"Through the Never" tells the story of a band crew member named Trip (played by Dane DeHaan) who is sent out on a mission during Metallica's live set in front of a sold-out arena: to meet a disabled truck and retrieve a particular item. However, the routine task turns into a surreal odyssey when Trip's van is hit by another vehicle, and he subsequently finds himself up against a death-dealing horseman. As Trip flees through desolate streets, he has only his wits to help him avoid the deadly horseman and deliver Metallica's cargo.
The movie will make its world premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, September 9 at 7:30 PM.
"Through The Never" will then debut in IMAX theatres across North America for a one-week engagement starting Friday, September 27, before it expands into additional theatres on October 4.
