Metallica reveal first trailer for ‘Through The Never’ movie – watch

3D movie stars rising Hollywood actor Dane DeHaan

The first trailer for Metallica‘s 3D movie has been revealed online. Scroll down to watch.

Titled Metallica – Through The Never, is unusual hybrid of concert movie and fictional feature film. Actor Dane DeHaan, best known for roles in Chronicle and The Place Beyond The Pines, plays a crew member who gets given an urgent mission during a gig – with life-changing results.

Metallica confirmed that they were working on a 3D movie project back in January 2012, but gave away little else at the time. The film was written and directed by Nimr√≥d Antal, whose previous credits include 2010’s Predators.

Bob Berney, president of distributors Picturehouse, told The Wrap: “Nim and the band have made a film that really captures the spirit of Metallica and their millions of loyal fans. It’s an entertaining genre film with a concert inside it, a fun ride featuring an exciting young actor, Dane DeHaan.”

Metallica – Through The Never will open in IMAX 3D on September 27 in the US, before transferring to regular cinemas on October 4. A UK release date has not yet been announced.

Meanwhile, Metallica’s James Hetfield has offered fans an update on the band’s new album, saying: “I want it done yesterday.”
