I'm a really big fan of the Edgar Wrights work the man makes fun & stylish movies. I think this will be the surprise hit of the summer.

Your alter ego being in the movie leads me to believe you might be biased lol

Looks really good from here. Style over substance can be fantastic but it takes a deft hand. This gives me the same vibe as Kingsman/Wanted. Hope it's good. Very easy to screw something like this up, but when it's good ... it's good.

The first thing I thought was, is this a sequel to the 2008 movie, 21?

Saw this at a Dolby Cinema tonight. Great flick! The car chases were fun. The crime aspects were a little more serious than expected. The cast was great. The Dolby Vision was very naturalistic. But the Atmos soundtrack was phenomenal! I highly recommend you see it in a theater with good sound.

I only saw a few second of the first trailer and the reviews are really positive with an awesome cast. so this will definitely be a 100% blind watch when it comes on Blu-Ray, because i think this would be one of those movies you would hate yourself for not having a untainted viewing experience.

Also saw in Dolby Cinema. Honestly, I don't think anyone would miss much if they saw it in a regular theatre. As for the movie, thought it was ok. The chase scenes are well staged but the love story doesn't work at all. Lily James and Ansel Elgort are both painfully pretty but I don't think they have much chemistry and the flirty, dreamy and bantering dialogue between them seemed forced to my ear. Also, there seems to be a dangling subplot with another driver that was a bigger part of the movie at one point but was later dropped. However, because it's near-impossible to edit the second driver out of one scene without extensive reshoots, they left him in but his presence and role is otherwise a complete mystery.

Does anyone have any idea if the BR disc will be released with Atmos / DTS-X?

Thanks

Surprisingly this information is not readily available although I did find 2 references to Dolby Atmos.

One from gwsat (AVS Member) who stated that Kaleidoscope had the 4K version with Atmos.

And the German Blu-ray website which listed the 4K title with Dolby Atmos 7.1.

Thanks, it looks like I have to pre-order the 4k disc to be sure..
The BR might not have it..

Exactly, I had the issues with the presentation of it in the Dolby Cinema ( technical issues) outside of that. The film is worth watching, give us your thoughts after you've seen it.

Social media is a bitch. i already know one of the characters who die. you cant even be on YouTube or Instagram when new movie are out because people upload major scenes and it isn't taken down.

Given that Walmart has released this, does anyone know if the BR or the 4k disc has an Atmos soundtrack?

Saw this movie in the theaters without seeing any previews or having any idea what it was about. What an awesome surprise! I totally loved it. Plus I can identify with the tinnitus, haha.

Can't wait to get the blu-ray.
