Metal giants Metallica have officially revealed release details regarding their upcoming 3D movie "Metallica Through the Never."
The film is now set for a September 27 premiere in IMAX theaters across North America.
According to the official announcement
, the movie will be screened in each and every one of over 300 North American IMAX cinemas for an entire week. The projections will then expand into additional theaters starting on October 4.
The main storyline revolves around a Metallica crew member, played by Dane DeHaan
, being sent out on a mission during the band's concert just to have his life "unexpectedly turned completely upside down."
"IMAX! It doesn't get bigger or cooler than that!"
drummer Lars Ulrich says. "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. 'Hey look, Mom, I'm 50 feet tall (finally!)' 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."
The group is currently busy "editing and putting the finishing touches,"
inviting fans to stay tuned on their official website for more exclusive details.
"With so many of you playing a very important role on those nights, we are anxious to begin to share it all with you very soon and we'll see you in the theaters this Fall,"
the four-piece concludes.
