Atlas Shrugged Movie
October 12, 2012 by staff
Atlas Shrugged Movie, The second installment of the “Atlas Shrugged” trilogy hits theaters on Friday, and despite the iconic nature of the Ayn Rand book, Part II remains shrouded in secrecy ahead of it’s premiere. The film has yet to be reviewed, apparently on purpose, because of the hammering Part I took from mainstream movie critics last year.
“The integrity of the critics are going off a cliff,” producer John Aglialaro told FOX411 Pop tarts column. “Why should I give them the sword and they are just going to use to decapitate me with?”
Matt Atchity, editor-in-chief of the movie review aggregation site, Rotten Tomatoes, said Aglialaro’s trepidation could be well-founded.
“It’s sometimes a fear due to the general conception that most of the press leans to the left, and this film obviously leans very far to the other side. It is rare that you will get reviews of overtly political movies without reviewers’ personal politics coming into it,” Atchity said. “So if critics want to review it, they’ll have to pay and see it at the same time as everyone else.”
Iindustry experts told us when it comes to certain political films, and especially ones that are given the thumbs up from the Tea Party and similar groups, sometimes no reviews are better than skewed ones.
“There is almost no media interest in the movie, and that is no surprise given how the first part was treated. Hollywood wants it to go away – quickly,” said Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture for Media Research Center. “The movie is already a success just by making it to the theater. Whenever the media get around to acknowledging this film exists, they are sure to attack it.”
