Academy Award-nominated Glenn Freemantle will be the supervising sound editor and sound designer on the Dolby Atmos mix.

At the helm of the Pacific Rim Dolby Atmos mix (July 12, 2013) will be Academy Award-winning re-recording mixers John T. Reitz and Greg Rudloff, who will be accompanied by Tim LeBlanc. Scott Gershin will be the supervising sound editor.
