Yes, sorry (data is available on Box Office Mojo).  We have just completed the redirection work now so the calendar is no more.

What IMDb would benefit from this change?

Which page are you referencing here?  We should be steering people to http://www.boxofficemojo.com/ (which is a subsidiary of IMDb) for box office information beyond the current week so in theory there should not be any archive links on IMDb.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled IMDB box office history not available anymore?.

Hi
Isnt the box office history not available on IMDB anymore?
For example, i used to check the box office ratings and releases from the history on weekly basis, dated a couple of months back.
For eg, earlier the link below used to open
http://www.imdb.com/chart/?date=2015-07-03&region=us
or
http://www.imdb.com/boxoffice/calendar
now, whichever date is selected, it opens the current box office releases.

This is hampering my long weekend plans of chilling out. Kindly assist.

Vincent is (mostly) correct, there is a much more complete archive over at Box Office Mojo (which has been owned and operated by IMDb since 2008).  For example, weeklies at http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekly/ back to 1982.

I wouldn't have a problem using Box Office Mojo if there was a link from each film back to IMDb, that way you could easily see all the details you want to & add them to your watch list etc. Currently we have to manually cut'n'paste each film title we want to check out.
As Box Office Mojo has been owned and operated by IMDb since 2008, I'm sure this wouldn't be too hard a feature to organise. Is there any particular reason this won't be implemented??

Well, it's well over a year now. How long do we need to stay tuned?
