Atlas Shrugged, Part Two - Trailer

If only John Galt had a Facebook account they wouldn't have all this trouble finding him.

Nice to see that Red Alert 2 acting experience paying off.

wouldn't it be nice if they made a movie where altruism doesn't change into oppressive communism, and where the self-rightious "liberators" just don't wanna share?

I dunno, to me, it just seems this kinda thing has been done before, albeit a different angle.

Actually, it's the rare movie that shows anyone involved with a big corporation as something other than some king of baby-raping, utterly corrupt bastard. And besides, Hollywood wouldn't so much as touch these movies (for rather obvious reasons), so I think the stray independent movie now and then that shows a left-wing government as the bad guys isn't going to drastically change the cultural zeitgeist.

Dear MovieBob: Please take this waste of celluloid and jam it in to an industrial-sized Cuisinart in an upcoming review.

there was a part one?

Whatever. It's a conservative movie, so I wouldn't like it. Simple as that.

So, is Bioshock the video game version of the movie?

Not even close. :P

OT: Why is there another one? Just... Why? The original did terribly, both with audiences and with critics. What demanded they make a sequel that will undoubtedly end up the same as the first? Masochism? A severe hatred of money and success? I just don't get it...

I'm not even remotely interested in anything so steeped in 1920s economics and philosophy. The fact that there's been an attempt to modernise it especially does not sit well with me. These philosophies are outdated, proven wrong, and a product of greedy fantasies of endless growth in a world where resources remain, in truth, very limited.

Mannhammer:

No, BioShock is actually an example of the failings of any world made based on Ayn Rand's philosophy. So that would oppose it to any book by her, and by extension any movie based on said book.

I really hope the words "We're allies you maniac!" are said in this. Not that I'd watch it, but still.

Its a she actually.

Also did the first one do really well on streaming or will the third film be filmed with card board sets. Though it would make an interesting way of showing the lose of reality in the film.

The book that this film was based upon was written in 1957.

Andrey Ryan's character was inspired by this book, as was his philosophy.

You honestly thought that they didn't know that?

I think they smashed part two and three into one movie...
