[Editor's comment: Is this an official trailer? Maybe Maus Merryjest could answer this question...]
For more comments on the film, read the following posts:

- Geek movie stuff - Atlas Shrugged by Jim W. - Anti-Strib.com.
I don't have high hopes for the movie due to certain "elements" involved in "producing" the film. For a clue, read the following excerpt from Diana Hsieh's post, Ed Hudgins Does Stand-Up Comedy:
I can't imagine that TOC's leadership would be eager to remind its donors of the old boondoggle -- unless attempting to change the name, perhaps in conjunction with the supposedly impending movie of Atlas Shrugged. (If that happens, it'll be worse than you think: imagine DVD inserts for more information from The Atlas Society and a bonus feature of commentary on Objectivism from David Kelley.) Of course, changing the name of your organization twice in less than two decades is no way to inspire confidence in your donors. In fact, it suggests that you don't have the slightest idea what you're doing. Perhaps that's why the first name change (from Institute for Objectivist Studies to The Objectivist Center) was announced with much fanfare, whereas this second name change seems to be sneaking in the back door. (NoodleFood, 05/08/06.)
But to end on a positive note, I think that a movie based on Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged, will be good for the publisher Penguin Group in the near future and for the Ayn Rand Institute in the long run.
[Editor's note: Will you join the Facebook group, I was an Objectivist before Atlas Shrugged was a movie?]

Comment by Andy Clarkson:
This doesn't seem like a real trailer. Isn't that the voice of Edward Herrmann?
Seems like someone jammed something together from an audio book and Second Life (or something similar to it.)
