I hope Elizabeth Warren breaks up Box Office Mojo and IMDB.

Some of it is a much needed update. Most of it is trash and impossible to navigate. I'm sure we'll all get used to it... but lord. The reason I kept using it over the other sites was because it was laid out easily. Now it wants you to go to multiple pages to get to what you want. Gross.

I hope they get a lot less traffic and have to shut down. It's awful. And without theater counts there's not much of a reason to go there except for release dates. I'll use The Numbers for my other Box Office needs.

I guess The Numbers will be the big winner of BOM's re-design and paywall policy for some of the stuff...

Nobody wanted a sequel to the comingsoon.net reboot.

I'm worried about someone coming up with a brilliant idea of implementing paywalls. I can't tell what if anything boxoffice related is behind the paywall.

Also, I wish I could click say, Force Awakens, and see the related Showdowns, boxoffice records, etc.. One place, no need to go to multiple pages. 

If I go to Force Awakens and then All-Time rankings....I'm getting nothing.

Massive downgrade. The new site is almost unusable. Ugh. This was inevitable though.

Yikes. May as well just call it imdbboxoffice.com

RIP the real BOM era

Of course Amazon owns IMDB.com. Of course. Trump or whoever succeeds him: anti-trust laws NOW! Break UP Jeff Bezos' empire NOW!

Also this is IMDB's address:
535 Terry Avenue North
Seattle, WA 98109-5210

Which they try to keep hidden. Just in case anyone wants to complain in person. I'm still not over them deleting the BOM forums. They deserve bed bugs for life for doing that.

Post Re: How do you like the new Box Office Mojo?
At first I thought; these changes couldn't be that bad...

.. but after updating my 'box office' database, the updated Box Office Mojo site is a tragedy to put it mildly. I've been a follower of box office data since 1997 (first through Mr. Showbiz, Showbizdata) and I believe in 1998 with BOM, but this is a downgrade.

There are a lot of errors with the yearly (annual grosses, missing titles, incorrect numbers, etc). It has become unusable. It’s surprising that this update took them so long, especially after the closure of the BOM forums (BOT doesn’t even come close), but what’s the most optimum and perfect alternative? For me, The Numbers was pretty much second choice but it lacks complete/correct and international data.

"The rep added that the site is now easier to navigate, and that "these updates were made in response to customer feedback and usage patterns, which will continue to inform future feature launches."

:noway:
Customer feedback would not result in this incomplete and total mess.

The usual concrete mask stating vague content under which they hidden.

This new version is worth a place in jail.

Does anyone know what numbers are now behind the pay wall?

If it ain't broke - don't fix it. Unfortunately we'll have to live with it and most likely we'll get used to it and move on.

I do like the layout of the release schedule however. They just need to put back the releasing studio and wide/limited notations.

I helped Brandon Gray with troubleshooting the original Mojo back in 2002-2003. It's come a loooong way since then. Surprised it lasted this long after the IMDB acquisition before a major overhaul. The new site is a downgrade but still fine. My concerns are really with what happens tomorrow with that paywall. Someone may have the bright idea to start with monetizing the Showdowns then the All-Time lists. I'm still unclear on what you get with imdbPro.

I think The Numbers will be my new go-to for box office numbers. This merger with IMDB just made new barrier to access to information.
