As you have noticed, we've just completed a major re-launch of the site.

This being said, there are still things that aren't complete. We have not "deleted/erased/reduced" the hi-res images. We just haven't finished the pages to display those images yet.

Rest assured, the images are still "there" and they are going to be usable/viewable again VERY soon.

We DEFINITELY appreciate your feedback and are working hard to get everything our users have come to expect back up on the site.

Just as well, the all-time top 50+ will be back shortly (along with several changes/improvements in the current box office stats). Please stay tuned to our news section for all the latest industry news and site updates! We are still making changes and -- we had a few things still "in the works" when we hit our "cut-over" date.

So... by now you've noticed that MovieWeb has a whole new look!

That's right, this is the NEW MovieWeb! At long last!

For those of you who have come across another great movie site, Lights Out Entertainment, in the past -- the look is very familiar... comfortable even. That's because MovieWeb and Lights Out Entertainment have MERGED to create what we think (and we hope you'll agree) is the BEST movie site on the Web.

But this is only the beginning. The MovieWeb team has a whole WALL full of whiteboard notes, drawings, and more -- all about the new features that are coming soon for your use and enjoyment. All of us are focused on only one thing... creating the most useful and fun movie site online.

Now... for all the users that have been using MovieWeb and are now faced with an entirely new site and interface -- we know it can be a bit confusing. Maybe even intimidating. But NEVER FEAR! The new site is easy to use and will feel comfortable and familiar to you very soon!

In the meantime, we wanted to offer a few pointers on navigating the site so you can find much of the stuff you've been getting at MovieWeb all along.

THEATRICAL RELEASES:

There are a few different ways to get at the theatrical release information. The first place to take a look at our latest release date information is to click on over to our Release Dates section! Browse through current, past, and future release date lists with ease. With our massively comprehensive release date schedule you'll know exactly when films are hitting theaters, and in the case of lower budgeted films, where the films will be hitting as well!

BOX OFFICE DATA:

Again, there are a few different ways to get what you're looking for here, as well. Right now we're listing the daily box office takes for the top 10 films from the last 2 years. With our Box Office system you can scroll back as far as you want to check for the data you're looking for! Stay tuned for Weekend Data, Yearly Data, Monthly Data, and film specific data coming soon!

COLUMNS:

Our columns, including AGENT ORANGE, STUDIO BRIEFING, MOVIE GURU, KIDS KORNER and IN-OTHER-NEWS are not currently up (although Orange's reviews can be found in the REVIEWS section). We will be launching a new "COLUMNS" area on the site that will provide a current and archival access to all the MovieWeb columns. Keep watching for this -- coming soon!

MOVIE PAGES:

You may notice some differences on the movie pages. First, there is TONS more information on these pages and links to media (trailers, clips, etc.).

You may be wondering, though, where the hi-res images are. MovieWeb has, after all, become the best-known place on the web for hi-res studio stills. Those stills are still on the site and will be available soon. For now, we are redesigning the pages that will show them...stay tuned for this as well!

What about production notes? Well, we don't ALWAYS get production notes for all films. BUT for those films that we DO get them for, we make them available online. You won't find them right now, however, because we are also working on adding them to the movie pages on this -- the new site.

Finally, a cast list. MovieWeb used to provide the list of major cast and the roles (by name) in the movie. Well... again, right now, that is not a feature of the movie pages, but we are working on integrating that as we continue to improve our database.

Generally, though, all the movies you could access on MovieWeb before are available on the site (with a few exceptions -- that we're adding to the new database as quickly as we can). We are also adding (very soon) a MASSIVE home video database to provide our users with EVEN MORE info on their favorite movies AND the ability to purchase them directly from our store (also coming soon).

OTHER:

Overall, you'll find LOTS AND LOTS of new stuff. Forums(message boards...get an account today and chat with other movie lovers!), Soundtracks (streaming), Contests, DVD information and LOTS more.

Please browse around... Explore. If you have questions, comments, suggestions or feedback, drop us a line:

We welcome your feedback and look forward to working with your feedback to make this your favorite online movie site!

Happy Holidays!
