Scripts Online for Oscar Hopefuls Into the Wild, Kite Runner, and More!

Paramount Vantage also presents Mighty Heart, Margot, There Will Be Blood for your consideration.

The folks at Paramount Vantage are wearing their Oscar contender hopes on their sleeves, posting the scripts for four of their strongest 2007 films online for public consumption.

If you want to read screenplays for A Mighty Heart, Into the Wild, Margot at the Wedding, and The Kite Runner, you can download the pdf files here, direct from the studio. A fifth film, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s highly anticipated opus There Will Be Blood, is also offered up “for consideration,” although the studio has apparently since taken down the film’s script after web-savvy readers like Movie City News‘ Ray Pride figured out how to access it.


Patience, friends. There Will Be Blood is coming soon!

Of course, the site is ostensibly for voting members of Hollywood’s professional guilds, so don’t think it’ll be a breeze to RSVP for any of the special screenings listed. But even us non-Guild folks should enjoy thumbing through the assorted goodies posted for our viewing/listening pleasure. Hear snippets of the Kite Runner score, listen to all of Eddie Vedder’s Into the Wild songs, and read Noah Baumbach‘s Margot at the Wedding script. (We were delighted to notice on the Mighty Heart page that Paramount Vantage is pushing Archie Panjabi for Best Supporting Actress.)

The one “Huh?” hesitation we have with these campaigns is with that for Margot at the Wedding. Didn’t this film completely bomb with the festival crowd? At 29 percent on the Tomatometer, it’s got abysmally low reviews for an awards contender — then again, so did last year’s Running With Scissors (28 percent), for which Annette Bening nabbed an Golden Globe nomination. Baumbach raised expectations with his Oscar-nominated script for The Squid and the Whale two years ago, but by most indications few critics could get past Margot‘s wholly unlikeable characters long enough to even think about any other awards-worthy elements.

Meanwhile, neither The Kite Runner nor There Will Be Blood have even opened yet (both will start limited Oscar runs this December) so even small tidbits are enticing for those eagerly anticipating these films. We’re staying tuned for updates, especially when Paramount Vantage posts Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s score to There Will Be Blood!
