Twentieth Century Fox to Release Diverse Slate of Dolby Atmos Titles

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Rio 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be mixed in the world’s most advanced cinema sound format

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that Twentieth Century Fox will be releasing several Dolby® Atmos™ titles in a broad range of genres, including action, animation, and comedy with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Rio 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
 
Dolby Atmos has rapidly become the preferred sound format of award-winning filmmakers, major studios, and exhibitors the world over. Dolby Atmos unleashes the potential of sound in storytelling by giving filmmakers the ability to precisely place or move sounds anywhere in the movie theatre to create the most engaging cinematic experience ever.
 
“Dolby Atmos is the most powerful sound technology we have ever used,” said Ted Gagliano, President of Post Production, Twentieth Century Fox. “Whether you are watching an action thriller or a comedy, Dolby Atmos will make you feel as if you, too, are in the movie, not merely watching it. Twentieth Century Fox is proud to have been among the first to support it.”
 
Fox has released a broad range of Dolby Atmos titles, including the Academy Award® winning Life of Pi, A Good Day to Die Hard, and The Heat, in addition to those announced today.
 
Ben Stiller directs and stars in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, James Thurber’s classic story of a daydreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance, and action. When his job, along with that of his coworker (Kristen Wiig) is threatened, Walter takes action in the real world, embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could ever have imagined. The Dolby Atmos version will be mixed by Academy Award nominated rerecording sound mixer Skip Lievsay (dialogue and music). Craig Henighan will be collaborating on the mix (FX) and will conduct the sound design. Henighan and Paul Urmson will be co-supervising sound editors. The Dolby Atmos mix will be conducted at the Zanuck on the Twentieth Century Fox lot and Warner Bros. Stage 6. The film is scheduled to release on December 25, 2013, in the United States.
 
In Rio 2, from Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios, and directed by Academy Award nominated Carlos Saldanha, it’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel, and their three kids, after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. The Dolby Atmos version will be mixed by Academy Award winner rerecording sound mixer Randy Thom (FX), who will lead sound design. Thom will be accompanied by Academy Award winning rerecording sound mixer Lora Hirschberg (dialogue and music) at Skywalker Sound’s Mix A Stage. Academy Award nominated Gwen Whittle will be the supervising sound editor. The film is scheduled to release on April 11, 2014, in the United States.
 
In X-Men: Days of Future Past, the ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from the past, X-Men: First Class, in order to change a major historical event and fight in an epic battle that could save our future. The Dolby Atmos version of X-Men: Days of Future Past will be mixed by Academy Award winning rerecording sound mixer Doug Hemphill (FX) and Academy Award nominated rerecording sound mixer Ron Bartlett (dialogue and music) at the John Ford Stage on the Twentieth Century Fox lot. Academy Award nominated Craig Berkey and John Larsen will be co-supervising sound editors. Berkey and Chuck Michael will conduct the sound design. The film is scheduled to release onMay 23, 2014, in the United States.
 
In the sci-fi action thriller Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves, man and ape are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species. The Dolby Atmos version will be mixed by Academy Award winner rerecording sound mixer Andy Nelson (dialogue and music) and rerecording sound mixer Will Files (FX) on the Twentieth Century Fox lot at the newly equipped Howard Hawks Stage. John Larsen, Douglas Murray, and Files will collaborate on supervising sound editing and sound design. The film is scheduled to release on July 18, 2014, in the United States.
 
“Dolby Atmos creates a virtual reality of sound by precisely placing and moving sounds within the theatre to make audiences feel as if they, too, are in the middle of the onscreen action,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “Twentieth Century Fox, with its amazing range of Dolby Atmos titles over the past year, really shows how Dolby Atmos can take cinematic storytelling to a new level through sound.”
 
About Dolby Atmos

More than 300 Dolby Atmos screens have been installed or committed to in 33 countries with more than 100 exhibitor partners. 85 films from 10 different countries—representing a broad range of genres—have been or are scheduled to be released with Dolby Amos sound since the first film debuted in June 2012.
