Steve Peters Commentary - #2853 - VIDEO: Atlas is Shrugging - Freedom Works (2) Atlas Shrugged: The Documentary (3) Box Office Power of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged Baffles Insiders, Chicago Sun-Times


Atlas is Shrugging - Freedom Works - SP: The most relevant movie of our time. This is a superb movie trailer from FreedomWorks, interlaced with actual statements from Obama and Barney Frank...chilling how closely the movie based on a book written in 1957 parallels what is happening in America TODAY. Are you watching in Washington D.C.? Have you seen the movie yet? Attendance is gaining steam, fueled by the multimillions that have read her book over the last half a century, plus internet marketing and word of mouth through the tea party movement.  “Atlas Shrugged” Now Available on Kindle!Ayn Rand’s classic novels “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead” are now available on Kindle through Amazon.com. The electronic books can be purchased for $9.99.  This clip has received 95,988 views.



Video: Atlas Shrugged: The Documentary - This clip has received 41,940 views. Who is John Gault? - Box Office Power of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged Baffles Insiders - Chicago Sun-Times - The power of Ayn Rand devotees has impressed some Hollywood distribution executives, who took note of the hefty $5,640 per-theater average scored by “Atlas Shrugged: Part 1” during its opening weekend. “Shocking,” one executive said about the healthy business the low-budget film has been doing, considering its “awful” marketing plan. Awful or not, business has been brisk enough for producers Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro to expand from 299 theaters to 425 this weekend and to 1,000 by the end of the month. They don’t have enough film prints to fill all the orders.

Ayn Rand's message resonates to those who want freedom to succeed or fail on their own, believing that what they create is theirs, not to be taken by the force of government or others, for society's benefit, just because "they need it." As I mentioned in a previous editorial when Atlas Shrugged first opened, this movie will steadily build by word of mouth, resulting in very large total attendance numbers over an extended run. When released, Atlas Shrugged DVD sales will be huge. Hopefully, the movie will soon be appearing in Charlottesville, because the high attendance numbers will be hard for theater owners to ignore. Another of Ayn Rand's great books, The Fountainhead(over 6.5 million copies sold) was made into a movie in 1949 and is still available for purchase on DVD for under $9. You can also be find the movie on sites like NETFLIX. It is an excellent family movie, that is both entertaining and instructive. Below is the speech from Ayn Rand's protagonist in The FountainHead, Howard Roarke. The short Youtube video is excellent, and will give you a good idea on the underlying theme of Atlas Shrugged.

WHO IS JOHN GALT?...See the Movie and Read the Book....7,000,000+ copies have been sold. 500,000 copies sold in 2009. For the first time ever, the combined sales of her four most popular novels exceeded 1,000,000+ copies in 2009.
