Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For both Sci-Fi and Movies, IMDB is a pretty heavily used resource. We also share links to different movies in chat, and it's not very apparent what those links are because they tend to look like this: imdb.com/title/tt1456635.

A simple one-box would be an amazing feature to have and would benefit both sites.

Maybe you should submit a [feature-request] to IMDb to use proper slugs in their URLs. – mmyers Jul 16 '12 at 16:14

Just drop in the Amazon link. It's the same company now anyway – random Jul 16 '12 at 16:17

Possible alternative (un-declined) request you could support: Rotten Tomatoes OneBox for specific movie request – jadarnel27 Jul 16 '12 at 16:19

Sorry, ain't gonna happen. IMDB doesn't allow it.
