Atlas Shrugged, Part 1: Trailer Transcript

Of course, the trailer is a lot more than just what you can read in the transcript, but here it is!

Man: Midas Mulligan
Mulligan: Who’s asking?
Man: Someone who knows what it’s like to work for himself, and not let others feed off the profits off his energy.
Mulligan: Who are you?
Eddie: We found a note.
Dagny: What did it say?
Eddie: It said, Who is John Galt?
[suspenseful music]
Newscast: …in one of the worst railroad accidents in recent history, a Taggart Transcontinental freight train has crashed and derailed.
Dagny: I have to get the Rio Norte completely rerailed in nine months
and I’m gambling your new metal can do what you say it can.
Rearden: I’m staking my business on it.
James: Nobody’s used Rearden Metal.
Why do we have to be the first?
Larkin: Well, they say you’re intractable, you’re ruthless;
your only goal is to make money…
Rearden: My only goal IS to make money.
Larkin: Yeah, but you shouldn’t say it.
Boyle: If we’re gonna’ bring Rearden down, we should do it from the inside.
Mouch: I am placing a moratorium on all railroad parts.
Potter: We can’t afford to allow the expansion of a company which produces too much.
Mouch: A federal tax will be applied to all steel mills.
Rearden: They are not getting my metal!
Dagny: We’ll find a way to fix this.
Wyatt: If you and your brother try to undermine me, or go to the government
Dagny: Maybe you should let me…
Wyatt: Maybe you should let me finish speaking!
Rearden: battle. What battle?
Rearden: What is wrong with the world?
Larkin: Why ask useless questions?
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?
Who is John Galt?
Dagny: In order to save my family’s business,
I’m going to have to abandon it.
I’m going to take a leave… start my own company.
James: And what are going to call this new line of yours?
Dagny: The John Galt Line.
Brady: I’m not going to allow you to run that train.
Dagny: You can do whatever you want with your men, Mr. Brady, but that train will run if I have to drive the damn thing myself.
Rearden: What we’re doing: my metal, your railway. It’s us who move the world.
Dagny: If you double-cross me, I will destroy you.
Dagny: To a successful business partnership
Rearden: I’ll drink to that.

  1. After “Rearden: battle. What battle?” there’s another line missing. I think d#Anconia says something to the extent of “all the other ones against you”. i’,m not quite sure about the exact wording, since it’s not very good to hear and I’m not a native speaker
