The failure of Atlas Shrugged had absolutely nothing to do with the failure of Cloud Atlas. There's no correlation to be found there.
I have to respectfully disagree.
Many of the people attracted a Wachowski movie or a movie of this type in general, often do
read film reviews.
The reviews of the Rand films in the "press" were widely negative in the extreme.
Even if said reviews were not read in their entirely very often, the Headlines
above the articles usually made it clear what the verdict was.
The word "atlas" is not used very often, especially in regard to Hollywood movies, it would stand out in people's short-term memories IMO.
