"It's called Atlas Shrugged, and judging by the box office figures, so did the audience."
—Mr. Mendo's Hack Attack

Atlas Shrugged: Part I is the first of an expected trilogy of films covering Ayn Rand's book Atlas Shrugged. It was released on April 15, 2011. The film was panned critically and was a flop financially.

Atlas Shrugged: Part II is being shot with a completely new cast, and is set to open November 6, 2012.

This film provides examples of: Edit

  • Big No: Dagny, after seeing Wyatt's oil fields in flame beyond a sign reading, "I am leaving it as I found it. Take over. It's yours."
  • Casting Gag: Possible: One of Dagny's enemies is played the actor who was both Quark, an alien who's "Hat" is greed and business prowess, and Andrew Ryan, a parody of Ayn Rand.
  • Coincidental Broadcast: Subverted. Eddie calls Dagny and tells her to turn on the TV for a report on a train wreck, but the first channel she turns to is just giving the stock report.
  • California Doubling: One of the great things about this movie's depiction of Wisconsin is how it looks NOTHING at all like Southern California.
  • The Other Darrin: The entire cast was replaced for the second film.
  • Schizo-Tech: Set in 2016, trains reign supreme due to Galt's plan exaberating the 2011 economic troubles, resulting in oil shortages.
  • Sequel Hook: Invoked, as it's supposed to be a trilogy of films.
  • Who Are You?: Midas Mulligan's last words before he vanishes.
