Twentieth Century Fox® and Dolby Laboratories revealed that Academy Award winning director Ang Lee’s visually stunning work Life of Pi will be mixed and released in Dolby® Atmos, the new audio platform that has revolutionized the experience of sound in entertainment.

“Today we are pleased to announce ‘Life of Pi’ will be our third Dolby Atmos title,” said Chris Aronson, President, Domestic Distribution, Twentieth Century Fox. “We have been very impressed with the ability of Dolby Atmos to deliver a new level of storytelling with the soundscapes for ‘Taken 2’ and ‘Chasing Mavericks’ and expect Dolby Atmos to deliver an amazing experience for audiences with ‘Life of Pi’.”
