Hi, I ́m currently doing my master research in movie box office prediction with deep learning. Does anyone know if imdb has a database with movie scripts and number of total tickets sold by movie ?

Hi Rafael,

IMDb does not store movie scripts, but you may find some websites that do it. Samewise, box-office results (number of entries) may be obtained, some of them for free. So you could link the data somehow.

Just beware that the scripts you may find on the web might more or less differ from the actual movie, due to on-set changes and final editing.

Hi Vincent,

Thank you for your support. As part of my research I've found some movie scripts sites and the US site "The Numbers" that has information about tickets sold from 1995 to 2018. I'm doing a lot of effort to integrate data into a unique database, but till now I only have about 950 movies with both the script and the numbers i need. I expect to increase this numbers a bit in order to get better results for my model. But for now i'd like to thank you for your explanation.

Hi, Rafael Sá. IMDb does not contain the complete content of movie scripts. There is an unrelated website that facilitates such a purpose. As for box office information, there is a partner of IMDb that may document numbers of tickets sold by particular movies: Box Office Mojo.

I couldnt find information about tickets sold on box office Mojo, only information about Gross revenue and another monetary metrics. Does it has this information ?
