A few weeks ago we noted that the script for This Is 40 had been made available online, as part of an Oscar campaign for the screenplay. This practice is becoming increasingly common, and the website Dear Cinema has flagged more than 20 official scripts that have been uploaded as PDFs by the studios that distributed the movies in question.

Among the scripts are those for Moonrise Kingdom, the Tony Kushner-penned Lincoln, Seth MacFarlane's Ted, and more. Happy reading.
