IMDb REST API created by Martin Ivanov

AcidJs IMDb Fetcher Home

This service is not endorsed by or affiliated with IMDb.com.

AcidJs IMDb Fetcher is an experimental, free and easy to use REST API for getting movie, series and names (actors, writers, directors, etc.) data from IMDb and returning it in the form of serialized JSON objects that can be used on web apps or sites. Go straight to the documentation to see what's available so far.

The project is developed by Martin Ivanov, so if you have any questions, feel free to contact him or just look around what else is up into. If you are interested in hosting IMDb Fetcher on your own server, drop me a line.

Below is a sample response from a call to the get/name API method of AcidJs IMDb Fetcher. Check the full documentation here.
