A Lot of New Titles with Dolby Atmos and some Ultra HD Blu-ray news

It’s been a pretty busy week on the Dolby Atmos front and to some extent also on the Ultra HD Blu-ray side. If there’s anyone still doubting that Dolby is winning the format war on UHD, I think there’s less and less doubts. Amazing how the year of delay that happened with DTS:X changed the landscape completely.

Here are the new titles announced this week.

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

Already confirmed on UHD Blu-ray, the title from Sony now has a release date of February 14 and will feature a Dolby Atmos track.

A Lot of News on the Dolby Atmos Front

Dolby is continuing to dominate the immersive audio landscape in the last couple of weeks with a lot of announcements of new titles. In fact, as it stands right now, there is zero DTS:X title in the queue to be released. I’m always interested to see how the next couple of months will happen, but its starting to feel like it’s going to be really difficult for DTS to reverse the situation.

Enough ranting and or fanboyism (I’m always rooting for the innovator and it’s that case, it’s clearly Dolby) and on to the new Atmos announcements of the week including some new UHD titles.

The Legend of Tarzan

The movie will be available on Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and UltraHD Blu-ray with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack. It’s always interesting to see Warner continuing to support Atmos on Blu-ray and not keep it only for UHD.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

Going along the UHD release of the movie, now confirmed with Atmos, Sony will also release a 15th Anniversary Blu-ray edition with the Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
