Heavy metal legends Metallica have announced that their 3D film, “Metallica Through the Never,” will be released September 27, 2013 in North America as a limited engagement in IMAX theaters. The film will expand one week later on October 4, 2013. The film was written and directed by NimrÃ³d Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by Charlotte Huggins (Journey To The Center Of The Earth).
Drummer Lars Ulrich comments, â€œIMAX! It doesnâ€™t get bigger or cooler than that!. For four guys in a rock band of average height, to get a chance to unleash their 3D film on IMAX screens the size of buildings across the country is a mind-blowing thought. â€˜Hey look, Mom, Iâ€™m 50 feet tall (finally!)â€™ There is no better way to experience film and when you throw in the spectacle of music and sound this should amount to an unprecedented, unique and truly next level experience.â€
The film tells the story of, â€œâ€¦band crew member (played by Dane DeHaan) who is sent out on a mission during Metallicaâ€™s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.â€œ
