I am reading IMDb from Hong Kong and some films (e.g. Now you see me, the social network) are showing chinese pronounciation as film title, the original title are hidden. 
Can you add an option for us to choose which languare to see?
It is chaotic to have both chinese and english at the same time. Besides, Hong Kong don't use this kind of language system in daily life.
Thank you.

Hey hey.

Such option exists. You need to visit your Site Preferences: https://www.imdb.com/preferences/general ;
and then select "Original" for "Title display country/region":

How hard is it to display titles based on order of preference/precedence,
#1. Original title
#2: 1st User's preferred-language title( in case the original title isn't in their preferred-language)
#3: 2nd User's preferred-language title( in case the title doesn't have option #2 language), and so on. 

I've been waiting for years for this feature.

Exp: When i look at a french movie page I want to see 1. its original French title and 2. my preferred-language title (English). If there is no English title for this movie then it displays my 2nd preferred-language title (whatever I, the user, sets to) and so on - or doesn't display the 2nd title at all if the user doesn't set the preferred-language title setting yet.
