Nine years after the first Dolby Cinema launch, the upcoming film Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One marks the 500th theatrical film in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. Less than a decade after the first Dolby Cinema was opened in 2014, there are now 290 across 14 countries, according to Dolby. Dolby Cinemas feature both Dolby Atmos sound as well as Dolby Vision, a proprietary technology that enhances the base HDR10 format for a better visual experience.
“We’re proud to empower the theatrical community with Dolby’s pioneering audio and video technologies as we celebrate our 500th feature film in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos with the upcoming film Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One,” said Head of Cinema & Group Entertainment, Dolby Laboratories, Jed Harmsen.
The upcoming film was created with Dolby Cinemas in mind, said producer, director and writer Christopher McQuarrie. “I’m devoted to a fully immersive big screen experience and no big screen experience is complete without the extraordinary detail, depth, power and presence of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos,” remarked McQuarrie.
Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One releases on July 12.
