'Atlas Shrugged: Part 3' Confirmed, World Doesn't Care Enough To Even Shrug

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.

I saw and enjoyed both Part 1 and 2 of Atlas Shrugged - I notice that the majority of the criticism of the movies comes from those who dislike Ayn Rand's ideas but are unable to refute them.

The entire point of Ayn Rand's novel "The Fountainhead" -- which came before Atlas Shrugged -- is that the creative artist should do the work they want to do, regardless of if world rewards them for it or not.

I watched both 1 & 2 and found both quite ENLIGHTENING. they are filled with american values and enough "action" to keep the storyline moving. both have left me with a desire to know whats next and longing to stand up for something as great as the two main characters who are both free market millionaires...

Do I remember your insipid, pointless screed, David? No. That's because I read it and immediately processed it as rubbish and shat it out to leave room for something worth remembering.

I watched both parts on sunday back to back and was more impressed than after watching the big screen versions when they came out ! These movies should be required viewing for ALL school kids . I am not swayed by some ignorant hollywood wanna be insiders biased opinion .
