"I am John Galt." Video Wall

Within the next week or so, we'll have a real sneak peak of the "I am John Galt." DVD special feature to show off but first, a little primer...

No, this is not taken directly from the DVD - it's just a web plug-in displaying everyone's responses. Stay tuned for the real thing soon.

Also, please note that while the vast majority of the videos presented on this wall did in fact make it to the DVD, there were a few that didn't make it due to some technical gotchas. If you were cut, we'll make it up to you on the next one.

A is A. The Official Atlas Shrugged Movie Blog is here.

Welcome to the new OFFICIAL Atlas Shrugged Movie Blog. We've been extremely busy since the theatrical release of Part 1 and have much to discuss but, before we get started, a word from our sponsor...

"The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me."
- Ayn Rand

A New Domain - THE Domain

AtlasShruggedMovie.com. Ahhhh. Feels better right? Say it out loud: "ATLAS SHRUGGED MOVIE DOT COM." FINALLY. After many months of wrangling, we got it - our domain is finally our domain. If that doesn't make any sense, don't worry too much about it. If it does make sense, please first make your way to a semi-isolated area before throwing your hands up, jumping in the air for joy, and screaming at the top of your lungs - we Randians have an image to uphold.

A New Blog - THE Blog

When putting together our online presence for Part 1, we had to prioritize, build quick and get the fundamentals done without hesitation. We did. Now that we can take a breather... a blog is born.

As AtlasShruggedPart1.com took some time to evolve, so will this blog - give us a minute before you start throwing the tomatoes. ;)

Note: We added all of the old press releases for the sake of posterity and to give the blog a little foundational content so, don't expect to find too much you haven't seen already. Stay tuned - new stuff is on the way.

The new DVD is here! The new DVD is here!

Well... almost here. But, you know what? Our friends over at 20th Century Fox gave us one more HUGE reason to smile with the signing of our brand new shiny DVD/Blu-Ray distribution deal. Can distribution deals be shiny? Yes. Yes they can.

Request a Screening

Looking to host a screening of Atlas for your group or organization? Fill out our Screening Request Form and we'll be in touch shortly.

Note: This is for USA based groups and organizations only. More information on international screenings soon - really.

September 2nd

September 2nd? Did someone say something about September 2nd? I'm sure they did. This September 2nd? It must have been important because I have a note right here that says... that says... "Who is John Galt?"

Culver City, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2011 - Atlas Productions, LLC announced today the launch of its official Atlas Shrugged Part 2 Movie Website: AtlasShruggedPart2.com.

Producer Harmon Kaslow stated “The level of community involvement on the Atlas Shrugged Part 1 Website was tremendous.

On April 15, 2011, however, the day the movie was released, we amazingly served up over 1.6 million.”

“While this new site is a fun first stop for hardcore fans, what we’re really looking forward to is introducing a whole new level of interaction to the entire fan base with what we have in store. It’s a huge plus having the extra time to build something truly special to really connect with fans.” said Communications Director Scott DeSapio.

Producer John Aglialoro added, “It’s time to get focused on Part Two. We’re all very excited about the prospect of communicating more directly with the fan base this time around. It was incredible to witness the community enthusiasm for Part 1 and we can’t wait to fully engage with the fans for Part 2.”

The producers have set a tentative theatrical release date of Fall 2012.

Atlas Shrugged Part 1, a wholly independent film, opened in theaters on April 15, 2011. According to Box Office Mojo, the film stands at #61 of the top 100 money-making films released in 2011. Negotiations are under way with a major studio to release Atlas Shrugged Part 1 on video in the 4th Quarter of this year.

Ayn Rand’s 1100 page novel is being produced by Atlas Productions as a trilogy and follows the three part structure outlined in the book.
