ScriptShadow: A Look Back at 10 Scripts and How They Performed At The Box Office

Carson Reeves over at ScriptShadow, for those who read him, is taking A Look Back at 10 Scripts and How They Performed At The Box Office:
“Back in the day, only a chosen few – those employed by the studio or those who worked on the film – had the privilege of reading a script before the movie came out. As such, only a few people were able to boast about their dead-on assessment of a great script or dribble out excuses for why the amazing screenplay they found turned into a giant piece of komodo dragon dung. However now, with the proliferation of screenplays on the web, anybody can do it! As you know, I haven’t shied away from giving my opinion on a few screenplays, and since the site’s been up, a lot of those projects have since made it into theaters. So I thought, why not go back and compare my original take to the eventual result. I’m not trying to make some grand statement here, but it’s time to own up to where I was wrong and gloat about where I was right. So I give you…ten screenplays I reviewed on Scriptshadow, their critical and box office fate, and why they either succeeded or failed.”

It’s interesting to do the script to screen gutcheck, I highly recommend it … I read some of those scripts, and you can learn a lot in seeing how it translates … go read the rest here: A Look Back at 10 Scripts and How They Performed At The Box Office:
