Box Office Mojo Fate Uncertain; IMDb Remains Silent
BoxOfficeMojo.com has disappeared
IMDb has yet to speak out about the fate of Box Office Mojo, the data website it acquired in 2008. The site disappeared this morning and the web address now redirects to IMDb's box office page.
IMDb and parent company Amazon have not responded to emails requesting comment. It is uncertain whether the site, which was founded in 1999 by Brandon Gray and sold to IMDb in 2008, has been absorbed into the film credits database or is just temporarily unavailable.
The IMDb box office page still includes a link to Box Office Mojo, however that link has recently been updated to direct people to the Twitter account for Box Office Mojo instead of the website. The company also recently Tweeted that it's annual holiday box office predictions would be out in a few weeks, indicating that those running the site weren't anticipating a closure.
