Atlas Shrugged Adaptation Earned Estimated $1.7 Million in Limited Release

Part one of Atlas Shrugged hit 300 theaters this weekend, earning an estimated $1.7 million in an attempt to adapt Ayn Rand‘s sprawling novel.

Producer Harmon Kaslow told Box Office Mojo that the release could be expanded to 1,000 theaters. We’ve embedded the trailer above–did anybody watch this movie?

Box Office Mojo added: “For a pure independent release, Atlas Shrugged: Part I‘s opening was fine. But for the first-ever adaptation of Ayn Rand’s influential mega-selling 1957 novel that had far more media hype than any other independent movie could dream of, it was disappointing.”
