Clowan:Infobox film

{{infobox film}} is used to list at-a-glance comparative information about a particular motion picture.

Parameters[reagh]

All parameters are optional.

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. See #Image for further guidelines.
image size The infobox uses frameless which automatically resizes images to a default width of 220px unless the full size of the image is smaller. Logged in users can change the default width by clicking on "my preferences" and changing the thumbnail size under the "Appearance" tab (see Help:Preferences). This parameter should not normally be used.
alt Alt text for the image. See WP:ALT. This field is normally not visible in standard web browsers, but you can see it by requesting the image's properties from the brower. A visually impaired reader will typically hear the alt text in place of the image.
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. Some films are based on previously produced or published material, such as books, plays, articles, old screenplays etc. When this is the case, list the writer(s) of the film first, then list the source material writer(s) (while placing {{small|original writer}} in parenthesis either next to or under the name).
screenplay Insert the name(s) of the screenplay writer(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). Use this field instead of the normal writer field if films divide writing credits between screenplay and story writers.
story Insert the name(s) of the story writer(s). Separate multiple entries with a line break (<br />). Use this field instead of the normal writer field if films divide writing credits between screenplay and story writers. If the film is an adaptation and the original author did not have a formal role as a screenplay or story writer, then they should come last in the list.
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. Do not add qualifiers such as "with" or "featuring", nor should punctuation or "and" be added as the line break acts as the text separator.
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 />). Listing "additional editors" and "supervising editors" may occasionally be appropriate, in which case add the tag "(add)" or "(sup)". 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. If multiple entries are required, separate with a line break (<br />). Use {{Film date}}. See #Release dates for additional guidelines.
runtime Insert an approximate time duration of the film in minutes. Do not link to minute.
country Insert the home country or countries of the film's main production companies. Do not use flag icons, as this places an unnecessary emphasis on nationality; see MOS:FLAG for a detailed rationale. Do not link to Cinema of XXXX; see WP:EGG.
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.

Note: inserting "English" will not automatically link to English language. This has been done intentionally because readers of the English Wikipedia are already familiar with the language and no benefit is added by placing a link to it. Please do not override this by inserting [[English language|English]].

budget Insert the approximate budget of the film. Budget figures can be found at Box Office Mojo and The-Numbers, with the later usually listing a mainstream website as the main source of the budget, such as the Los Angeles Times, Variety, etc. Such websites are preferred to cite as a reference, if possible.
gross Insert the gross revenue accrued by the film. This information is available for most pictures at Box Office Mojo and The-Numbers. If worldwide gross is not available, then indicate which region has grossed that amount.
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 />).

| alt            = "PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE" in large red letters adorns a beam from a night sky containing spacecraft and warplanes. The foreground has the head of a man in a bubble-headed red spacesuit, a caped vampire attacking a victim, a seductive vampiress, and gravediggers at work. Above the title is "UNSPEAKABLE HORRORS FROM OUTER SPACE PARALYZE THE LIVING AND RESURRECT THE DEAD!"; below are "BELA LUGOSI", "VAMPIRA", and "LYLE TALBOT".

Image[reagh]

Ideally, an image of the film's original theatrical release poster should be uploaded and added to the infobox to serve as an identifying image for the article. Poster images can be found at websites such as Internet Movie Poster Awards or Internet Movie Poster Database. If a poster image cannot be found for the film, or if the film did not have a theatrical release, then a cover image of the film's display case (VHS, DVD, etc.) may be used instead. Cover images can be found at commercial websites such as Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. In the absence of an appropriate poster or cover image, a screenshot of the film's title card may also be used. When replacing an existing image, upload the new image over the old image (where possible), and update the relevant details on the image description page. Click here to find instructions for uploading non-free images.

Once uploaded, place the file name of the image, e.g., FILM TITLE poster.jpg (or a similar description), in the image= field of the infobox, but do not include the Image: part of the file name. The image_size= field only needs to be filled if the width of the image is less than 200 pixels (the default image width used by the infobox); enter the actual width of the image, in pixels, so it is not stretched in the infobox. The caption= field should describe the image, i.e., identifying it as "Theatrical release poster" or "DVD cover"; repeating the title of the film here is not necessary. Below is an example of how to use the fields:

| name           = FILM TITLE
| image          = FILM TITLE poster.jpg
| image_size     = 150
| caption        = Theatrical release poster

Release dates[reagh]

Cassan er lheh:
WP:FilmRelease
WP:FILMRELEASE

The film infobox is too small to reproduce the long lists of release dates provided by sources such as the Internet Movie Database. Release dates should therefore be restricted to the film's earliest release, whether it was at a film festival or a public release, and the release date(s) in the country or countries that produced the film, excluding sneak previews or screenings. {{Film date}} should be used for the film's release dates. If other release dates are found to be notable, it may be appropriate to include them in the main body of the article (example).

Release dates for straight-to-video and television films should follow the preceding guideline for home releases and airings, respectively.

Some editors like to use flag icons instead of country names. However, this should be avoided, as flags are less recognizable than country names. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style (flags) for a more detailed rationale.

IMDb, Allmovie, and other external links[reagh]

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, British Film Institute, 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.

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:

Ratings[reagh]

Clowan:Main Like links to IMDb, statements of a film's rating(s) have been excluded from the infobox as consensus has shifted over the years. Mainly, there are simply too many ratings systems in English-speaking countries, let alone the world over. Further, these ratings systems rarely exactly agree, and a film's rating can change drastically over time as different editions of a film are released, and re-released, to theaters, broadcast, cable/satellite/streaming, and home media. Ratings information should be integrated into the film's article.
