Parameters

Note: Do not link to an article more than once in the infobox. All parameters are optional. See also MOS:FILM.

Parameter Explanation
name Insert the full common name of the film (defaults to {{PAGENAME}} if empty).
image Insert a relevant image for the film. Ideally this should be a film poster, but a DVD/VHS cover, screenshot, or other film-related image may also be used. Only use the actual file name, i.e. image = Forrest Gump poster.jpg.
image_size The infobox automatically resizes images to a default width of 200px. Use this parameter only if the image being used is smaller than 200px.
caption Insert image caption, which should describe the type of image used.
director Insert the name(s) of the director(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each director to his/her appropriate article if possible.
producer Insert the name(s) of the producer(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each producer to his/her appropriate article if possible.
writer Insert the name(s) of the writer(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each writer to his/her appropriate article if possible.
narrator Insert the name(s) of the narrator(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each narrator to his/her appropriate article if possible.
starring Insert the name(s) of the actor(s) who had major roles in the film. Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each actor to his/her appropriate article if possible.
music Insert the name(s) of the composer(s) of original music. Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each composer to his/her appropriate article if possible.
cinematography Insert the name(s) of the cinematographer(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each cinematographer to his/her appropriate article if possible.
editing Insert the name(s) of the editor(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). If a credit for an "additional editor" is shown, add the tag "(addl)". Link each editor to his/her article if possible.
studio Insert the company that produced the film. Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each company to its appropriate article if possible.
distributor Insert the company name(s) of the distributor(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). In addition, link each distributor to its appropriate article if possible.
released Insert only the most relevant release date(s) of the film (see WP:FilmRelease for a detailed guideline). If multiple entries are required, separate with line breaks (<br />).
runtime Insert an approximate time duration of the film in minutes.
country Insert the country or countries that the film was produced in. Link each country to its appropriate article if possible.
language Insert the language primarily used in the film. Databases often give every language spoken within the film, even if they only reflect a few lines in the overall script. Only in rare cases of clearly bilingual or multilingual films, enter separate entries with a line break (<br />). In the case of a single language without any additional text, it will automatically link to the language article (and the film article will also be put automatically in the category concerned). In other cases, give the wikitext for the desired linked text.
budget Insert the approximate budget of the film.
gross Insert the gross revenue accrued by the film. This information is available for most pictures at Box Office Mojo. Worldwide gross is preferred.
preceded_by If the film is part of a series, insert the film(s) that preceded it in the series. Please note that per MOS:TITLE, film titles should always be italicized. Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />).
followed_by If the film is part of a series, insert the film(s) that followed it in the series. Please note that per MOS:TITLE, film titles should always be italicized. Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />).
website These parameters are now deprecated following extensive discussion. Links to these websites can be added to the "External links" section of an article by using the following templates:
imdb_id
amg_id

IMDb, Allmovie, and other external links

External links to resources such as the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), Allmovie and any official website are no longer included in this template. Nevertheless, these resources and others may be usefully added to the External Links section of the article using the following templates:

  • {{Amg movie|id=amg_id|title=film title}}
  • {{Mojo title|id=bom_id|title=film title}}
  • {{imdb title|id=imdb_id|title=film title}}
  • {{Metacritic film|id=mc_id|title=film title}}
  • {{rotten-tomatoes|id=rt_id|title=film title}}
  • {{tcmdb title|id=tc_id|title=film title}}
  • {{ymovies title|id=ym_id|title=film title}}

For the imdb and allmovie templates, the ids can be copied directly from the fields that are present in many existing infobox template calls. The fields can then be removed from the template.

History

When this infobox template was first created, in December 2004, one of the parameters created an external link to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). Irrespective of the fact that IMDb is not used as a reliable source for verifying content in Wikipedia articles, it still is a resource that many people, including editors and readers of Wikipedia, often turn to.

In more recent years, additional external websites have become increasingly useful resources, including Allmovie, Box Office Mojo, Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes. Also, modern films almost invariably have an official website. As a consequence, new external links were added to and removed from the infobox as consensus changed on the subject.

Discussions about the fate of these links took place in numerous places over some time, with a number of people advocating removal of all external links from the infobox, if not the article as a whole. Others spoke of the value of having at least a link to IMDb in the infobox. Eventually, a far from undisputed consensus arose to remove all external links from the infobox and to move them to the External links section where appropriate in view of the External links guideline.

Important points towards this consensus included fact that the infobox could not include all of the available links and that it would be inappropriate to pick and choose one or a few of those links over others. Suggestions that losing access to the most useful of the available links (typically IMDb) would damage the usefulness of film articles were not found persuasive by many since such links could still be included in the External links section and the table of contents linking to the external links section having all of the useful external links is adjacent the infobox.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Dates will only appear if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates). As an alternative, you may use or {{Start-date}} and {{End-date}}.

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
