Another THX EX DVD title emerges – The Haunting

Although initially not planned that way, Dreamworks Home Video has decided to release the upcoming The Haunting with a THX EX encoded Dolby Digital soundtrack. We reported earlier.

“Since it is already encoded in the audio stream of the Dolby Digital track”, a Dreamworks representative said, it would actually be easier to leave it the way it is than to re-encode the entire track.

With that, after New Line’s Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, “The Haunting” will be the second film to support this new, enhanced surround sound format, but still, singled-out THX EX releases that are sold separately, like we see with DTS soundtracks will certainly not appear.
