Remember how it was a pretty big deal a few years ago when that guy posted a copy of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” online before its opening. Fox raised a stink and ended up taking the guy to court. Now, the guy (Gilberto Sanchez) is off to federal prison for ONE YEAR. DAMN! Let that be a lesson to Lisbeth Salander and other computer goons out there who want to infringe copyrights: Don’t fuck with a movie studio during a recession.
It’s that time of year again! Because it’s award season, some of the best films of the year have made their scripts available for download. This is for award consideration, but we reap the benefits, as now you have a chance to check out the paper behind some great films (for FREE!).
This week, Fox Searchlight has made it possible to download “Martha Marcy May Marlene”, “Win Win”, “The Tree of Life”, “Shame”, “Margaret” and one of the year’s best films, “The Descendants”. Get ’em all HERE.
Your host for the Indie Spirit Awards is…Seth Rogen! I’m thrilled, as ever. Not only has he been nothing but hilarious for YEARS now, but he also has out a great half-indie film in “50/50”. I hope he laughs a lot.
