When Star Trek Into Darkness releases next May, the “latest technical achievements in cinematic storytelling” will “deliver a new experience to audiences.”

The movie will be released in Dolby Atmos, according to Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and Paramount Pictures.

According to the press release, “Star Trek into Darkness will be released in Dolby Atmos to deliver a more natural and realistic soundtrack that moves sound around and above audiences, transporting them into the outer regions of the universe. The Bad Robot Productions team will also integrate the Dolby Professional Reference Monitor PRM-4200 into its pre- and postproduction workflows.

Dolby Atmos is a new audio platform that revolutionizes the experience of sound in entertainment. It allows sound designers and mixers a new level of creative control and ensures that audiences will experience the full impact of the sound mix, regardless of theater configuration.”

“Dolby Atmos brings a new sonic dimension to the amazing visuals Star Trek into Darkness will deliver audiences,” said Mark Christiansen, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Operations, Paramount Pictures.

“We are in the incredible and lucky position to have access to the latest technology, the best possible tools, and the most talented artists in the business,” said J.J. Abrams. “We are therefore thrilled to announce that we will be employing the amazingly immersive Dolby Atmos audio system to bring the Star Trek into Darkness soundtrack to life.”

“J.J. Abrams embraces new innovations and technologies that improve storytelling,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby is helping the cinema industry to deliver on this vision as it has done for over four decades. We are excited to have J.J. Abrams use these new technologies to deliver the best picture and sound to the big screen.”

    Star Trek adopting new tech is a kiss of death for that tech – SACD? HD-DVD? Remember?

    It’s completely irrelevant, the pimply-faced itenerant projectionists will crank the volume up to painfully damaging levels anyway, thus reducing any new audio technology to an instrument of sonic torture.

    I used to be a projectionist and you’re usually told to leave big movies like this at their default volume.

    I’m sure the new film will be very interesting, but I’m not sure I’ll bother seeing it (after all, I didn’t see Nemesis or Trek V in the theater either! Though Nemesis grows on me). Having actually done a little bit in both the world of courage and of exploration (the second more “bit” than anything else), I’m not sure I need to see a film made by and for those whose most adventurous and critical decision of the day was whether to get the venti or grande before the rave tonight.

    But I’m sure it will be a good film.

    You can’t make a turd smell nice by adding perfume.
