Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 (US) in November
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the US DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 on 8th November 2011. The first installment in a planned trilogy of films based on the novels by Ayn Rand.
Set in 2016, the country is on the verge of economic collapse. Young executive, Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling) runs one of the largest remaining railroads despite her inept CEO brother, James (Matthew Marsden). To save the railroad from financial ruin, Dagny seeks out entrepreneurial industrialist Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler), whose super-strength metal alloy holds the promise of the future. As government interference abound continues and the country’s most competent and productive workers systematically disappear, Dagny refuses to give up. As she bears witness to seeing the motor of the world stopped, Dagny increasingly hears people reciting: Who is John Galt?
