'Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation' to Be Paramount's First Dolby Cinema Release
Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation will be the first Paramount release that will have a version made specifically for Dolby Cinema, a premium large-format theater experience that includes Dolby’s newfangled Dolby Vision high dynamic range format as well as Dolby Atmos immersive sound.
This version can be seen in theaters that are playing the film and are equipped to handle the format. Dolby Cinema or Dolby Vision projection is currently installed at roughly 10 cinema auditoriums worldwide, plus early Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime locations (roughly 100 Prime locations are expected to be converted by 2024).
The film is additionally available with Dolby Atmos sound at all theaters equipped with that sound system.
In May, Disney’s Tomorrowland was the first movie to open in Dolby Cinema, followed by early Dolby Cinema releases, Warner Bros.' San Andreas and Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out.
Dolby Vision also is being prepped as a home viewing format. Vizio is expected to be the first set maker to offer Dolby Vision-branded TVs.
The format offers high dynamic range (meaning a wider range between the whitest whites and blackest blacks) and a wider color gamut.
