The best way to learn the tricks of movie screenwriting is to read as many movie scripts as possible. Script Reader Pro made headlines last year for debuting 50 screenplays online for free, and now the team over at Shore Scripts has done the same by making 45 genre screenplays available for free online. Shore Scripts picked five scripts in nine different film genres to feature, which means you now have free access to films written by Stanley Kubrick, Tony Kushner, Rian Johnson, Nora Ephron, and Tina Fey.

Shore Scripts is an organization made up filmmakers in the United Kingdom and the United States that seeks to help emerging screenwriters break into the industry. The team is offering free downloadable scripts for films as classic as “The Iron Giant,” “Goodfellas,” “A Clockwork Orange,” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
