Film

Film, also called a movie, motion picture, theatrical film, or photoplay, is a series of still images that when shown on a screen create an illusion of motion images (due to the phi phenomenon).

Hollywood Studios used to run a tight monopoly on film production, distribution, and exhibition. If you were an independent filmmaker, it was not possible to get your film distributed or seen on your own. You had to go through one of the major film studios and if they didn't like your film for any reason (perhaps a threat to one they're working on or just plain a really good film that could do well), it wasn't going anywhere. Then in 1948, the Supreme Court ruled that Hollywood studios could not own all 3 major arms for getting a film out and that the studios must part with one of them. Hollywood then decided that loosing exhibition would hurt them the least so they sold of the majority of their theaters.

The internet movie database (IMDb for short) has come to be considered standard by Hollywood. IMDb has become a great resource for knowing who's in a film, watching all the latest trailers, bits of trivia amongst other great information. Users can also submit information on their favorite films and IMDb will review it for possible inclusion as well as rate movies and add them to their watchlist to get notifications for theatrical/video release. What's more is IMDb is part of Amazon so if you already have an Amazon account, you can use Amazon to sign in.
