From yesterday’s press release:
Today, “The Strike” Productions, Inc. announced the release of an unseen clip from the upcoming Atlas Shrugged movie. The full scene, pulled directly from the film, is to be available on the movie’s YouTube channel at 9 am EST on Presidents Day, Monday February 21, 2011.
“We’re sure our fans will appreciate our response to the vigorous online debate over the film,” said Kaslow in reference to the large number of comments resulting from the +650,000 views of the YouTube hosted trailer.
Kaslow continued, “We want the fans of the book to know we appreciate their passion and excitement about the movie.”
The released scene shows steel maven Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler), giving his wife Lillian (Rebecca Wisocky) a gift made from his controversial new metal.
“Audiences will find that the direction, writing, performance, and production design embody an accurate and contemporary depiction of Ayn Rand’s original scene from the novel. Ayn’s courageous dialog finally shines bright on the silver screen,” according to Kaslow.
We’ll post the clip as soon as it becomes available.
UPDATE (2011 Feb 21) – You can now watch the clip here.
