Actually, I've found that regular HD (non-4K UHD) Blu-ray discs with Atmos encoding are not that hard to find on titles released in the past few years. But it's regular HD Blu-ray discs with DTS:X encoding that are tough to find. A lot of titles seem to just put DTS:X on the 4K UHD Blu-ray release of a title, but not on the regular HD Blu-ray release.
To configure my new (since October) 5.1.2 setup using Blu-ray discs that I already owned, I found a number that had Atmos on them (for example, "Blade Runner 2049", "Mad Max: Fury Road", some seasons of "Game of Thrones", "John Wick" 1 & 2, and a few others), but I found only ONE title I owned with DTS:X on it: "The Big Short" (afterwards, I ended up buying "London Has Fallen" on sale because I wanted at least one action-based movie with DTS:X, so I now have TWO titles with DTS:X).
It seems like more recent regular HD Blu-ray movies that use Dolby encoding for their sound have largely adopted Atmos, but regular HD Blu-ray movies that instead use DTS encoding are mostly sticking to "DTS Master Audio HD" sound on the regular HD release and are only using DTS:X on the corresponding 4K UHD release. Hopefully, this situation changes soon.
