Award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) creates a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event, Metallica Through the Never. The music-driven feature film combines a bold narrative and spectacular live-performance footage of one of the most popular and influential rock bands in history to produce a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience. Emerging young star Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines, Kill Your Darlings, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena audience.
Metallica Through The Never is written and directed by Nimród Antal and produced by Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film will be released by Picture house in North America on September 27, 2013, exclusively in over 300 IMAX® 3-D theaters, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4, 2013.
Recorded live at Rexell Place, Edmonton, Alberta on August 17 & 18, 2012 and at Rogers Arena, Vancouver, British Columbia on August 24, 25 and 27, 2012, the soundtrack consists of 15 classic Metallica songs - from their early work ("Hit The Lights") to the more recent ("Cyanide").
In true Metallica concrert tradition, the album kicks off with Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold" from the film, The Good The Bad, And The Ugly.
