After posting teasers for the last few weeks, the producers of Atlas Shrugged Part II have released the trailer for the film, which is due to come out on October 12th. Filming began on the movie back in April. Reason stopped back the set in July to give us an idea of what was going on and to let fans meet some of the cast, which has been completely revamped since the first installment.
As noted before, many of us who are fans of Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged, the book for which she is best known, are hoping for a better flick this time around. The first installment wasn’t terrible, but the such as the CGI and some of the actors left a lot to be desired.
Here is the trailer. Enjoy:
District B-13 is not an alien movie like District 9. Instead it is a 2004 French Film which reminds us that any government today against its own citizens just like the Nazis perpetrated agaisnt the Jews during WWII.
I give District B-13 ”3.5 beacons of Liberty out of five”. It has a great message about the evil that government will perpetrate against its own people. And that by exposing the dastardly plans of the politicians lives can be saved.
District B-13 is the name of the inner city slum near Paris that has been walled off by the French Government. It is an inner city war zone, where the drug dealers have taken over and all government presence has fled including the police. The innocent civilians are left in there with the drug dealers to fend for themselves.
One Resident Leito, played by one of the founders of Parkour, is a vigilante defending his building in District B-13 against Taha the local drug kingpin. The movie starts with Leito flushing down 2o kilos of Taha’s coke. Needless to say Taha doesn’t take too kindly to the destruction of his property and kidnaps Leito’s sister in retaliation.
Using awesome Parkour moves Leito infiltrates Taha’s lair, rescues his sister and escapes with Taha’s men in hot pursuit. Leito and his sister make it to the police station in the wall separating B-13 from the rest of Paris. There they hope to have the cops arrest Taha. But instead the cop in charge arrests Leito and allows Taha to take his sister back into District B-13.
While Michael Moore has been outspoken in his support of Occupy Wall Street — though he recently tried to play down the fact that he is part of the evil “1%,” the filmmaker took $1 million in film tax credits to make Capitalism: A Love Story:
Flint’s Michael Moore was welcomed at Occupy Oakland last week as a hero.
This is the same One Percenter - his conspicuous wealth includes a sprawling mansion on Torch Lake and a swanky pad at 200 Park Avenue in New York - who received a $1 million Michigan government handout to make his anti-One Percenter movie, “Capitalism: A Love Story.”
maybe Moore’s hypocrisy is a perfect symbol for the confused Occupy movement. The film-maker rallied the crowd in front of Oakland City Hall by urging them to expand their protests to leafy suburbs like Oakland’s middle-class Walnut Creek.
“That’s where all the money is, right?” he said.
Actually, Torch Lake is where the money is. Moore’s pad there is worth an estimated $5 million. In addition to taxpayer subsidies, Moore’s wealth comes from multinational corporations like Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment - a subsidiary of Sony that distributes his film, Fahrenheit 9/11 (box office gross: $222 million), on DVD.
From the trailer, it looks like Machete is ripped from the headlines. In a “message to Arizona,” this Mexican action hero takes on a Tom Tancredo like politician (played by Tancredo’s fellow Italian-American Robert DeNiro). Michelle Rodriguez, of Lost fame, and Jessica Alba also could not look hotter if they stepped out of a Hawaiian volcano.
