First Korean Dolby Atmos film announced

Published: ASIA

KOREA: Dolby Laboratories, Inc has announced five new film titles to be mixed in Dolby Atmos, one of them being Korean film Mr Go, reported to be the first Dolby Atmos title from Korea.

With the addition of Spain’s Las Brujas de Zugarramundi, Mindscape for Spain and Canada, Germany’s Tarzan 3D, and Spanish nature documentary Guadalquivir, Dolby Atmos has passed the milestone of 50 titles announced within one year since Disney Pixar’s Brave in June 2012.

Mr Go tells the story of an orphaned Chinese girl who builds a friendship with a gorilla destined to become a professional Korean baseball star. The film was mixed by Dexter Lab, the first Korean studio to work with Dolby Atmos. Audiences will be able to experience the Dolby sound format when Showbox releases the film in Korea on July 17th. Huayi Bros will release the movie in China on July 18th.

‘The addition of these new titles shows how Dolby Atmos has been embraced by major studios and directors from around the world,’ commented Andreas Spechtler, regional vice president, EMEA, Dolby Laboratories. ‘With Dolby Atmos, filmmakers can position and move sounds anywhere in the theatre, even overhead, for the most realistic and lifelike audio experience – giving movie fans a whole new reason to go to the cinema.’

To date, 38 cinema screens have been equipped with Dolby Atmos in 15 countries across EMEA. In addition, SPI Cinemas (India) and Wanda Cinemaline Corporation (China) recently announced plans to install Dolby Atmos.
