Remember the first two Atlas Shrugged movies? No, of course you don't, because you didn't see them. They're so boring you probably don't remember them even if you did see them. They're a perfect example of what you shouldn't do when adapting a novel, replicating that philosophy in the most turgid and sanitized way possible. You have to demonstrate your ideas through actions, not by having your characters give philosophy lectures. That's what is in store for those who decide to suffer through Atlas Shrugged Part 3, though.
The first two films made a combined box office gross of 8 million, which is less than either film's budget. The entire of point of Atlas Shrugged is the virtues of a free market, so it's a bit hilarious to see them so blatantly disregard the fact that nobody wants to pay to see their movies.
Atlas Shrugged takes place in a dystopian future where a collectivist government obsessed with regulation has caused the best and brightest of society to go on strike, going into hiding with a mysterious figure known as John Galt.
It will hit a grand totel of 150 theaters in the summer of 2014.
