ATLAS SHRUGGED Inadvertently Releases Collector’s Item

Error on Atlas Shrugged DVD and Blu-Ray slips through cracks, ends up on retail shelves.

(Santa Monica), November 11, 2011 - Atlas Productions LLC announced today its plan to replace more than 100,000 title sheets appearing on the Atlas Shrugged Part 1 DVD and Blu-ray versions sold through major retail outlets. These retail versions were packaged with an inaccurate synopsis of Atlas Shrugged. Not affected were the “Special Edition” versions sold online at

The 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged, is known in philosophical and political circles for presenting a cogent argument advocating a society driven by rational self-interest. On the back of the film's retail DVD and Blu-ray however, the movie’s synopsis contradictorily states “AYN RAND’s timeless novel of courage and self-sacrifice comes to life...

“It’s embarrassing for sure and of course, regardless of how or why it happened, we’re all feeling responsible right now.” says Scott DeSapio, Atlas Productions’ COO and Communications Director “You can imagine how mortified we all were when we saw the DVD but, it was simply too late - the product was already on shelves all over the Country. It was certainly no surprise when the incredulous emails ensued. The irony is inescapable.”

DeSapio continued “Ultimately, the responsibility falls on us, Atlas Productions. We are putting policies in place now to ensure we avoid these types of unforced errors in the future.”

Harmon Kaslow, CEO of Atlas Productions and Producer of the film stated “As we all well know, the ideas brought to life in Atlas Shrugged are entirely antithetical to the idea of ‘self-sacrifice’ as a virtue. Atlas is quite literally a story about the dangers of self-sacrifice. The error was an unfortunate one and fans of Ayn Rand and Atlas have every right to be upset... and we have every intention of making it right.”

John Aglialoro, Chairman and owner of Atlas Productions stated, “We needed to quickly correct this mistake and I’m pleased we did.”

Kaslow added, “To those that purchased the flawed cover, congratulations are in order. You’ve inadvertently got yourself a real collector’s item there."

Atlas Productions has setup a web page for consumers of the DVD to request a replacement title sheet free of charge: The new title sheet will more accurately read “AYN RAND’s timeless novel of rational self-interest comes to life...

Rand’s 1,100 page bestselling book is being produced by Atlas Productions as a trilogy which follows the three part structure of the novel. Part 1 was released theatrically in USA on April 15, 2011. Part 2 is expected to follow in 2012.


About Atlas Productions: Atlas Productions, LLC. was formed by John Aglialoro as a motion picture studio to produce and distribute films including those based on Ayn Rand’s epic novel, Atlas Shrugged. For more information, visit

DVDs, Blu-Rays and John Galt's Canadian Theatre Invasion


Only one week left to pre-order your Atlas Shrugged Special Edition DVD to ensure November 8th delivery.



Good News, Bad News...

Unfortunately, the Atlas Shrugged Special Edition Blu-Ray, which combines ALL of the exclusive content from ALL of the Special Edition DVDs (and then some), will not be available for pre-order until mid-November with a release date pending for late November.

HOWEVER, you can pre-order the standard edition 20th Century Fox version of the Blu-Ray on Amazon right now for release day delivery on Nov. 8th. It won't be nearly as content rich as the Special Edition but, if you simply can't wait for the movie, problem solved.



Atlas Shrugged begins its Canadian theatre invasion October 28th. Our first stop, the AMC at Yonge and Dundas in Toronto.

Showtimes have not yet been announced. We'll make sure to post links for advanced ticket purchasing as soon as they become available.

Canada, we want to hear from you. Stop by Demand ATLAS, tell us exactly where you are and then... make way. That includes you Toronto - tell us where you are exactly.

Here we come.

A brief message from John A. on Steve Jobs

A message from John Aglialoro, Producer of Atlas Shrugged... 

In 2005, Steve Jobs gave a commencement address to the graduating students at Stanford:

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Ayn Rand couldn't have said it better.
