->''[[{{ArcWords}} Who is John Galt?]]''

''Atlas Shrugged'' is the first of an expected trilogy of films covering Creator/AynRand's book ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''. It was released on April 15, 2011.

''Atlas Shrugged II'' was shot with a completely new cast, and opened on October 12, 2012.

''Atlas Shrugged III'' is due out in September 12th of 2014 thanks to a very successful Kickstarter campaign (one of the most successful at the time). Given [[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo the subheading for this film]], "Who is John Galt?", it will likely involve solely Galt's AuthorFilibuster - though what they cut out of the six hour monologue remains to be seen.

!!These films provide examples of:
* BigNo: Dagny, after seeing Wyatt's oil fields in flame beyond a sign reading, "I am leaving it as I found it. Take over. It's yours."
* CastingGag: One of Dagny's enemies is played the actor who was both [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Quark]], an alien whose [[PlanetOfHats "Hat"]] is greed and business prowess, and [[VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}} Andrew Ryan]], a parody of Ayn Rand.
* TheCameo: [[Creator/PennandTeller Teller]], [[Main/FoxNewsChannel Sean Hannity, Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, and Tamara Holder]] make brief appearances in Part II.
* CoincidentalBroadcast: Subverted. Eddie calls Dagny and tells her to turn on the TV for a report on a train wreck, but the first channel she turns to is just giving the stock report.
* CaliforniaDoubling: One of the great things about this movie's depiction of Wisconsin and its sequel's depiction of Woodstock, NY and Pittsburgh, PA is [[Film/AustinPowers how they look NOTHING at all like Southern California]].
* InMediasRes: ''Part II'' opens with Dagny chasing Quentin Daniels in her plane and then spends most of the remainder of the movie showing [[HowWeGotHere how things got there]].
* TheMountainsOfIllinois: Or rather the ''lack'' of hills at Pittsburgh Municipal Airport in II.
* SchizoTech: Set in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2016]], trains reign supreme due to Galt's plan exacerbating the 2011 economic troubles, resulting in oil shortages.
* SequelHook: Invoked, as it's supposed to be a trilogy of films.
* WhoAreYou: Midas Mulligan's last words before he vanishes.
