Every year, film studios and production companies release their best scripts ahead of award season for consideration. This means that you get to read some of the best scripts of the year!

Reading scripts is a really great way to get insight into script writing and film making, seeing how the words on the page are translated into shots and sequences, how things were interpreted and used, and where you might have chosen differently. As a writer, they’re a great way to get used to what scripts look and feel like, and how you can write one or improve your own work. As the saying goes, read scripts, write pages.

You can find them at different sites right now, but here they are handily collected in one place for you by the wonderful people at Go Into The Story, which is the Blacklist blog (if you’re not subscribed to them, you should be!) This year includes some great titles so far, including Legend, Slow West, Ex Machina, with more being added each day. Click here to take a look.
