If you're asking how many theatrical movies were 7.1 for the cinema, I wouldn't have a clue. Filmmixer might have an idea
If you're asking how many BD releases are 7.1, there's several sites that listed all available 6.1/7.1 BD's. Here's one I can link to.
The original post is in 2010 but the author is keeping the list up-to-date with new & latest titles.
counting rows on an excel sheet, his total is 711.
the total # of blu-ray titles released is many tens of thousands from all studios. it's going to be tedious to add up the list by studio but I'll see if I can parse the textual listings to just get numbers
and will let you know the number if I succeed!
the same site has the totals by genre and by studio. if totals by genre don't overlap, the total will be well over 300,000.
for the sake of argument, let's say 7.1's are < 0.25 % of the total.
IOW, very dam few are taking advantage of existing capability.
and total number of Atmos titles is about 120, right?
not scientific by any means
but looking at numbers, it took all
Blu-ray studios 8 yrs to release 711 titles with 7.1 out of all the movies released, or about 89/yr.
with 120 titles with a subset of a subset for Atmos, it could take 1.3 yrs for them to get thru the list IF they decided to aggressively release them at the same pace of ~90/yr. or it could take a decade (!) if they follow the same pattern as 7.1
