Atlas Shrugged Flops On Box Office
Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”, a novel that has been a popular sci-fi/political work for years on end got it’s incarnation into a motion picture but it looks more like Atlas fell and dropped the Earth.
The movie is doing worse than badly. The only thing worse is if a meteor hit the theater where it plays and in the singular too. That’s how fast the screens are dropping as the movie only made $879,000 after its premiere.
There are online comic books and e-books about dog grooming that made more money than that during the same period.
Stories of newspapers and movie critic websites not even sending it’s critics to review the movie are shoving it into the realm of the late great Ed Wood Jr., the man voted the worst movie director of all time.
The movie is losing theaters left and right and offhand no one can remember who actually stars in the movie without having to go to one of the movie databases to find out.
How a major novel with it’s historic impact could end up in a situation this bad is going to take cinema experts some depth to uncover. It may just be a case of the movie company, whomever they are, having bitten off more than they could chew and that’s a lot of uneaten popcorn.
