Alex: I'm not sure what the problem you are experiencing is. Try going to a page such as http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0803096/companycredits (for Warcraft). You should see 4 production companies, 20 distributors, 7 special effects companies, and 11 other companies.

If you don't see companies listed on that page, please post a screen capture to show what you do see.

I agree with the original poster; the link on the front page to the company credirs subpage no longer exists; jsut a link for imdb pro.
(for all movie I've tried)

Some confusion may arise for some users who may not be entirely familiar with the current title page layouts.

If we scroll down on any main title page  (in its default layout, not Reference or Combined), including for example the main page of the example title that Gromit82 mentioned, we find a section named "Company Credits", and that section contains only this:

     Company Credits
      Show detailed company contact information on IMDbPro »

Those links lead directly to Pro.  That section titled "Company Credits" does not contain a link to the free Company Credits page.  IMO, this may initially confuse some users.

The solution, of course, is to look elsewhere on the page to find the link to the free "Company Credits" page.  That link (as experienced users know) can be found  (1)  in the "Quick Links" sidebar on title pages that still use the legacy layout, or  (2) among the options available in the "More" menu on title pages that use the newer layout.

IMO, to maximize ease of use and avoid any such confusion, the aforementioned section named "Company Credits" on main title pages should contain a link to the free Company Credits page.  I hope IMDb will consider adding such a link to that section.

(Note:  My comments above pertain only to the default title page layouts as viewed on IMDb.com on a desktop computer — not in the mobile apps, which I have never used.)

The problem has been fixed.
We now see the appropriate links in the
company credits sections on title pages.

It appears like Col Needham has sent a ticket with the appropriate team at least a hour ago, so it looks like the problem is gonna be fixed as soon as possible. :-) Here's the link: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/company-credits-see-more-link. By the way, I've been experiencing the same problem as well, getting straight into IMDb Pro instead of any of the production/distribution companies I was supposed to.
