Dolby Atmos is one of those innovations that you really have to hear to appreciate.  It takes care of nagging theatrical audio problems like dead spots, but it does much more than that.  With Atmos, sound engineers can direct audio to specific locations and give a better immersion and feeling of movement.  The technology was first shown to the public for 'Brave,' and it's coming again for 'Taken 2.'  A total of 15 theaters will be using Atmos, with one in Canada and two in China also embracing Dolby's new creation. Hit the jump to see a list of theatres showing 'Taken2' in Dolby Atmos:
