'Donnie Darko' is the #2 Film of the Last 10 Years, Says IMDbPro

In celebration of their 10th anniversary of IMDbPro, IMDb has unveiled the redesigned new look of their popular subscription arm along with top 10 lists that document the movies, celebrities, TV shows and in-production titles that generated the most Pro traffic in the last decade.

Launched in 2000 at Sundance, IMDbPro was created to make it easier for entertainment industry professionals to “get informed, get connected and get discovered,” as Pro head Jack Bernstein told Indiewire in Park City. The redesign is available to new and current subscribers and will go live this summer.

Pro has streamlined the look of the pages and enhanced it with better search functionality and an easier way to find contact information. They’ve also included a section on the name pages where a video of a trailer or actor’s demo can be embedded.

And looking back on their top decades’ lists, they were surpised to find Richard Kelly’s “Donnie Darko” placed at number two in Pro’s top 10 films of the last 10 years.

“It’s the only film on the lists that has been around since the existence of Pro,” said IMDb founder and CEO Col Needham about “Darko,” which premiered at Sundance in 2001. “It had a cult status, and the actors in it have gone to bigger things, so it’s a mix of things why it’s so high on the list.”
