We already knew Universal was planning a bunch of Ultra HD Blu-ray titles, and they now have announced the first ones to come out in August.
Lucy and Oblivion will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack as they were originally presented that way in theater. Lucy had that track available on the Hong Kong version of the Blu-ray and for having tested it it’s a very agressive Atmos soundtrack, one of the best I heard. For Oblivion, it will be the first time the movie is released with Atmos at home.
Lone Survivor on its side will feature a newly created DTS:X soundtrack.
There’s really a trend of Atmos being used for native Atmos movies in theaters and DTS:X for remixes (and the limited number of theater releases in the format).
I updated the different lists on the site to reflect that new information.
Paramount announced this week that the Tina Fey movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot will be launched on June 28th.
The movie will feature DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X soundtracks.
As usual, I update the list of DTS:X blu-rays on the site.
We knew they were coming due to Canadian preorders, but it’s now official, Warner confirmed that Creed, Point Break and In The Heart of the Sea will all be available on Ultra-HD Blu-ray starting on June 7th.
In The Heard of the Sea will receive the same Dolby Atmos soundtrack while the other two movies will be in DTS HD Master Audio.
Quick update to let you know that Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release The Divergeant Series : Allegiant with Dolby Atmos on both Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray on July 12th.
I update both the list of Dolby Atmos movies and the list of Ultra HD Blu-rays on the site.
Paramount announced that 10 Cloverfield Lane will be launched on Blu-ray on June 14th and will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
As usual, I update the list of Dolby Atmos Blu-rays on the site.
Shout Factory just confirmed that the documentary Humpback Whales will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray on August 2nd.
It will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
Shout Factory confirmed this week that both the Blu-ray and the Ultra HD Blu-ray editions on Journey To Space will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed from the IMAX 12 channel original audio track.
As already confirmed, both editions will be available on June 7th.
As usual, I updated the list of Dolby Atmos Blu-rays on the site.
The 20th Century Fox announced last week that a new version of The Martian, this time in an Extended Edition with an added 10 minutes of footage. The new cut will be available on Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray on June 7th.
Sadly, still no Dolby Atmos love for The Martian from Fox.
I added this new entry in the list of Ultra HD Blu-rays on the site.
