Metallica's ''Tallica Parking Lot' Animated Film to Be Screened At Comic-Con International
"'Tallica Parking Lot", an animated film created by Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and Titmouse Animation Studio, will be screened on July 25 at San Diego Comic-Con International, a multigenre entertainment and comic convention held annually in San Diego, California. Following the screening, there will be a question-and-answer session with Trujillo, Kirk Hammett and Chris Prynoski of Titmouse moderated by "So What!" editor and writer Steffan Chirazi. For more information, go here.

"'Tallica Parking Lot" was premiered at the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas on September 25, 2013. The soundtrack to the film has "big, energetic beats as the animations panned through 2D and 3D views of the fans that pre-game at Metallica shows," according to HitFix. "I wrote most of [the music for] it, but James Hetfield had a heavy hand in helping me finish it," Trujillo told AMFM Magazine. "It's an original music score by Metallica. It has some very cool cameos that range from 'South Park' to 'Beavis & Butthead' and Lemmy from Motorhead."

He added: "Just like [Metallica's new 3D movie] 'Through the Never," you're part of the creation of something, and to see it come to life on the screen, especially when it's animated, is really special."

"'Tallica Parking Lot" takes its title from "Heavy Metal Parking Lot," the classic 1986 documentary short that captured fans tailgating before a Judas Priest and Dokken gig. After being passed around as a bootleg for years, it eventually earned a DVD release that added more than two hours of bonus material.
