Nor would it. It was not mixed in Atmos (just 5.1) and there was no 3D version at all.

I liked it, for the most part - the end was a bit too much of a formulaic Hollywood ending, but I can live with that.

On Blu-ray the audio soundtrack should be fun, with lots of organ/synthesizer music (for the bass lovers, like me), the overall sound should be real loud (most AVS members love that), in space in our rooms it should also be very spatial, very 4-dimensional, the father-daughter relationship should please many family members from our household and around friends, the picture aspect ration should be interesting, the special effects should truly shine and impress on a good calibrated display @ home, the moving pictures should have a natural flow and fluidity that encompasses our own vision @ home, our spirit should feel the lifting of freedom beyond our own dimensional world, brief the pictures on our screens and the sounds on our sound systems should rock the house.

Sure, 'Gravity' (Alfonso Cuaron) in in 3D, and it's now coming in Dolby Atmos on Blu-ray (April).
But here it is Christopher Nolan with a different vision regarding 3D picture and 3D sound. ...'Interstellar' on Blu (March 31).

So many films so little time.

I'll be buying this day one as well. Don't care about the lack of 3D but how do you know there's no Atmos? The link provided shows the audio as TBA.

I don't think any of Nolan's movies are in 3D.

...And neither 3D sound with Nolan. ...He is who he is; not James Cameron, not Michael Bay.

He's good @ 'Batman' (trilogy), and 'Inception', and 'Interstellar', and 'Memento', and few more... 2D picture, 70mm film pellicule, IMAX cameras, 5.1 surround sound, great music scores (hires great music composers in all his films), and all that cinema jazz from which Christopher Nolan is well known for.

John Wick was mixed in Auro and then converted to Atmos.

I agree with you in spirit but you aren't going to see any Christopher Nolan movies in Atmos.

Personally, I loved Interstellar and will pick up day one.

It would be nice if Lionsgate got a hold of this one though for an Atmos mix, as I'm convinced that they will only ever master in the new 3D audio formats from now on.

I just wish the rest of these studios would follow suit.

Interstellar barely has any surround activity at all. Christopher Nolan has explicitly said that he wanted the focus of the movie's soundtrack to be on the screen, and that he wanted it to be super-super-super-super-super-loud.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/02/ma...olan.html?_r=0

"The most important thing, he said, was the volume; he wanted a lot of simple power, and all of it coming right out of the screen. He didn’t put a lot of surround in the mix, because he didn’t want a lot of distraction from the sides."

Nolan vetoed an Atmos mix for the movie.

He also hates 3D, and says that he's never met anyone in real life who likes it.

I have a feeling this may be one of those 1st movies to be released on UHDBR....I might still pick this up though to past the time, I really enjoyed the movie. I can see lots of complaints form those who didn't see it in the theater (especially the 70mm IMAX Film). The variance in image quality can be a little jarring sometimes (I noticed it more in the beginning). Hopefully we get a faithful representation and people don't bug out

All that power coming from the screen may be behind the complaints of dialogue being hard to hear.

Some of it, other parts where having people mess up levels At the theaters. I know personally I didn't have trouble understanding what I was supposed to. From what I read some of the dialogue you weren't supposed to hear clearly. Guess we will know when it finally hits

You may be right, I saw this in 70mm Non-IMAX film and there were parts where you couldn't make out the dialogue because it was being drowned out by what was going on. Most of the movie didn't have that problem. Strange thing as movie's go this is not the loudest one I've been to. We'll see how the disc presents all this.

Same thing happened with TDKR which was also hard to decipher. Nolan either has terrible sound mixers or he has some perverted pleasure where he thinks the score and throbbing bass has to drown out everything in order to convey some sense of chaos in the movie but it does the exact opposite. Anytime you overdo something like Nolan does with the lower frequncies it tends to lose impact and presence.

With nearly all of Nolan's Blurays the front soundstage and upper frequencies are very compressed and are dwarfed by the bass leading to very unbalanced soundtracks. This makes it actually less involving because the audio lacks crispness. I expect the same bass onslaught at the expense of everything else for Intersteller.

These two things are not mutually exclusive. He has both terrible sound mixers and a sadistic need to torment his audience.

Gee, David Lynch did this years ago in TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME. (nightclub scene). But at least Lynch put in subtitles!
