Transformers: Dark Of The Moon To Receive Dolby 7.1 Treatment

Written by Gradly on . Posted in blog, Movies, News, Rants & Raves, Tech.

For a 3D movie, 3D Surround Sound is equally important. With the introduction of Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound, the 3D experience is boosted.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is being benefited with the latest sound technology from Dolby Laboratories. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was released in Dolby 5.1 which was the technology back then. But on Showest 2010, Dolby Laboratories explained how their Dolby Surround 7.1 can help the visuals of “3D” movies.

Hollywood Reporter says Paramount’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon are among the upcoming movies that will use Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound, which will be highlighted this week at CinemaCon.

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 2, Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2 and Paramount’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon are among the upcoming movies that will use Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound, which will be highlighted this week at CinemaCon.

Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 was the first Dolby 7.1 release. Since the June 2010 launch, more than 1,300 global installations of Dolby Surround 7.1 have been conducted. Disney’s Tron: Legacy was a recent Dolby 7.1 release.

Dolby Surround 7.1 brings a more exciting sensory experience to audiences for 2D and gives content creators control over audio placement in a theater when mixing 3D movies. The ability to compose audio with visual elements of 3D allows content creators to immerse the audience deeper into the movie with dramatic realism.

Selected theaters may play Transformers 3 with the latest sound technology. You can locate your nearest theater with Dolby Surround by visiting Dolby.com

New Autobot ‘Sentinel Prime’ & More Spoilers of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

Written by Gradly on . Posted in blog, Movies, News, Rants & Raves, Superheroes

We still haven’t seen an actual trailer for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon yet, just some awesome Super Bowl spot & TV spot.

In the meantime, Empire debuted a new cover featuring an Autobot called Sentinel Prime, who’s a “big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime.” Obviously he’s going to have to come in and help out. Other news from the mag is that TF3 won’t have “dorky humor” or “sand“, but they will give “weight” to the bots again: “when robots die, they’re really going to die and we’re gonna show that.” Damn.

Bay describes this third installment as “kind of like a spy movie.” Bay also reveals the Ferrari is a Decepticon named Dreadbox, and there’s a bot that “the scale on one of them is jawdropping.” Can’t wait for more!

Sentinel Prime – An Autobot who will debut as a red/black Rosenbauer Panther fire truck. Optimus Prime’s brother & Mentor.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is again directed by everyone’s favorite explosive director, Michael Bay, of the previous two Transformers movies as well as Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and The Island. The screenplay was written by Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote the Revenge of the Fallen script but went solo this time, and also worked on The Ring, The Skeleton Key and Brothers Grimm screenplays. Paramount is bringing Transformers 3 to theaters everywhere in 3D starting July 1st, 2011 this summer!

Michael Bay shared some plot details for Transformers: Dark of the Moon and they contain some pretty big spoilers.

Spoilers

  • There will be no sand.
  • There will be no dorky humor (“We wanted to make the movie much more serious, more adult.”)
  • When a robot dies, it will actually die. And that death will be shown onscreen.
  • The robots will be given more ‘weight’ in the story (“They were missed in movie two. We’ve given them a strong back-story and pathos.”)
  • Sentinel Prime is “A big brother and mentor to Optimus Prime”.
  • The Ferrari is a Decepticon nicknamed ‘Dreadbox’.
  • Starscream and Shockwave will have new companions. “The scale on one of them is jaw dropping” – “It will be ‘what the Hell was that thing?”
  • The Apollo 11 ‘incident’ show in the teaser is a big government secret.
  • There will be no army. Chicago is left in the hands of the Autobots (but some heroes sneak in through the back-door so to speak).
  • The human gliders are used because they slip under the Decepticons’ radar – as do humans – so they’ll be the people who can hammer it to the ‘Cons and create an opening for the Autobots.
