Metallica 3D Movie Details, Release Date Revealed
27
The Metallica 3D movie has officially been named "Metallica Through The Never" and will be released on August 9. It won't just be a live performance on the big screen. The movie will be interspersed with a storyline featuring actor Dane DeHaan as a crew member who is sent on an urgent mission during the show. Little does he know, his world is about to be turned upside down. "Putting this movie together for the last couple of years has been a pretty wild ride, and we've definitely done our share of flying without a net," Lars Ulrich said on their website. "Some of you were kind enough to be a huge part of our three nights of filming and may be wondering just what the heck has been happening since then. Throughout the Fall and first part of this year, we've been working with director Nimród Antal and a team of editors to pull all the pieces together and so we are beyond excited to now actually have a release date and a title." While Metallica have independently funded the movie, they know it's beyond their experience to distribute it to theaters and make it a hit. That's why they've teamed up with the well-established Picturehouse to take it to cinemas and then streaming services. "Like your friends in 'Tallica, Picturehouse is truly independent, take big chances and often think outside of the box. Founder Bob Berney has overseen the releases of two of the most successful independent films ever, 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' and 'The Passion Of The Christ'," the band said. Are you excited about seeing the band onscreen in 3D, or would you rather just see them on tour? Does the new movie concept sound good to you? Share your reaction in the comments.

    I'd like to see a Metallica 3D movie called "The Call of Ktulu" where a massively extended version of that song plays while the band fights against each of HP Lovecraft's creations until they reach the final boss.

    In the style of Brutal Legend perhaps?

    But better and without Jack Black Also with Megadeth instead of Metallica Bring it you little Metallica fanboys
    eVwaylon
    90s megadeth would be great for that. nothing agaist chris or shawn but marty and nick would just fit better imo.

    I love megadeth, but i just can't handle seeing Dave the focus of anything more than megadeth. It's already hard enough with the chronic verbal diarrhea spurting from his mouth at his live shows.

    I really want to bash on this cause 3D is kind of a cheesy gimmick, but I dunno. Things are always a little different when Metallica does it. Could be cool.

    Through the Never? Not complaining but the could've chosen something fresh.
    -Retro-
    Sounds to me like a prequel to Peter Pan. Hey, at least it's not as bad as Black Sabbath's "13".
    zefs
    They obviously titled it like so because of the parallel universe theme the movie will be featuring. Go listen to Through the Never and it will make sense.

    James licks penises. He told me personally.

    I'm stoked for this! I was at one of the Vancouver shows they filmed for this!
    Eclectic Lizard
    I was at the Edmonton one an I originally thought they were gonna film that one too! Oh well, better Vancouver than Calgary, Toronto or Montreal

    Tenacious D, anybody? They need to jam "Roadie" in this one. Also, somebody has to say it... Nimrd Antal? That's a sick name and you know it.
    Asmochrist616
    Interesting. Can't wait to get this. I was totally impressed by QM. Although it would never surpass "Binge", it solidified Metallica as a solid live act after over 30 years of existence.
    eatfresh1736
    True. While they certainly still put on a sick show, it would be cool to see the raw power of early 90's alcoholic James again (minus the alcohol).
    Icarus Lives
    Can't wait to see this. I hope the story thing will be kind of like that game Brutal Legend, where the roadie is the true hero!
    KISSmyass666
    Finally now they can start working on a new album. My fingers are crossed for the end of 2014.
    ShockHazard
    So it's like a live concert, but with a fictional story too? Seems interesting, I'll surely watch this.
    ScottStewart1
    sounds cool, saw Some Kind of Monster and the Big 4 show at the movies so naturally I'm going to shell out money for this. I just wish they'd tour the West Coast again and maybe this time I won't have to travel all the way to Indio, CA. Nothing beats seeing a band live, not even a fancy 3D movie
    Not_my_username
    I hope we see megadeth vs metallica battle in the movie
    Lorand
    i don't thing we will see a battle 'coz they are in the big 4 and all the 4 band are great and they songed with each other in many concerts.and this is just what i think,we will see
    Wisthler
    Cool. I'll download it when it comes out.
    MetalSlayerLADC
    if you were a metallica fan at all then you would do and know these two things: you would spend the money to support the band and 2 you would know how much downloading has ****ed up the music buisness and how Lars Ulrich stands as a symbol of this
    thrash17
    Ok good. The bands job is done. Now get back to their other job of GETTING AN ALBUM DONE before Megadeth releases another 3 album
    PowerStruggle
    Couldn't pay me to care. This is their fourth or fifth release from that tour now? I mean I was excited for the first release, but come on now.
    Democrab
    Eh, I'd agree normally but this is one of those standout tours for them. (Others being the 1986 shows right before Cliff died, the Justice and Black Album tours and S&M) I am sick of seeing Enter Sandman live though...
