WHO IS JOHN GALT?
Ayn Rand’s Suspenseful Bestseller
ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART I
Arrives On Blu-ray and DVD November 8
Los Angeles, CA (September 22, 2011) – Powerful forces trigger a global revolution when the highly-anticipated film adaptation of The New York Times-bestselling novel, ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART I, emerges on Blu-ray and DVD November 8 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Widely considered to be one of the most influential books of the last century, this is the first installment in a planned trilogy from critically-acclaimed author Ayn Rand (The Fountainhead). ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART I takes a talented young cast to explore the themes of individualism, socialism, and anarchy.
Set in 2016, the country is on the verge of economic collapse. Young executive, Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling, “Mercy”) runs one of the largest remaining railroads despite her inept CEO brother, James (Matthew Marsden, Resident Evil: Extinction). To save the railroad from financial ruin, Dagny seeks out entrepreneurial industrialist Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler, “True Blood”), whose super-strength metal alloy holds the promise of the future. As government interference abound continues and the country’s most competent and productive workers systematically disappear, Dagny refuses to give up. As she bears witness to seeing the motor of the world stopped, Dagny increasingly hears people reciting: Who is John Galt?
The ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART I features supporting performances by Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class), Graham Beckel (Brokeback Mountain), Jsu Garcia (“Without a Trace”), and Michael Lerner (A Serious Man).
Available on Blu-ray and DVD in the U.S. only, special features include an in-depth look at the identity of “John Galt.” Pre-book is October 12, 2011.
