Hard to believe Box Office Mojo has been around for 9 years already. So it shouldn’t be surprising that Amazon.com’s subsidiary IMDb.com snapped it up in a deal finalized this week. The go-to website for movie stats sent an email today that it will continue to operate as a stand-alone business and produce analysis and comprehensive box office tracking for free online. Also, its headquarters will remain in the Los Angeles area. “We expect this change to allow us to expand our offering to readers by leveraging IMDb’s comprehensive database of movies and those who make them. IMDb is committed to further developing the Box Office Mojo brand and building upon the success of the past nine years,” said a joint statement by Box Office Mojo’s Brandon Gray and Sean Saulsbury.
