Description

There is a mediacenter called Boxee, you can watch movies and series from your computer via the mediacenter (like showtime).
Anyway, it got this cool feature, where it fetches the information about the movie, and even trailers via youtube.

I dont know how, but i guess it searches for the movie name and then snatches the information from like IMDB or something like that..

Wouldnt it be cool to have that feature in showtime in the right-side bar, as you scroll through your movies? ;)

Presenting more data would be great!

Can we get a direct link from TMDB for trailer/s (when available)?
And maybe some screenshots under the cover?
