Dolby has officially announced its 100th title to support both the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos formats, with a whole slate of films set to hit Dolby Cinema this year. These films include blockbuster sequels such as Spider-Man: Homecoming and Despicable Me 3, as well as hotly anticipated original films like Baby Driver and Dunkirk.

Dolby Cinema is available in over 100 theatres worldwide, with at least another 33 planned for launch in the coming months.

Speaking about the latest slate of film announcements, Doug Darrow, senior vice president, cinema business group, Dolby Laboratories, notes: “Reaching the 100th announced title for Dolby Cinema is a tremendous accomplishment that couldn’t have been achieved without the support from the directors and filmmakers who want to use the best technology for their storytelling.

“In 2017 we announced 44 Dolby Cinema titles, more than any other premium format, which is a testament to the ongoing commitment from Hollywood and studios around the world to deliver the best experience to the cinema.”

Warner Bros. will have several films launch in the new format, including Dunkirk from director Christopher Nolan, The LEGO NINJAGO Movie, and Justice League. The company also has the honour of producing the 100th Dolby Cinema film, Horse Soldiers.

“Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos are two amazing formats that deliver on the Dolby Cinema experience and provide our filmmakers the ability to showcase their true talents,” says Jeff Goldstein, president, domestic distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. “Dolby Cinema makes you feel as if you are in the movie, and we are proud to be a part of this tremendous milestone.”
