Box Office Mojo Disappears and Mysteriously Returns


Box Office Mojo returns after the website disappeared yesterday morning.

The movie industry website Box Office Mojo is back up just one day after the website was redirecting to parent site IMDb.com

Box Office Mojo website had been shut down, and was sending users to the box office page on the movie database website. Reps for Imdb.com have not responded to questions or comments. There also has been no official word or message on why the redirect occured.

Box Office Mojo was acquired by IMDb in 2008 and on Friday it appeared as though the website was absorbed by IMDb, which is owned by Amazon.

Rumors as to why the movie website disappeared circulated around the Internet over the weekend. But, at the time of its sale, Box Office Mojo said it would remain a standalone company. Box Office Mojo is a critical tool for movie industry executives in Hollywood who look to the site for real time box office results and comparative data. It was founded in 1999 by a three person company located in Los Angeles.

IMDb has a wide collection of data regarding movies, but it is currently lacking detailed information on box office metrics. It is not known whether IMDb plans to incorporate the Box Office Mojo data into its system. However, the layout for Box Office Mojo is set up only for an in-depth look at box office metrics, while IMDb is based for fans, audience members, and trailers.
