I'm a big Taken fan. I even liked Taken 2 a lot but this was not good. It didn't really fit the storyline and overall just didn't work for me. A standard action romp. It even had 2 mysteriously exploding cars in it. The trailer was better than the movie. Too bad it went out on such a dull note.

The first one was terrific but the other two were really junk.

I would assume Fox has no plans on using Dolby Atmos on BD since this is the second recent Fox title to be announced without it that was mixed and shown theatrically in Atmos.

Funny that Liam Neeson supports gun control.

I went to see this movie. It was quite poor, and there was one awful re-dubbed use of "f**king" to "screwing", so the obligatory Unrated Cut is no surprise, either. If reports are that the violence and action is substantially better in the extended cut (which I doubt) then I may give the BD a go.

As I've pointed out elsewhere, Fox are DTS' #1 fan, having used DTS-HD MA on every disc they've ever encoded, so their avoidance of Dolby Atmos makes perfect sense.

I would bet they would go right from DTS-HD MA to DTS:X when available.

After the turd blossom that was Taken 2 I was not expecting much out of this. Thankfully it was quite a lot better, while not as good as the first, it was a fun and pleasant end to the franchise.

Yeah I guessed as much, but after the recent announcement for Unbroken from Universal I did not think it was not out of the question, since it is jumping from DTS to Dolby for that particular release.

Universal has used Dolby TrueHD before, especially in Japan, where they have already released an Atmos BD:



In fact, nearly every studio has utilized Dolby TrueHD before on some releases worldwide, except for Fox.

I'm assuming that's because he, like other sane people, can tell the difference between fiction and reality.

In the US though, Universal has always been DTS exclusive on BD as far as I know. I found them announcing Unbroken with Atmos as a surprise.
Has Universal ever used TrueHD anywhere in the world besides that Atmos release you pointed out from Japan? I don't think I own a release personally from them with it.

Yes, in Japan,they have used and continue to use TrueHD often. In fact, it used to be pretty much the default option when Geneon Universal (now known as NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan) did their own encoding.

Don't forget, too, that Oblivion (2013) used TrueHD for the Isolated Score track, and that most of the Blu-ray Audio titles from Universal Music Group use PCM, DTS-HD MA and TrueHD together.

On the other hand, in the entire world, I can only find one Fox-distributed BD that has Dolby TrueHD, and that is the Spanish BD of El Niño (2014), which has a Spanish: Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track (according to the BDInfo scan online):



But I don't know exactly what Fox's relationship to this title is.

I hear Taken 4 (or T4ken) is in development. Luc Besson may be in France, but he's certainly developed a Hollywood mentality.
