(Washington Times) Harmon Kaslow, the producer of the forthcoming “Atlas Shrugged: Part II,” has been fairly straightforward in acknowledging that the pro-capitalist movie sequel’s Oct. 12 release date, just weeks before Election Day, is intentional.

Having part two of the cinematic adaptation of Ayn Rand’s classic novel — the first installment flopped big time last year — in theaters “will give like-minded people an opportunity to get together and sort of discuss the issues, and the course of action that they’re going to take in connection with those elections,” Mr. Kaslow told The Washington Times earlier this year.

More guarded about their intentions are those behind “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden,” a new film about the 2011 military raid that killed the terrorist mastermind, which is set to debut on the National Geographic Channel on Nov. 4, two days before the election. The following day, the movie will be available on Netflix.
