The numbers are in, and according to Box Office Mojo, the feature film METALLICA Through The Never “expanded to 589 locations, but in the process lost most of its IMAX screens to (Sandra Bullock film) Gravity. As a result, it plummeted 56 percent to $697,763. So far, the hybrid concert movie has earned just $2.7 million.”
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.
The band recently uploaded more Making-Of footage from Metallica Through The Never: “Some amazing Metallica memories from early fan Brian Lew, comedian Jim Breuer and lovable longtime Metallica front of house engineer Big Mick Hughes.”
