Still, I think it's worth seeing. You can read and (for the first time ever) listen to my review of the film here.
Atlas' poor earnings shouldn't be a surprise, though. It's a three hour, R-rated film that can't reveal what it's about unless you sit through the whole thing. The trailer doesn't give the audience much information. My guess: it will be slow to get public attention, but it will get there. Word of mouth, and random appearances by Tom Hanks might just get "Atlas" the traction it needs.
