    I am preordering the 3D version from Amazon.

    However, the last Warner 3D preorder that Amazon offered, for Blade Runner 2049, ended up being canceled by Amazon when (for reasons unknown) they were unable to stock the product. Here's hoping that this order will actually be fulfilled!

    Also preordered. Certainly not my favorite movie of the year, but I'm one of those completist people. At any rate, it'll be a good drinking game for me.

    The 4K is $30 and the 3D is $45? One knife in the back of 3D.

    The retail price for both is the same - $45. The 3D will be discounted at $30 by street date.

    Hoping the 3D disc actually has Atmos this time, as Warner has left it off of their previous 3D titles but kept it on the included 2D versions.

    Warner did include ATMOS on the Batman v. Superman 3-D Blu-Ray a couple years ago. They're selective about it for some reason.

    Probably to push more people towards 4K and away from declining 3D sales.

    Just put the ATMOS track on the 3D Blu and include it with the 4K release only. Problem solved. Everybody wins. No one is going to upgrade to a 4K setup just because there's no ATMOS on the 3D stand-alone title.

    You know those people who didn’t know about 3D at home? They have never heard of Atmos!

    And they're listening to the film through their TV speakers anyway, so anything more than basic stereo is a waste.

    All the studios have been selective about Atmos. I could be wrong, but it doesn't seem anybody is putting Atmos tracks on Blu-ray product. It has been purposely made into a premium addition solely for 4k owners.

    I mean, I just bought an Oppo 4k player for the sole purpose of down-rezing the 4k to Blu-ray just so I could have Atmos.

    Either Dolby or the Studios are being real shits about this. The mere fact that most all the studios are doing this unanimously tells me this is a Dolby thing -- and they have denied it. So, I don't know who to believe. Not making any waves -- just trying to enjoy Atmos whatever way I can get it.

    Warner's current policy is Atmos on the 2D BD and UHD, but only 5.1 on the 3D BD. It's bizarre.

    Let’s face it. A decision has been made to kill 3D.

    For sure. But it's such an odd way to do it. I think if you're a hardcore 3D fan, having 5.1 only isn't going to dissauade you from purchasing.

    I find it even weirder that the latest Warner release, Blade Runner 2049, has DTS-HD MA 5.1 on the 3D, and both Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD MA 5.1 on the 2D. That's redundant and makes no sense - Atmos decodes as Dolby TrueHD 7.1 if you don't have Atmos, or 5.1 if you don't have 7.1, so the DTS track is completely redundant.

    It's typical industry crap. Instead of dangling an enticement to adopt new tech, they punish people using existing standards to try and "force" them to switch. Stupid.

    Correct. I want 3D, don't really care about Atmos (or 4K for that matter).

    In my case, it's having the opposite effect. Instead of eagerly adopting 4K, I am now holding on to my current tech as long as possible because when it goes, I'll lose 3D. Had they allowed both to coexist peacefully (which wouldn't have cost them a dime), I'd be in the upgrade market a lot sooner.
