Twentieth Century Fox Selects Dolby Atmos for Taken 2, Chasing Mavericks

Fox to outfit prestigious Zanuck Theater with Dolby Atmos for mixing future feature films
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) and Twentieth Century Fox®announced today that two of the studio’s fall 2012 releases, Taken 2 (U.S. release: October 5, 2012) and Chasing Mavericks (U.S. release: October 26, 2012), will be mixed and released in Dolby® Atmos™, the new audio platform that has revolutionized the experience of sound in entertainment.

Anticipating additional Dolby Atmos titles, Twentieth Century Fox is outfitting its Zanuck Theater postproduction facility with Dolby Atmos capabilities.

“Dolby Atmos transports audiences into the onscreen adventure with the most lifelike sensory experience ever offered in cinema,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Atmos will immerse moviegoers in the sounds of Istanbul’s bustling streets in the action-packed Taken 2 and atop the big waves of Chasing Mavericks.”

Two acclaimed sound re-recording mixers will be at the helm of the Dolby Atmos mixes. Craig Henighan will mix Chasing Mavericks in Dolby Atmos; Chuck Michael will conduct the Dolby Atmos mix for Taken 2. 

According to Darrow, Dolby has a long history of transforming and reinventing cinema sound and is attuned to the desires of both movie audiences and the creative community behind each film. 

“Twentieth Century Fox and Dolby have had a long and trusted history together,” said Ted Gagliano, President of Post Production, Twentieth Century Fox. “It is therefore not surprising to me that the breadth of Dolby’s experience has given them a keen insight not just into the moviegoing experience, but into the wants and needs of postproduction. This has obviously greatly influenced the vision of Dolby Atmos. Fox looks forward to enriching the cinematic experience with this latest innovation from Dolby.”

The list of North American theatres selected to show the fall 2012 releases of Taken 2 and Chasing Mavericks in Dolby Atmos will be made available closer to the release dates.

About Taken 2
Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent who stopped at nothing to save his abducted daughter in Taken. When he is targeted by a vengeance-seeking crime lord, Bryan must employ his “particular set of skills” to protect his family against an army out to kill them.

About Chasing Mavericks
Chasing Mavericks is the inspirational true story of surfing phenomenon Jay Moriarity (played by newcomer Jonny Weston). When 15-year-old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (played by Gerard Butler) to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to do the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing. Chasing Mavericks was made with the help of some of the biggest names in the surfing world, and it features some of the most mind-blowing wave footage ever captured on film.
