Animated 3D Short Movie One Night In Hell features Dolby Atmos

One of The Kino Classics collection release of this month on Blu-ray, called The Mask, will feature as an added bonus the 3D animated short One Night In Hell which offers a Dolby Atmos soundtrack with music under the supervision of Queen’s Brian May.

The Mask

I really like the idea of this inclusion on the disc and the fact that it is presented as an highlight of the release. This continues to show strong support for the format even from smaller studios as Dolby Atmos continue to take more place in the home theater industry.
