It appears there may be some budget cuts.
HA! I loved the part about “some activities requiring collectivism to succeed…like moviemaking.”
I loved the zombie-like yells of “TRAINS!!!”. The movie about the philosophy that can’t be killed off.
Did anyone here actually pay money to see the movie?
it’s taken in 4million so far and cost 20 million.
It lost 43% of it’s gross from week 1 to week 2 despite opening in more theaters. It’s pretty much been a train wreck financially, pun intended.
I’m teaching in Korea right now. One of my great disappointments is that this movie was not popular enough to show here. I really wanted to see it. Then again, I liked “Starship Troopers,” too.
I know not many people in the country saw it. I just wonder if any of the proud libertarians who frequent this site ran out to the nearest theater to appreciate the splendiferousness of Ayn Rand come to life.
I’ve got to see this movie at some point, just to compare it to “The Fountainhead”. Watching that film is like looking at the world through the eyes of an emotionally and intellectually crippled person. While folks have ripped on AS Part I, I don’t get the sense it at all captures the genuine looniness of Rand.
The only downside to Atlas’ failure is that now, no one will put a gun to Steve Ditko’s head and force him to sign over the rights for a Mr. A movie.
