I haven't seen the film yet but the script to the Big Short is so much fun. I typically scan over scripts without reading through diligently. But, the Big Short...

Look... This guy’s saying the
housing market is a massive bubble...
We didn’t really find Jared Vennett’s housing bubble pitch in the lobby of a bank that rejected us.
The truth is, a friend told Charlie about it. And I read about it in Grant’s Interest Rate Observer. But this is more fun.

What about Mad Max: Fury Road? I would love to see how George Miller wrote this piece.

This must be an early draft of Ex-Machina, I just read the first 2 scenes and only a third or so of the dialogue made it to the movie.

I can't seem to open 5 of the scripts. Is that because the URL's don't work from where I'm from? (The Netherlands). Or were they just available for a certain period of time?
These are the ones: Ex Machina, Inside Out, Spotlight, Carol and Room.
