There is a serious problem with movie posters.
Since today, movies started to show unaccurate posters for differents films around the world. I have my settings on:

Title display country/region: Original

I realized perhaps you are doing some kind of test, so I tried to find a proper option for

Title display language

But there is no "original" option.
I selected the blank space, does it helps?

My language was previously setted on "Spanish", but I am NOT a Spaniard and I don't want to see Spanish posters, i want to see ORIGINAL posters, the ones in the original language of the movie.

How should I set the "Title Display Language" in order to see the posters in the movie's original language, whatever it may be according to the movie?

Looking forward to your response, thanks in advance.

Since today, almost every single movie posters have changed according to the country you're in,
for example I am French and all the movie posters are now in French,
it goes for non-French films too.
But why is that ? Is there a way to change it back ?

Hi Luma,
Thank you for your feedback. We're always working on improving IMDb,
and I've shared your feedback with the team.
However please know that the poster image is based off the "Title Display Language"
in your Content Settings.
If you'd like to update the movie poster to reflect another language,
please and update "Title Display Language" to the desired language.

Hi Luma, we are experimenting with presenting the localized language posters
based on geography and/or account content settings.
It should match the text language you see around posters.

Thank you ACT_1

But, how can I
update "Title Display Language" to the desired language.
if my desired language is the original language?
ie: English for USA/UK, Japanese for Japan, Russian for USSR/Russia, etc.

If Original is selected under country/region, perhaps the language setting should be ignored so the primary poster is used. This would be more similar to how the display of titles works.
