Metallica have released a gripping new trailer for their forthcoming 3D movie "Through the Never," which you can see in the clip below.

This is no straightforward concert movie; it's a proper movie with a storyline that follows actor Dane DeHaan as a crew member who is sent on an urgent mission during a Metallica show, with life-changing results.

The movie is almost finished, but James Hetfield says he's getting impatient with how this and their Orion Music Festival is holding up production of the next Metallica album.

"I want it done yesterday," he told Billboard. "(Orion) and this movie is keeping us pretty busy at this point and it's taking a lot of our time and effort. We've been touring some obscure places; I guess basically what we're trying to do is pay for this movie, so the touring is keeping us from getting in there and finishing the record. Right now the focus is on the movie."

The good news: they've officially got enough new material for an album. "We've gone through maybe one-tenth of the material that's on our riffs CDs. We've got enough for an album, we just haven't had enough time to really focus on it and dial in and start whittling it into these masterpieces, hopefully," said Hetfield.

Bassist Rob Trujillo adds that progress is going well, but the album is going to take some time to complete. "The work ethic is super, super strong, and that's what takes us longer than other bands, because we're sitting there and sometimes we're really analyzing things ... But I can tell you this; the grooves and the riffs that are already on the radar are really, really awesome."

    Awesome, but couldn't have James sang a little better on MoP? For a freakin 3D movie, I mean. Instead he did his now-usual "singing" thing on a song that doesn't need it at all. In a movie everything has to be perfect, they've got enough of Live DVDs of this late-Metallica era already, where he sings this way. Surely he and the band can hear the difference?
    I was thinking the exact same thing, regardless I can't wait to see it. Even if it isn't great, it's something different and that's enough.
    It's just that he sang really, really well at the Revolver Awards recently, so what's the problem.
    Holy sh*t! It's an actual movie? I was expecting a live DVD in 3D or something, but this looks f*cking awesome!
    Jizz came out of my mouth when I saw the trailer.
    Does that mean that you're a dick head?
    Really? hahahah but seriously. This comment gets the gold medal? Who is running this website? 15 year olds?
    Everytime that bloke with the boob avatar posts something around here, there's at least 5 comments about people drooling on it... so yeah, I wouldn't doubt that.
    Does that mean youre a cocksucker? ;
    dickhead joke was classier. (somehow)
    Any release outside the US (i.e. the UK)?
    Not sure but i would bet that it will be everywhere. Metallica is kind of big thing you know
    Buuuu! We want new music. Not a stupid movie.
    Wait so... It's a Metallica movie but with an actual storyline? But the storyline doesn't reflect on the band? Fuck i'm confused
    Its the story of one of the guys working on the road crew. It somehow relates to the band...Im itching to see how they tie the concert to that story.
    I hope this movie is released worldwide. I'm sick of not being able to watch things or enter contests because I don't like in USA
    Why so many people bash MetallicA? They are the kings of Metal. They made it happen for all the bands that you now listen to. Are they now too famous for you? Go listen to your underground garbage.
    Anyone else want to see a movie about metallica history? Like take actors to play Mustaine, Hetfield, Kirk, Cliff and lars? The movie starts before metallica met, shows cliff s death and mustaine getting kicked out of the band, the fights they had and how they reacted to megadeth. It would be amazing
    well that has been stated trough numerous interviews and documentaries... so I guess there is not actual need for it.
    Even if so, so what? I would LOVE to see a Metallica history movie, which would be made a like a story of the band.
