If I remember the story correctly....

Ayn Rand said that the Fountainhead was rejected by about a dozen publishers, and when it was published it started slowly, then grew into a sensation by word of mouth.

When she published Atlas Shrugged, she was warned by her editor that it would not be a commercial success because of all the philosophy, speeches, etc. that would turn the reader off. So the book was published without much fanfare, but its' sales grew because of word of mouth. Now, 53 years later, it's still being printed in hardcover...almost unheard of for a novel. It turns out that the 'experts' were not so expert after all.

Maybe the movie, if well done, will be the same.
