"Atlas Shrugged: Part One" Yawns and BOMBS – Adds Theatres, Box Office Drops 48 Percent

All week the right wing and and tea party has been hyping and spinning the movie Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 as the little Tea Party manifesto movie that could but after its second weekend in release the box office numbers officially proves it can’t and is a bona fide BOMB!

Even despite the fact that Atlas Shrugged expanded from its original release count of 299 Theatres to over 465 Theatres in its second week, Its weekend Box Office fell a whopping -47.9% percent not even breaking a million dollars with a paltry second weekend box office of $879,000 and a 2 week gross of only $3,094,000.

Atlas Shrugged Part 1 cost 20 Million dollars to make and will not even come halfway close to breaking even by the end of its theatrical run.

Looks like the Goverment budget deficit isn’t the only thing the Tea Party has to worry about now and all you tea baggers out there better not hold your breath waiting for Part 2 to be made.

Oh wait.  Maybe you should.
