IMDb should add an anticipation rating to all up coming/in development material. This would help create a real feedback tool for studios/developers, to gauge public interest and to see how effective add campaigns etc are. For instance, I know mass effect (the movie) is in development, and I am extremely keen for this to arrive, and I would like to express my interest in hope that the studio developing it would shift into a higher gear on that project and also that they do a decent job of it, as the more interest it receives, the more easily the developers could access funding.

The meters are only available on imdbpro, aside from the top ten view. This would be a good general feature for a movie website to let everyone see and use, especially as it goes more social.

Some form of anticipation rating, like Flixter's % people want to see this, would be nice to see on forthcoming movies instead of "voting begins after release." I don't have imdb pro, so I don't know if the moviemeter is there for pro users or not.

IMDb could add 2 buttons (Thumb up and down) on movie profiles which are not available yet and the most liked movies will be added to "Most anticipated" list (similar to Top rated movies).
