METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich and bassist Robert Trujillo recently spoke with Movie Maniacs about the band’s Metallica Through The Never. Topics of discussion include the possibility of taking the movie’s stage on the road for a real tour, favourite Metallica songs, and career alternatives:
Metallica Through The Never in IMAX 3D had the highest opening for a specialty film this past weekend. According to Deadline.com “the action/concert feature grossed over $1.67 million, easily the weekend’s highest grossing specialty newcomer, averaging $5,482. The weekend’s gross is already more than the cume of the previous film centered on the popular heavy metal band. Docu Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster cumed over $1.22 million domestically in 2004. It opened in three theaters in July of that year, averaging $15,453.”
Metallica have uploaded more behind-the-scenes footage from their film, Metallica Through The Never, which hit IMAX 3D theatres on September 27th and theatres everywhere on October 4th.
Metallica Through The Never stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs – created exclusively for film – combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.
