First Trailer for Sci-Fi Drama 'Atlas Shrugged' Premiered


A young executive struggles to keep her railroad company alive despite the disappearance of her best and most competent workers during difficult economic times in America.

"Atlas Shrugged" has been previewed in a trailer. It follows Dagny Taggart who runs Taggart Transcontinental, the largest remaining railroad company in America, with intelligence, courage and integrity, despite the systematic disappearance of her best and most competent workers.

She is drawn to industrialist Henry Rearden, one of the few men whose genius and commitment to his own ideas match her own. Rearden's super-strength metal alloy, Rearden Metal, holds the promise that innovation can overcome the slide into anarchy.

Using the untested Rearden Metal, they rebuild the critical Taggart rail line in Colorado and pave the way for oil titan Ellis Wyatt to feed the flame of a new American Renaissance. Hope rises again, when Dagny and Rearden discover the design of a revolutionary motor based on static electricity - in an abandoned engine factory.

Based on Ayn Rand novel of the same title, "Atlas Shrugged" was once aimed to be Angelina Jolie-starring vehicle. Taylor Schilling finally takes the key role of Dagny Taggart, with Grant Bowler and Graham Beckel playing Henry Rearden and Ellis Wyatt respectively.

Paul Johansson came in as the replacement of Stephen Polk, who ditched his helming duty just two weeks before the movie started filming. Brian Patrick O'Toole and John Aglialoro write the script for the movie, which is said to be made into a trilogy similar to the three part structure of the book. "Atlas Shrugged" part 1 will open in limited U.S. theaters on April 15.
