Metallica never do things by half in fairness. Instead of going down the old route of releasing a basic live DVD, they’re going full on 3D IMAX for their new movie/concert file, ‘Metallica Through The Never’. Details are sketchy but it’s going to be based on a Metallica concert happening in a city filled with chaos where one of their road crew gets sent on a mission and so on.
The first image was released this week (can be viewed there at the side) and the film has officially IMAX release date of September 27th. Filming of the Metallica scenes took place last year in Canada on a stage custom built for the movie. Dane DeHaan stars as the main character…well, aside from Lars, James, Robert and Kirk of course.
It’s been a while since Metallica made a move that excited me (three years and counting lads – get back to Dublin!) but this project sounds like it’ll be well worth watching. The movie will be generally released in October.
