Atlas Shrugged Movie Hits Theatres

Worlds Biggest Message Says Read Ayn Rand

"Atlas Shrugged," the movie adaptation of Ayn Rand's 1957 classic, just released its first trailer on Friday.

The novel, which centers around railroad executive Dagny Taggart as she fights to keep her business alive as American society crumbles around her, has become a favorite of conservatives, who value the book's free-market themes, and the trailer was recently screened at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

The movie, which stars Taylor Schilling as Taggart and was directed by Paul Johansson, will be split into two parts, with part one scheduled to open in limited release on April 15, 2011.
