Note: Do not link to an article more than once in the infobox. All parameters are optional. See also MOS:FILM.

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.

country Insert the country or countries that the film was produced in. Link each country to its appropriate article if possible.
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.

imdb_id
amg_id

IMDb, Allmovie, and other external linksEdit

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:

For the imdb and allmovie templates, the ids can be copied directly from the fields that are present in many existing infobox template calls. The fields can then be removed from the template.

HistoryEdit

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, 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.

SynopsisEdit

After defeating the sworn enemy of his kingdom in a ferocious assault, Halfin, Crown Prince of Avergond, returns to the capital city in celebration with plans to settle down in a time of peace and marry his love, Ioreth. His father, Dolon, is an elderly man who has been ailing recently and plans to have Halfin named king upon his death. This does not sit well with Evret, Halfin's younger brother who is very ambitious and cunning, and also is greatly jealous of his brother's fame and fortune. One night, Evret stages a coup of sorts, driving his brother from the capital and disposing of any potential resistance, now ruling in all but name. Halfin is forced to flee into the wilderness and enlists the aid of a retired general called Ubert, who served Dolon years before. Together they go before Lucern, the new leader of Avergond's rival and work out a deal that will exchange peace for Lucern's aid. After Dolon dies from ill health, Evret has himself crowned king, and the stage is set for a confrontation. When a failed assassin strike kills Ubert instead of Halfin, the spark is lit as both brothers marshal armies for a decisive battle. In the end, Halfin and Lucern's forces break into the capital of Avergond and Halfin confronts, fights, and kills his brother. Peace then returns to the kingdom and Halfin is crowned king and is reunited with Ioreth and marries her.

Critical and Awards ReceptionEdit

Avergond was very well regarded by audiences, gaining very strong traction and legs at the box office. It was also well received by film critics as well, getting an 84% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. USA Today gave it a four-star rating and both Premiere and Entertainment Weekly Magazines listed it as one of the best films of the year.

At the Golden Globes, Avergond was nominated for five awards, including Best Drama, but was shut out of every single one. However momentum and buzz seemed to build for this film, because when the Oscar ceremonies were held it broke out of its shell and stunned everyone. Nominated for 10 Academy awards, it was able to win a sterling seven of them, including the award for Best Picture. Avergond upset regarded favorites Stars of the Serial and Lady Luck and is known in CAYOM as one of the most famous dark horses out there.
