Next Wave of Hollywood Blockbusters Comes to Dolby Cinema
Lionsgate, Paramount, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox, and Universal to Bring Audiences Heart-Pounding, Eye-Popping Action to the Total Cinema Experience
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that Hollywood blockbusters are kicking into high gear with Sony Pictures’ Pixels, in theatres July 24, and Paramount Pictures’ Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation, in theatres July 31, coming to Dolby Cinema™. Universal Pictures’ Everest, in theatres this September, and Lionsgate Entertainment’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2, in theatres this November, will deliver the total cinema experience to moviegoers this fall, along with titles soon to be announced by Twentieth Century Fox.
Dolby Cinema, featuring Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos®, is a premium cinema offering for exhibitors and moviegoers that combines spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design to make every visit a completely captivating cinematic event.
Following the first installment of titles to be shown at Dolby Cinema, including Disney’s Tomorrowland, Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out, and Warner Bros.’ San Andreas, the Chris Columbus–directed Pixels (starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, and Josh Gad), will be the first Sony Pictures title scheduled to be presented in Dolby Vision. InPixels, aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war and attack the Earth in the form of the video games.
“Pixels is one of the most visual effects–rich movies I’ve ever been involved with—the video game elements pixelate and glow with energy, making the stunning visuals an ideal movie for the Dolby Cinema experience,” said Michael Barnathan, producer of Pixels.“Our team was incredibly excited to collaborate with Dolby on color grading and sound mixing the movie with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The combination of amazing sound and vibrant imagery—bright, clear, and full of color—makes Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and the rest of the arcade game characters larger than life on the big screen.”
Dolby Cinema begins with the filmmaker’s vision—using the full storytelling capabilities that Dolby offers in image and sound production to transform the way movies are made. Combined with state-of-the-art image, sound, and acoustic capabilities, the movie comes alive to deliver cinema in its purest form.
In Paramount Pictures’ Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation, audiences go deep undercover as Ethan Hunt and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate—an international rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.
Universal Pictures’ Everest takes moviegoers on a thrill ride that is inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain. Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.
In the fourth installment of Lionsgate’s global blockbuster The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2, audiences will see Katniss Everdeen and District 13 engage in an all-out revolution against the autocratic Capitol.
“Dolby Cinema delivers the ultimate experience to any movie, and we are excited to see major studios like Lionsgate, Paramount, Sony, Fox, and Universal release their first Dolby Vision titles,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “From action-adventure thrillers to science-fiction and retro arcade games, these Hollywood blockbusters will deliver unprecedented imagery and unparalleled sound that will transport audiences into these movies in a unique and powerful way when experienced at Dolby Cinema locations.”
In addition, Twentieth Century Fox plans to bring its first slate of Dolby Vision titles to Dolby Cinema. “We are excited for our films to be shown in Dolby Cinemas across the globe and look forward to announcing our upcoming slate to be graded in Dolby Vision,” said Chris Aronson, President of Domestic Distribution, Twentieth Century Fox. “Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos will allow our audiences to further enjoy their cinematic experiences, propelling moviemaking to the next level.”
Dolby Cinema enables richer and more detailed storytelling through Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The Dolby Vision projection system, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing, delivers high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio that far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today. The result is a dramatically different viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images that make viewers feel like they are in the movie’s world. Dolby Cinema also includes the award-winning Dolby® sound technology, Dolby Atmos, which moves audio around the theatre, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth.
