Release Date

Currently, the newest information about the movie’s release date is from John Aglialoro’s November 2010 interview with the Atlasphere, where he said:

TA: Is the movie still on track for a March release — or June, if accepted at a major festival?

Aglialoro: My initial and lingering aspiration was to have February 2, Ayn Rand’s birthday, be the date when it opens. And I recently saw Night of January 16th, Ayn Rand’s play that ran on Broadway in the ‘60s. So I wanted to have a private movie premiere the night of January 16, 2011, and a couple weeks later have the opening.

That sounds so tidy and poetically justifiable, but I think we’re going to have to take a look at March or April. No later than Tax Day, April 15.

UPDATE (Dec 2, 2010) – We have it on good authority that the producers are now, in fact, targeting April 15, 2011 — tax day — as the release date for the movie.

UPDATE (Dec 8, 2010) – The producers have now publicly confirmed that the target release date is April 15, 2011.

UPDATE (Apr 16, 2011) – Atlas Shrugged was released as scheduled in 299 theaters on April 15th. For its opening weekend, the independently produced and distributed movie accounted for a remarkable 15% of advance ticket sales at Fandango and received a positive rating from 85% of viewers at Rotten Tomatoes.

    Outstanding: we tea partiers/9-12 Project are planning on attending as a group.
    We will be looking forward to Atlas Shrugged II, III, etc. Hey, this may be as big as Harry Potter.

      Why would the Tea Partier’s like this movie? You’re all completely bat-shit insane.

      • Guest

        You obviously don’t know anything about Ayn Rand, her books, her philosophy or the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party to make such an ignorant statement. The movie is being released on April 15th, TaxDay. get a clue.

    Sorry, I don’t believe it. Hundreds of thousands (millions?) of us have been waiting for this movie all our adult lives (we read the book when we were in our late teens). We are the core of the opening weekend crowd that will determine whether the movie becomes a mainstream hit, or goes the way of “An American Carol.” If the producers haven’t posted even a teaser trailer by now (1/28), then either they’re not serious about a 4/15 release, or they haven’t thought through their marketing strategy.

      Adam, please realize that I agree with everything you said. I’m not in my late teens (when the book came out) but I’m in a healthy career and don’t want to see everything that my wife and I worked so hard for be taken by looters. Is there a possibility that since this is an independend film (again, reference Passion of the Christ) that the marketing of it is less of a concern moneywise to the makers of the film. The film will be released in a few select cities at first to get a feel of if it made money or not. Think “Blair Witch Project.” This movie is very important to get the Ayn Rand’s idea of Objectivism out especially now during our recession. We can lift ourselves out of this, sometimes it takes inspiration, and I hope this movie will do it for those who don’t want to read the book.

        it may be wishful thinking…..the movie is not important to Objectivism…..it is important to the investor who may believe the core Rand audience ( who by the way are not Libertarion ) will create a trend that leads to a broader audience and $$$$$………..and thanks to whomever hit me with a ‘like’…..it really hasn’t been that difficult……and I really did have conversations with her and her husband while in the USMC years ago….she assisted in a decision to make it a career…………P.S. first one I read was “We The Living”

    The trailer is well crafted and hopefully reflects the technical quality of the entire movie. Now what happens to Rand’s philosophical message is something else…

    I too (like some of those posting here) first read Rand in my mid-teens (16 in fact, and with Anthem – done in 1 hour! it was riveting) and have gone through many promises of films of Atlas Shrugged. I definitely am looking forward to seeing this production. It may even get me into a theater, something I’ve not had any desire to do for many years – willing to wait for the few DVDs deemed worth buying.

    The trailer was good for those of us who know the story, but it doesn’t capture the story for people who are not familiar, and seems confusing. The trailers should magnify in Hollywood style the awesome stakes, the destiny of this country and mankind. As far as releasing in April, unless this film has a distributor and a campaign, it will not get into theatres except as a side release, a fill until the big summer product is released in May, and there too is iffy. Working in the film exhibition business most of these dates are planned a year ahead at least, and not tossed off one’s wish list as symbolic gestures. The fact of Tax Day is nice, but the issue is business of the film, and a diligent and well planned effort and campaign are certainly required for the magnitude of this project, not the simplistic “toss it to the fates” that seems to prevail at the moment. This can be grand, and the time in history is certainly ripe, but controversy should surround this opening, as the book had and still possesses profound reality of the present condition, but also gives hope in truth. Please, seek a distributor, certainly the book has sold enough for any studio big or small to pick up the distribution.

    Atlas Shrugged is the kind of story that can can be easily destroyed by either incompetence or by malice. If the producers really understood what Rand was saying it can be a great movie and a major game changer for the politics of the day. If the movie is done properly the audience will leave the theater both informed and terrified. One thing to watch for is how vehement the progressives and other Rand haters decry the film. The more they hate it the better it is likely to be.

    Are there any plans to release the movie in major Canadian cities? I used to live in NYC and Denver but am now in Vancouver. If not, will there be a DVD release?

    • Anonymous

      My guess is that it will be released in a few select USA cities. And depending on the money they make will depend on if they expand to many more US cities, or international cities. Being that there’s rumors for a part 2 and 3, I’d be very dissapointed if it didn’t do well and we couldn’t see the end of the book in movie form (for goodness sakes the last Harry Potter book was done in 2 movies). So my Canadian Friend, I would start using your social networking and shout from on top of the Twitter and Facebook mountain to get people to see this movie.

    I am waiting anxiously to see the movie – am partly through the book, but finding that it is a dead bore, largely an exercise in egoism – sure, who of us hasn’t thought “If i could just keep all these other moochers from stealing all my productivity, I could be truly great! Why, I should go on strike!”, but a second’s thought reveals that that kind of society absolutely won’t work – the selfish individualist society is in fact what we have now – and if we can’t altruistically work together for common good we are doomed.  She herself admitted that it was ‘unrestrained’ (that is, she knew it was wrong, so don’t take it too seriously).  I’m just waiting for the ‘entertaining’ part.

    PLEASE make it available in DVD ASAP. And PLEASE follow it with Part II and Part III. Then it should be followed by a film rendition of The Fountainhead.

      Or….just read the novel.

      And, keep in mind, the novel, like all intellectual work on human interaction/nature/society, is a best-attempt, a good effort.

      It isn’t the final word.  This is just mathematical.  We are not deterministic (pre-determined).  Since we have free will, we are not predictable, thus….every system of specifying human nature short of the physical is a lot like long-range weather forecasting.
