Metallica has released the first trailer to their upcoming 3D film, Metallica: Through The Never. The film was written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth).
The film marries groundbreaking concert footage taken from Vancouver last summer and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by Dane DeHaan of The Amazing Spider Man 2) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena where he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.
The trailer is largely based on live concert footage of the band performing “Master Of Puppets,” but also features part of the narrative in which DeHaan gets involved in a traffic accident that puts him face-to-face with an angry mob.
Metallica: Through The Never is named after a track from the band’s hugely successful 1991 self titled album, also known as The Black Album. The film debuts in IMAX 3D theaters exclusively September 27th before opening everywhere October 4th.
