The final film we’ll note this week is “Atlas Shrugged Part III: Who Is John Galt?” It opens on 240 screens. The first two films in the trilogy posted total receipts of just $8 million.

The trilogy’s finale is expected to generate around $1 million in ticket sales for privately held Atlas Distribution.
