Box Office Mojo apparently dead at 15 (update: It’s alive)

By Andrew Sims | Edited by Brandi Delhagen

Beloved movie website Box Office Mojo appears to have been killed by Amazon and IMDb.

UPDATE: The site is back online as of Saturday night, albeit working unreliably at the moment.

Users of the website, which has been around since 1999, noticed on Friday afternoon that the domain is now redirecting to a lame box office page on IMDb.

Both websites are owned by Amazon, who has yet to comment on the news.

While some believe that Box Office Mojo may only be down for maintenance, it’s worrying that a writer for the site has been suspiciously quiet on Twitter today.

Box Office Mojo is considered the go-to resource for box office data. It was easy to browse and included every type of box office statistic you could hope for.

Many in Hollywood commented on the news via Twitter:
