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.

To check it out, click here.

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.

Known issues:

  • Showtimes, if available in your region, are not yet present within "Watch options".

UPDATE: now available!

  • Recently viewed
  • Related News
  • Awards & Top 250
  • More like this
  • Character” links are now included in the Cast section.
  • The Episodes section now includes a link to all top-rated episodes for TV series.

For more information, check out this Help article. To report bugs or issues, contact us.

Create an account just to post how awful the new design is.

  • Forced to have black as the upper part of the page
  • The top half takes up so much space that you have to scroll down so far just to see the cast
  • The new cast layout is very awkward to read ( stick to tabular format )

Guess I'll be switching to another site if this goes live as is

Is there going to be the option switch back to a light theme? I like the dark theme on mobile, but prefer light on the desktop.

@Karen_P Wait, they alternate? I haven't noticed that at all. I really wonder what are the mechanics behind that.

@Karen_P No confusion there, that's exactly how I understood it. 

It's just... Slightly weird if they alternate randomly from title to title.

@Karen_P My first version was the type, but no, that doesn't seem to be the case. Odd.

Hi - the black background referenced is due to Hanna having an Enhanced IMDb page

O, well, in the case of enhanced IMDb title pages, the color scheme and decorations can vary wildly, as in being red, blue, green, gray, black or rainbow/kaleidoscope colors. Often there are posters or banners for background images.

Before you even consider switching to new "grose" look PLEASE, PLEASE keep a way to access the old version as an option in "account settings" or maybe in the url like classic.imdb.com.

Please add an option in account settings to disable dark mode.

Thanks in advance!

After a movie's main page is loaded, my rating for that specific movie takes 3 or 4 seconds to show up. Because of this issue, you often miss that if you watched that movie or not.

Current version is designed for non-mobile devices (PC, Mac, stationary, laptop), typically used in homes.

New version is developed for mobile use (smartphones, tablets) on-the-go.

IMDB has chosen to 'sacrifice' one of the two user groups with the new design. Thats a totally failed integration, and a misconstrued interaction design task.

Bad, bad, bad. With this faliure, movie lovers with a Home Theatre, big or small, will have no problems finding alternatives for collecting data...

Sad, really.

I do not like the new IMDb home page. Is there a way to go back to the original home page?

MAHHA GOGO - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061300/

The main title page is unable to load past the main items at the top. There is even a message saying the page can't load. Please fix this as soon as possible.

Further thoughts on the title page:

- The date is in two separate places, at the top and bottom. That's not very practical. It can work out for TV features maybe, but films require the full date be provided and maybe only one location is needed for that. 

EXAMPLES SEEN: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13799986/ , https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0217579/ 

- The plot outline for episodes can't always appear fully on the main page. And they are absent from recommendations, which spoils the concept somewhat as it can't raise interest. 

EXAMPLES SEEN: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13196080/, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13758670/
