Sneak Peek "Atlas Shrugged Part 1"

Sneak Peek the new poster and trailer supporting the $5 million "Atlas Shrugged Part I", the adaptation of author Ayn Rand's 1957 novel.

The new film is scheduled for release April 15, directed by Paul Johansson, starring Taylor Schilling, Grant Bowler, Matthew Marsden, Graham Beckel, Edi Gathegi, Jsu Garcia and Michael Lerner.

In "Atlas Shrugged Part 1", 'Dagny Taggart' (Schilling) runs 'Taggart Transcontinental', the only remaining railroad company in America, despite the disappearance of her best workers.

She becomes attracted to 'Henry Rearden' (Bowler) and his invention of the super-strength metal alloy 'Rearden Metal', that holds the promise that innovation can overcome a slide into anarchy.

"Atlas Shrugged" also introduces a theory of sex based in broader ethical and psychological theories. Rather than considering sexual desire a debasing animal instinct, Rand portrays it as the highest celebration of human values.
