Reading the Screen: Atlas Shrugging
Posted by: David Pitt

Last June — right here, as a matter of fact — I mentioned that Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand’s 1957 doorstop-sized novel, was being made into a two-part feature film.

The trailer is now online:

I have to say — ouch, this hurts — I think I might have been wrong. I called the novel “utterly unfilmable,” but it looks like director Paul Johansson might have cracked it. Splitting the book into two movies is a smart idea, and the trailer looks good. It makes me want to see the movie.

Check it out. Does it make you excited about the movie, too?
