Movies Released in Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos Sound

dolby vision and atmos

In my opinion, high dynamic range (HDR) imagery and immersive 3D sound represent the most significant evolution in the cinema experience in a very long time. The most prominent purveyor of these technologies is Dolby Labs with its Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound, which are combined with super-comfy seats in Dolby Cinema auditoriums. For a complete list of these venues, click here.

As I’ve seen and heard many times now, movies graded and shown in Dolby Vision HDR with sound mixed in Dolby Atmos provide an exceptional cinema experience. However, some movies shown in Dolby Cinemas are graded in standard dynamic range, and it’s nearly impossible to tell which ones are HDR from the promotional material or the theater’s website.

So here is a list of all the movies that have been or will be graded and shown in Dolby Vision HDR with Atmos sound in Dolby Cinema theaters, along with their release date; titles with hyperlinks open our coverage of them. Some have already finished their theatrical run, while others are waiting in the wings. (I hope they are all released in HDR on Ultra HD Blu-ray!) If you live near one of the Dolby Cinema locations, I strongly recommend that you see the upcoming titles there.

AMC has decided not to offer 3D in the Dolby Cinema rooms. As the company explains it, their multiplexes offer RealD and Imax 3D in other rooms, so they want to give customers the choice to see it in 2D HDR—which, in my opinion, is the right choice. HDR is very dimensional all by itself, and I really dislike spectrum-separation (aka 6P) 3D, which is used by Dolby Vision for 3D.

I’ll add titles to this list as I learn of them, so keep checking back to discover more movies released in Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound. And please send me a PM or email (scott@avsforum.com) if you know of any such movies that aren’t on this list. Hopefully, you’ll get to experience them at a Dolby Cinema—it really is worth it.
