“Metallica: Through the Never” is due to hit theaters in August. The band’s compilation of songs performed and filmed in Vancouver last August will be released as a full feature film on August 9, 2013, under the title of one of their songs, “Through the Never.”
Yes, there will be an actual plot to this concert style movie. A younger crewmember is being sent out on a mission during the live Metallica concert, in front of a sold-out crowd. He is shocked to find his whole world upside down. “Metallica: Through the Never” will be filmed in 3D to make the concert even better. For all of you Metallica fans drooling on your keyboards, who cares about a plot, eh? Let’s just be thankful for a chance to see Metallica in 3D during a concert.
“Metallica: Through the Never” has also been hailed, “Metallica 3D.” The movie takes us on a musical journey but is also a chance to view a documentary about the band and their difficulties through the years.
The cast will, for the most part, be the group members. Dane DeHaan will be co-starring in this fun musical journey. DeHaan is most known for his character in the dramatic series, “In Treatment,” on HBO. He was in “Chronicle” in 2012, “Lawless” in 2012, in “Lincoln” in 2012 and in “Kill Your Darlings” in 2013.
The band includes Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo.
Toby Hargrave will be playing “Big Man” in the production, along with Stephanie Keane Patterson in the role of an audience member by her actual name.
Behind the Scenes:
Nimrod Antal is the brains behind the film, “Metallica: Through the Never.” Antal has some power behind him in the filmmaking business. He was also responsible for directing “Predators,” “Armored,” “Vacancy,” “Kontroll” and a couple of short films as well. Antal has written the documentary film, “Metallica: Through the Never.”
Picturehouse has opened up a new entertainment venue with the release of “Metallica 3D.” Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth,” and other large hits have been released and marketed by Picturehouse.
“Metallica 3D” will be the second heavy metal band’s chance at the big screen. In 2004, a documentary titled “Some Kind of Monster” gave viewers a glimpse into the band’s economic struggles during the earlier part of 2000, when the Internet seemed to flex its muscle into everyone’s pre-social media technology businesses. “Metallica 3D” is expected to take fans to a new level of enjoyment.
Metallica is most likely going to host concerts before the release of the film. So far, the only scheduled concerts lie outside the U.S. grasps, in Australia, Brazil, and Japan and in South Africa.
In August, be prepared to get your head bangin’ on. We’re going to have a 3D musical, heavy metal style. Old school isn’t so bad after all.
