Along with the gods 2017 (DTS-HD)
The Wandering Earth 2019
Not sure how many channels they would support, but at least they are good movies to start with.
Thanks for the suggestions. I am on the hunt for movies that utilize height channels natively to great effect, beyond 7.1.4. This essentially limits my search to DTS-X and Dolby Atmos titles (i.e. excluding DTS-HD and True HD tracks).
The titles that I mentioned above all originated from 1 studio, which specifically seemed to mix movies in DTS-X beyond the typical 7.1.4 that most current American films utilize. Some titles go to 9.1.4, but that isn't what I am after. Really, I am hoping to find films that take advantage of the center height channels in DTS-X pro, which are known as Ch and Oh.
Ip Man 3 came out way back in 2015, and yet the DTS-X track in the film seems far advanced from any other DTS-X track that I have heard to date. Wolf Warrior 2 will utilize Ch and Oh in DTS-X Pro for literally 1 second during a helicopter crash. Operation Red Sea will utilize Ch and Oh sporadically during a 45 segment. Ip Man 3 utilizes Ch and Oh several times throughout the film. Hopefully, more studios will follow the path of Well Go USA in the future, and go beyond, taking full advantage of what DTS-X has to offer.
Aside from the identified movies from Well Go USA, the only other audio track that I have found that takes advantage of Ch or Oh well is a documentary called Turtle Odyssey. That is an Imax Enhanced title about a Turtle surviving to adulthood and returning to where it was hatched.
I have yet to watch The Wandering Earth, but I did watch the Atmos track of Shadow. Shadow was a very beautiful film, but I found the Atmos track to not really utilize height channels as much as I would like. You get a little bit of rain, but not much else. Perhaps the DTS-X track will take better advantage of the heights, but I suspect this likely won't be the case.
