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.”
