Who Is John Galt?

'Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?' Trailer Features Romance and Ron Paul (Exclusive)

The politically charged movie opens about seven weeks ahead of midterm elections
The newest trailer for Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt? focuses on the steamy romantic relationship between the title character and protagonist Dagny Taggart, and features a quick image of former presidential candidate Ron Paul making his acting debut.

In the two-minute trailer, Taggart, played by Laura Regan, is in a plane wreck that brings her to the mysterious Galt, played by Kristoffer Polaha. The two get to know each other, then, the video abruptly switches to politics.

That's when former Republican congressman Paul, playing a television commentator in the film, is seen on a TV screen saying: "Millions of people are sick and tired of the endless wars, the poverty that is coming, the attacks on our civil liberties."

Dr. Paul himself quoted in this movie...How cool is THAT?!

Can't wait to see it. Saw parts 1 and 2 of course.

I find it interesting that they can't keep previous cast members.

Could it be they fear for their reputations since Hollywood really wants nothing to do with the philosophies of Ayn Rand???

Her kind of thought is an absolute anathema to Hollywood.

The one downer is that apparently the two rats hannity and Beck also get small appearences.

Neither of those to war-mongering A-Holes is anything near an Ayn Rand type of thinker.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Part 1 and 2

were formational for me and my development as Atlas Shrugged is for most. They were my first introduction. As films they fall short in different ways compared to box office, but they are not box office. If you take them for what they are they are quite enjoyable and a great introduction to Rand. They are worth your time.

Part I

was fantastic but i wasnt impressed with part II. It had a very different feel and I didnt care for the actors as much. ANyone else feel similar?

I sort of agree

although I enjoyed part one I found it far from fantastic. Part two I thought was lousy. Part three looks pretty bad too, I'm sorry to say.

Part 2

I liked part 2. The ending was awesome:"I am John Galt."I can't wait!

So frickin' excited!

I am a contributor and donate when I can. I think this trilogy might be the most important movie making in history, given that we are basically living in the world the book describes. Please donate if you can. If you haven't seen part I and II - they are on Netflix.
