"Atlas Shrugged" DVDs Being Replaced Due to Error

Posted: November 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Atlas Shrugged" DVDs Being Replaced Due to ErrorSubmit Comment
"Atlas Shrugged" hit stores on November 8th, and now the company behind the film is looking to replace 100,000 DVDs and Blu-rays that were packaged with an inaccurate synopsis.

The movie is based on Ayn Rand's 1957 novel, which is known for advocating a society driven by rational self-interest. But the DVD and Blu-ray covers contradict that, stating: "Ayn Rand's timeless novel of courage and SELF-SACRIFICE comes to life..."

"As we all well know, the ideas brought to life in 'Atlas Shrugged' are entirely antithetical to the idea of 'self-sacrifice' as a virtue," said producer Harmon Kaslow. "'Atlas' is quite literally a story about the dangers of self-sacrifice. The error was an unfortunate one and fans of Ayn Rand and 'Atlas' have every right to be upset... and we have every intention of making it right."

He added: "We needed to quickly correct this mistake and I'm pleased we did." The new title sheets will read: "Ayn Rand's timeless novel of rational SELF-INTEREST comes to life..."

Well....there's really nothing wrong with what was written.
It's technically true, but when you preface with the word "courage", you sort of assume self-sacrafice is meant in the same vain.

I really hope Atlas Shrugged does really well on DVD. I saw it in theatres and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. Jsu Garcia was wonderful as Francisco D'Anconia and I thought they did just such a wonderful job with Ayn Rand's classic. (I worked with Jsu Garcia on the feature film he did after Atlas Shrugged - The Wayshower) Atlas Shrugged has such a powerful message, so appropriate for today and the world we're living in right now. Definitely feels like there are many wonderful movies coming out helping to lift consciousness. I mean Harry Potter, while they're fantasy, they're really bringing an incredible message for both young and old - about going within and finding your strength and being the change and goodness you want more of in your world. And Inception, Adjustment Bureau, and more.
Working on the movie 'The Wayshower', (inspired by the life of John-Roger) with Jsu Garcia, (and favorites Academy Award nominees Eric Roberts and Sally Kirkland) was incredible and I really hope it gets massive attention when it's released next March. It's so courageous and forward thinking in regards to a very metaphysical abstract portrayal of the journey we all take throughout life and the relationships we have with special mentors and teachers - special Wayshowers that enrich and change our lives forever. I loved this movie so much. So different and ground breaking. Check it out: http://thewayshower.com (sign up for free fanletter including free screening invites)
