CULVER CITY, Calif., April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Based on the film’s recent fan-based grassroots uprising, “The Strike” Productions today announced it will be expanding the initial release of the Atlas Shrugged movie from 11 markets to over 50.“AMC called directly to report their online contact system was being hit too hard. They requested we direct traffic to a specific address just to handle the volume,” said producer Harmon Kaslow.

“While it’s unusual for showtimes to be listed this early, the doors of the exhibitors have been thoroughly beaten down by Ayn’s fans. Many of the theaters are now posting showtimes so tickets can be pre-purchased,” continued Kaslow. “And, theaters and showtimes are now being reported as sold-out.”

Fandango.com lists the 7:00pm showing at Regal Cinema’s Union Square Theater in New York City as “sold out.”

“Our online ‘Demand Atlas!’ service has been receiving an incredible amount of traffic since launch,” said Scott DeSapio, Online Marketing Director of the film. “After toping the charts at another web site as the ‘Hottest Demand Worldwide’ for more than a week, we decided to build our own in-house ‘Demand Atlas!’ feature to better service Ayn Rand fans. We’re completely blown away by the response.”

    It is great to see such a reception for a movie that will be loathed by the extreme left. This film has at its roots a very important message about the success of capitalism and the tyranny and failures of socialism. I hope that this gets world-wide viewing because in this day and age movies have much more impart on the population and do books. It is important that the youth in the United States and around the world learn about what economic and social systems work and which don’t. What better way than to expose the young people to Atlas Shrugged? I hope part 2 will be out soon so the enthusiasm remains!
