Hollywood Reporter quote on Atlas Shrugged, Part 1

From an article in The Hollywood Reporter entitled How ‘Atlas Shrugged’ Shocked Hollywood’s Marketing Machine It’s a passionate bunch that didn’t need much encouragement. On Monday, for example, a caller to Dennis Miller’s radio show said he saw the film opening night and purchased another ticket on his way out of the theater that he […]

Who else knows where they will watch Atlas Shrugged on April 15th?

Since I last posted about distribution, the number of theaters showing Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 on April 15th has jumped to 300! That said, there has been very little spending to promote the movie (relative to what gets spent on movies in general). It’s vital that you get out to the theaters. Take your friends, […]

Atlas Shrugged comments from director Paul Johansson

I think Paul Johansson‘s commentary is interesting and supportive of Ayn Rand’s philosophy. I am looking forward to seeing his work this Friday. Hopefully, it will draw many into the conversation between like-minded enthusiasts of individual liberty in Christian, Objectivist, and Libertarian camps. I first discovered Ayn Rand’s works at the age of seventeen. The […]

The Soul of Atlas: A Discussion of the movie, Atlas Shrugged, Part 1

Come join us to discuss the Gospel and Objectivism on Wednesday, April 13th: two days before the movie hits the theaters. Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged, is coming to theaters on April 15th.

Fear Not! See the movie!

“There was little time left for even truncated versions of Rand’s hallmark speeches. We are left with protagonists who seem to hold Randian views but we never hear why… The movie version of Atlas Shrugged feels flat because we are given so few opportunities to get inside the heads of the characters and empathize with […]

John Aglialoro, producer of Atlas Shrugged, interviewed on Fox Business News

John Aglialoro, producer of Atlas Shrugged, Part 1, was interviewed on Fox Business News, Friday. The show is Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano. His questions were good, like he truly understands the message. The clip from the movie was Orren Boyle, James Taggart, Paul Larson, and Wesley Mouch, hatching political plots against Hank Rearden.

Ayn Rand and the Origin of the Universe

For the forty years that I have known him, John has described himself as an “atheist,” not an “agnostic.” “The question about God’s existence is not open for discussion. We don’t need God to explain the origins of the universe. Let’s move on with our lives and not concern ourselves with what is an irrelevant […]

One of the worst opinion articles I have read…

It has been a while since I have read an article so misguided. Nicolaus Mills seems like an intelligent person, but he seems oblivious to his philosophical bias. I appreciate his appeal for patriotism. He assumes that his readers will desire patriotism, and I like that. But he presumes that he or anyone else is […]

Interview with John Aglialoro, producer of Atlas Shrugged, Part 1

In an interview with Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 Producer John Aglialoro, Amanda Carey of The Daily Caller asked ten questions. My personal favorite, having seen the film and met Nathaniel Brandon and Barbara Brandon at the screening, was this one: 10. What do you think Ayn Rand would think of the film? I’ve pondered that question […]
