Universal Studios confirmed via a press that the upcoming Blu-ray of Everest in both 3D and 2D editions will feature a Dolby Atmos Soundtrack.
The movie will be available on January 19th.
As usual, I updated the List of Dolby Atmos movies on the site.
Warner Brothers just confirmed the 2015 movie Pan will be released with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack on December 22nd with both 2D and 3D editions.
As usual, I updated the really growing fast Dolby Atmos Blu-ray movies list on the site.
Sony Pictures just announced their first UHD Blu-ray, that will be released in early 2016, with an official date not chosen yet.
The list of titles is : The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Salt, Hancock, Chappie, Pineapple Express and The Smurfs 2.
They also confirmed that a lot of titles will also support immersive audio, which is a good sign coming from Sony who just started to support Dolby Atmos.
The animal documentary Enchanted Kingdom, which was already available in Dolby Atmos from Japan has now been released in North America with the immersive track.
It’s really a good example of what the format can bring to documentary movies.
I also updated the list of Dolby Atmos releases on the site.
Update : It seems that Sicario will finally be offered with a Dolby Atmos Soundtrack, at least that’s what the press release says.
You can now add Sicario, from Canadian director Dennis Villeneuve, to the list. The movie will be released on January 5th and will feature a Dolby Atmos track on Blu-ray.
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.
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.
