Amazon's been making a much bigger push into advertising and original entertainment. But the company has long had a major integral presence in the space, albeit a quiet one. That is, if you consider 160 million uniques quiet. That's how big and integral IMDB.com is to the Web experience.

IMDB founder Col Needham talked to Adweek about X-Ray, the company's second-screen app, and MDB's rich data supply and ad potential.
