“Let’s hear it for the old school soundtrack!” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. Not only are we beyond psyched about our movie coming your way shortly, but the fact that we get to share the music directly in all these formats is way fuckin’ cool.”
Metallica Through the Never stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs — created exclusively for film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography.
Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously. Hopscotch eOne will release Metallica Through the Never in Australia and New Zealand on October 10, 2013 in selected cinemas & IMAX® Theatres for one week only!
