Dolby Atmos Adds New Dimension to Jackie Chan’s CZ12

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced that Jackie Chan’s latest action film, CZ12 (Release date: December 20, 2012), will be mixed and released in Dolby® Atmos™, the new audio platform that revolutionizes the experience of sound in entertainment. 

“I am very excited to adopt Dolby Atmos, the latest innovation in cinema sound, for my 101st film project,” said Jackie Chan, internationally acclaimed actor, screenwriter, director, and producer. “For decades, I’ve been working to perfect every aspect of my movies, from the stunts and action sequences to storytelling and production. Dolby Atmos has proven to be a powerful tool that helps us achieve excellence and bring CZ12 to life with the most lifelike and immersive sound possible.” 
CZ12 will be mixed in Dolby Atmos at MBS Studios in Hong Kong by widely acclaimed and multiple award-winning sound designer and sound mixer Kinson Tsang. “There is no doubt that Dolby Atmos has added a new dimension to storytelling, allowing the unparalleled creative control over the placement and movement of sounds,” said Kinson Tsang. “Whether Jackie is in a high-speed car chase on the highway or being pursued through a forest by a swarm of bees, Dolby Atmos allows me to draw the audience right into the action.” 
“We are both thrilled and honored that Jackie Chan has selected Dolby Atmos for his latest action thriller, CZ12,” said Mike Chao, Managing Director, Greater China, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Atmos offers filmmakers a completely new level of creative freedom in storytelling. It brings a more natural and realistic soundtrack that matches the stunning visual effects today and in the future. In CZ12, Dolby Atmos will transport audiences directly into Jackie Chan’s latest adventure.” 
CZ12 is written, directed, and produced by martial-arts veteran Jackie Chan, who also stars in the film as an adventurous treasure hunter traveling around the globe to recover stolen Chinese national treasures. The film is a production of China Hero (Asia) Ltd. Jackie and JJ International Limited is handling the film’s worldwide distribution, including the Taiwan and Singapore markets. Emperor Motion Pictures is handling distribution for the Hong Kong and Macau markets; Huayi Brothers Media Corporation is handling distribution in the Mainland China market. 
About CZ12
Megastar Jackie Chan returns triumphantly to the action genre with CZ12, in which he plays a modern-day treasure hunter who is tracking down the missing pieces of the 12 zodiac bronze heads—real-life national treasures stolen from China in the 19th century during an Anglo-French invasion. This spectacular new adventure takes Jackie from the chateaux and vineyards of France and the hidden dangers of a jungle on a South Seas island to the terrors of a fight in free fall above an active volcano. CZ12 will be released in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore theatres on December 20, 2012. 
About Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos brings a powerful new listening experience to the cinema with more natural, realistic sound that truly envelops the audience. It is an end-to-end solution that helps mixers, studios, and distributors dramatically improve the audio experience. The Dolby Atmos platform makes it easy for content creators to create immersive soundscapes, and it ensures the best possible audience experience, regardless of theatre configuration or the number of speakers. 
Hollywood studios including Disney/Pixar (Brave), Paramount Pictures/DreamWorks Animation (Rise of the Guardians), Twentieth Century Fox (Taken 2, Chasing Mavericks, Life of Pi), and Warner Bros. (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) have adopted the Dolby Atmos format, increasing the count of 2012 Dolby Atmos titles to six. 
In 2013, three Hollywood studio titles, including Gravity and Pacific Rim from Warner Bros. and Star Trek into Darkness from Paramount Pictures, are already scheduled to receive the Dolby Atmos treatment, with additional studio titles to follow. 
International movie productions are currently in the works or will be started in 2013 by movie studios in China, France, Germany, India, Korea, Spain, and the United Kingdom. 
Acclaimed Singapore director Jack Neo’s Ah Boys to Men and renowned Chinese director Feng Xiaogang’s 1942 were recently released in Dolby Atmos. Jackie Chan’s CZ12, celebrated Chinese director Andrew Lau’s The Guillotines, and famous Chinese director Jing Wong’s The Last Tycoon join the growing list of international titles soon to be released.
