The impressive Atmos sound technology from Dolby has just been attached to another major firm – 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' The followup to the incredible J.J. Abrams reboot of the Star Trek franchise will take advantage of everything Atmos has to offer, immersing audiences in sound and creating pinpoint audio locations. In other words, when the Klingon Bird of Prey passes overhead, you're going to want to duck.
In addition to 'Star Trek Into Darkness' and 'The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey,' the films 'Gravity' and 'Pacific Rim' will be getting the full Atmos treatment. There's no word yet on an exact listing of theaters, but we expect to see details closer to the May 17th, 2013 release date.
