needed, for text. It was better before. Hope to see it as it was.

P. S. I did some mistake on my first post earlier today, so I deleted the first one, and added it here again. So just merge my post where it was merged earlier. 

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled List of actor disappear on Imdb

After i click on "see full cast", it was first from Will Keen and down on the list. Then a few seconds later, it jumped to Cristela Alonzo and Will Keen and above was not visible anymore. 

My mobile is an Huawei P30 Pro, and have the Emui version 11.0.0. My laptop have Windows 10. And the same issue is on both. I think the background is the cause of the issue.

Saw this link you posted here, and I don't use mobile web, only fullweb elsewhere, and with Imdb other times. But also on a laptop, I can't see the mobile web at all, of obvious reasons.

So if I forget I have to go back to less text on my screens, to use mobile websides, I must check the actors and crew on other web sides. Hope this issue won't take months to be fixed.

We want the compact design to stay.
The new design its ok, but only for touch screen device users. On PC, the new design its too big and spacious around every object.
Dont force the new design on us and, like the front page, and let us keep the compact design mode. (or maybe minimally remake the compact design with proper dark mode)

FAR TOO MUCH spacing.  TOO MUCH SCROLLING.  Not enough CONTENT for all the scrolling.  You took away the density of CONTENT and let the visual stylists take over and win.  I don't care if the page is more pretty, I come here to read CONTENT and LOOK UP INFORMATION.

One good thing is the dark background.  All else is a negative.

You are spot on on everything. :-) We don't need everything to be big or giantic. We don't need everything to look "just as pretty as Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo", and fancy with lots of stuff crammed together. As long as the site is simple and quick to use, and doesn't require too much scrolling, then we're fine with it. If anyone wish to use the new version, then it's fine, but let many of us others use the old page like we've been doing in years now.
