Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Behind the Picture and Sound

The technical wizards behind the film (Editor David Brenner, sound re-recording mixer Chris Jenkins, visual effects supervisor John ‘DJ’ Des Jardin and supervising sound editor Scott Hecker) played a huge role in the movie’s dramatic look and sound. In this panel discussion, held at the Dolby Cinema prototype theatre in Hollywood, these experts share their secrets, reveal some of the intricacies of the filmmaking process and how Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision helped them bring out the power of the story.


It's been nearly two years since Superman's (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
