According to Dolby, there are also now 23 sound postproduction facilities around the world that are equipped to support the immersive sound format.
That includes the newly equipped Stage 10 on the Warner Bros. lot where Man of Steel is being mixed by multiple Academy Award-winning Chris Jenkins and Oscar-nominated Dean A. Zupancic. The film opens June 14.
The latest Fox titles to be confirmed as Atmos releases are Epic, an animated film from Blue Sky, scheduled for a May 24 release; The Wolverine, opening July 26; and Percy Jackson, scheduled to debut August 16.
Meanwhile an Atmos mix of Paramount’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation is currently being finalized at Dolby Burbank by multiple Academy Award-nominated Greg P. Russell and multiple Oscar-winner Scott Millan. The movie opens March 28.
To hear the films with the new sound format, movie goers will need to see them in Atmos-equipped theaters.
