Watch: Metallica & Dane DeHaan Rock Out In 'Metallica: Through The Never'
Metallica and IMAX could have worked together about 15 years ago, but interestingly enough, they combine their forces for this unusual hybrid film starring actor Dane DeHaan.
Titled Metallica: Through The Never, the hard rock legends join The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Dane DeHaan in this film writted and directed by Nimród Antal (2010's Predators). Half concert movie and half fictional feature film, DeHaan plays a crew member who gets handed an urgent task from the band during a gig — which results in life-changing results.
You can see the clip for yourself below:
Metallica confirmed their big screen intentions way back in January 2012, but gave away nothing else at the time. 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 in Dane DeHaan."
A UK release date has not yet been announced, but American audiences can rage out watching Metallica: Through The Never when it opens in IMAX 3D on September 27 before hitting regular cinemas on October 4.
