Watch the Trailer for Atlas Shrugged Part II, Just in Time for Obama’s Convention Speech

Problem: How to make a sequel to a roundly panned movie about industrialists and bullet trains and the awesomeness of capitalism seem exciting?
Solution: Inception horns. BRAAAAM! (Also, shots of an Inception-looking hallway, badly CGI-ed explosions, and a plot point where all copyrights are transferred to the federal government.)

The trailer for Atlas Shrugged Part II (due out three-or-so weeks before the presidential election), has dropped. Given the timing, it basically seems to be all about how Obama is going to send Laura Palmer's father to steal your patent for that tray that makes ice in the shape of guinea pigs while also freezing your wages (into the shape of guinea pigs).
