The next three titles to feature Dolby's latest audio technology have been revealed.
Dolby and Paramount have announced that the upcoming November 4 release of 'Hercules' and the December 16 release of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' will both include Dolby Atmos mixes. Likewise, Lionsgate has announced that the November 4 release of 'Step Up All In' will also feature an Atmos track.
All three movies will join 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' which became the first Dolby Atmos Blu-ray to hit stores when it was released earlier this week.
