Data Dumps from IMDb are now Available Through the IMDb Fetcher API

IMDb Fetcher is an experimental IMDb movie and actors/directors/cast/etc details and search retrieval service I launched in early 2014. In case you don’t want to use the REST API to retrieve IMDb movie and actor data, you can now get data dumps in JSON format, containing several thousand entries.

Here’s a single data dump for a movie and for a name:
