If I set this to USA/International I would expect the popular title, the one IMDB displays by default. This is not the case, e.g. all of:

http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=ian+flemming%27s

Will display with the full "Ian Flemming's ..." title.

Is this an issue with the scraper, or by design? I'd imagine that most people would like the popular title. This has been an issue with foreign films such as:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116704/

Which has been displayed as "Ging chaat goo si 4: Ji gaan daan yam mo" up until now. I was hoping this scraper setting would finally help with that, but not if it messes with English titles.

Tested and working on almost everything, great. This one gave it a bit of trouble:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0127357/

Not sure if you can work around that though. it Only has an English title for cable TV. Guess you could use that if you know what language the popular title is in, but I'm not sure if IMDB tells you that.

Not sure why you (olympia) edited the regex i submitted and remove the \s* part; because it broke it. I even posted http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt0068650/ as an example last time.

Broke what?
I always appreciated your work and comments - would expect some more respectful communication from your side as well...

Two examples for the reason:
http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt0112384/
http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt0499549/

wont break those if you check for production country. maybe this got lost in the conversation..

ps. didnt mean to be disrespectful. but you didnt say anything about why/what you did so how should i know

No new option with production country please.
That was left out on purpose: too confusing.

I don't consider this as a frequent issue, but if we want a solution, then we have to solve it without a new - confusing - option.
