Wow, looks good. I do think they will make it into a business people are greedy scum movie though, or at least some socialist media hack will get that meme going.

yeah, you haven't watched the behind the scenes? Did you even watch the opening? about not letting others live off of your production? Man, this is the movie I've been waiting for since watching that Wall Street crap.

Someone in the media will spin it and turn the main characters into evil people. I just don't think it will be as nice and in your face as V for Vendetta, lets go blow up parliment because government is to big, not to mention the fact that I don't really have faith in the IQ of mainstream movie goers to actually get it unless the message is in your face over and over and over. Great preview and it looks like it might get the message out their but I'll wait until it comes out and I watch it before I cream in my panties, lord knows the ability of Hollywood to fuck things up beggers belief.

Ayn Rand's characters are already considered evil (or at least sociopaths) by many. Don't see how this will change anything... haters gonna hate.

I'm just glad Angelina Jolie ain't in it, I thought at one time she was being touted to be in it, that would have been ugly. She needs to leave Hollywood and go run an orphanage.

Haven't looked forward to seeing a movie this much for a long time. Hope it gets to the theatres in Norway.

The latter seems almost inevitable, but the former?  Seems like her foundation would have to have gotten pretty lax in their duties to allow producers who would make the movie say the exact opposite of what it has been well-known to debunk for decades.

I read somewhere this is a limited release on April 15? I hope it ends up being a national release, because I know the book is too long for most to read. Hell, I only read half of it before getting the cliffnotes.

Damn, this means I have to read the book now.
You better get started.  It's a looooooooong read.  Worth it, but long.

I would chisel away at it, then put it down for months, and eventually pick it up again and chisel away through another chapter or two, then put it down.  It's kind of like the Bible.  Didn't like it but it felt important to read it because so many other people had and it had made a strong impression on them.  I should point out that I did like the premise.  It was a great idea for a story.  Just thought it was horribly written.

The first time I read it I sort of skimmed it, Still took a week.
The second time I read it very carefully, and studied all the key speeches, I also tended to watch the dramatisations on youtube of whatever speech I was on. They are all there and some are very well done. My favorite is a little unknown, this one.

On the second reading I reread the "Galts Gulch" part several times.  :)

First, I love Rand's writing style (except for the monologue parts that drag on). Second, you can give the distributors the contact information to your local theater and they will call and try to set up release at that theater. I'll try to find a link later.

I expect the final product will be popular with all except those that are already beyond the "event horizon". This would likely include Judea-Christian ethics as children, any persons that benefit as moochers; from something as simple as the government cheese of a Pell Grant to more substantial looting. Basically: everyone who goes to movies as entertainment.
Creators, individualists and Randian objectivists are not likely to make this movie profitable. Bad math I think.

I went the audio-book route. I spend most of my day reading text in my business, fuck if im gonna read a almost 1100 pages of written text when I get home.. I liked it, but it was a little bit too detailed and rambling about minor details that didnt really pertain to the meat of the story. Maybe Rand was trippin' on acid when she wrote it, I dont know.

A must read, especially for statist type people. If this doesn't make it sink in, nothing will.
