Short for Internet movie database, IMDb was first started by Col Needham and others as a popular Usenet newsgroup on October 17, 1990 as a place to exchange and share movie information. IMDb was later moved to a website after registering for a domain on January 5, 1996. It became one of the most popular locations to locate any information related to movies.

In 1998, it was purchased by Amazon.com. Today, you can find everything related to almost every movie, actor, actress, and TV show.
