Atlas Productions, LLC announced today the launch of its official Atlas Shrugged Part 2 Movie Website: AtlasShruggedPart2.com.
Producer Harmon Kaslow stated “The level of community involvement on the Atlas Shrugged Part 1 Website was tremendous. Site traffic leading up to release day was consistently high - in the 300,000 pageviews per day range. On April 15, 2011, however, the day the movie was released, we amazingly served up over 1.6 million.”
“While this new site is a fun first stop for hardcore fans, what we’re really looking forward to is introducing a whole new level of interaction to the entire fan base with what we have in store. It’s a huge plus having the extra time to build something truly special to really connect with fans.” said Communications Director Scott DeSapio.
Producer John Aglialoro added, “It’s time to get focused on Part Two. We’re all very excited about the prospect of communicating more directly with the fan base this time around. It was incredible to witness the community enthusiasm for Part 1 and we can’t wait to fully engage with the fans for Part 2.”
The producers have set a tentative theatrical release date of Fall 2012.
Atlas Shrugged Part 1, a wholly independent film, opened in theaters on April 15, 2011. According to Box Office Mojo, the film stands at #61 of the top 100 money-making films released in 2011.
