IMDb Celebrating Its 20th Anniversary with A-List Interviews
It's hard to believe, but the invaluable resource that's settled many bets and helped bolster the sanity of the moviegoing public by helping you find the name of "that one guy in that one movie" is already celebrating its 20th Anniversary. IMDb (part of Amazon) is kicking off their "IMDb 20" celebration with original video interviews with various A-list talent each day leading up to the official anniversary on October 17th. This big countdown and a companion editorial section is meant to celebrate the films of the past 20 years. Users will be invited to create their own Top 20 film lists via IMDb’s just-launched list-making tool. Read on!
Writer/director Kevin Smith succinctly sums up why we all love this amazing resource:
"IMDb saved me an insane amount of time in my life. I think of every fight I ever got in with somebody who just didn’t have a crucial piece of movie information at their fingertips. I said one thing. They said another. Loggerheads. Relationships destroyed. IMDb comes along and just immediately solves that. It’s an insanely useful tool. I hit it everyday. It’s my homepage. Because that’s my stock in trade. That’s my currency. What I speak is movies."
The first interview kicking-off IMDb 20 appropriately comes from The Social Network producers Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti. As the days go on, more celebrities will show up every single day for an exclusive video interview with IMDb in which they discuss personal topics pertaining to film, including favorite films, performances, lines of movie dialogue, roles they would have liked to play and much more. Be sure to check out the homepage for IMDb 20 everyday to check out the latest interview, 20th anniversary lists, 20 years of trailers and more. And of course, join us in celebrating 20 years of avoiding fights with all our movie-loving friends.
