The 3D film, which will be released on October 4, was directed by Nimród Antal (who worked on Predators and Kontroll) and stars the band as themselves. Dane DeHann (The Place Beyond the Pines, Kill Your Darlings, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) plays the lead role in the film, which follows her character Trip – a young roadie sent on an urgent mission during one of the band’s shows.
