Still image/product art as primary poster by studio partner

I found some titles that have a still image or a product art as a primary poster. The problem is when those images have been submitted by a "studio partner" no one can't suggest an actual poster.


My question is, can't IMDb do something about it? Because they are not posters at all.

Moreover does "studio partner" means someone with scorecard access?
If yes, then if a theatrical distributor submit a poster and set it as primary image but later the dvd/blu-ray distributor upload the product art and set it as primary, that creates a conflict.

Can't you tell these people to at least make sure they use a real poster as primary image when available instead of something that make the title's page not good looking, it's in their best interest too eventually.

Just my opinion,

Hi Reeltor,

Thank you for reaching out.

Studio source images such as the types mentioned above are curated into IMDb by Production, Distributor and/or Sales representatives of productions.

As the galleries have poster type images, I have now amended the primary display images to one of the more relevant types available.

For further reference, see the image guidelines:

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,
