BoxOfficeMojo.com has vanished with the site redirecting to Amazon.com’s IMDb.

The Box Office Mojo site was acquired by Amazon in late 2008. Reps for Amazon were not immediately available for comment.

The Box Office Mojo site was widely used by the movie industry for up-to-date box office results along with historical data. It was founded in 1999 by Brandon Gray.

When Box Office Mojo was acquired in 2008, it was operated in a Los Angeles office by Gray and Sean Saulsbury.

IMDb provides cursory coverage of box office data, leaving out such information as the specific distributor, the number of theaters and international grosses. Its subscription-based IMDb Pro subscription site has slightly more information.


It does point to IMDB now. I guess it's probably too premature to consider it dead... but Ken, if a website does totally die off can you do something easy to remove all "dead" profile links to those servers?

Allrovi is a long dead site for instance, but still in numerous profiles.

Interesting, maybe the outcry online caused Amazon to think twice.
