Dolby Laboratories and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released for Dolby Cinema on March 25. The film’s world premiere at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on March 20 will be presented in Dolby Vision laser projection and Dolby Atmos sound. Dolby Cinema, featuring Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, is a premium cinema offering for exhibitors and moviegoers that combines spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design to make every visit a completely captivating cinematic event.
Fearing the actions of a godlike superhero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with each other, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it has ever known before.
Zack Snyder, the film’s director, said, “Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos are definite game changers for filmmakers. The blacks are truly black, and the deep contrast and brightness levels are amazing. They make these powerful and iconographic superhero characters that we’ve known all our lives truly come alive, and I’m thrilled we get to see—and especially to hear—this film in Dolby on the big screen.”
