As Mike Opelka points out, the early interest in Atlas Shrugged has been strong---particularly when you factor in the lack of a gigantic marketing campaign to support it. The only issue so far has been finding it in a theater near you, considering that it debuted in only 299 theaters. A big budget release is typically in 3,000+ theaters.
Finding it gets a bit easier this weekend as Atlas Shrugged adds 56% to it's theater count to rise to 465. And the rumor is that it could double to about 1,000 in the coming weeks.
