METALLICA's new film, "Metallica Through The Never", opens exclusively at select IMAX theatres nationwide on September 27 and will expand into additional theatres and cities on October 4.In the one-and-a-half-minute IMAX video short below, check out what it takes to get one of the biggest-selling acts in American history amped. "We decided we needed to make this unique," METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett told QMI Agency about the "Through The Never" movie. "So we came up with the concept of having a running narrative in the movie that weaves in and out of the concert footage. We liked that idea enough to tell our managers, 'This is the type of movie we want to make.'" "I think that METALLICA fans that are really into action films and movies with a lot of energy are going to be blown away," METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told Revolver magazine. "This is a very unique film. I don’t know what people are going to think of it. I like it. But obviously I’m biased." The soundtrack, which features a number of METALLICA classics performed live in the movie, will be out on September 24. The two-disc CD will come out on METALLICA's own label, Blackened Recordings, also in digital and vinyl formats. The concert sequences for the movie were shot in August 2012 at two shows in Vancouver, Canada and feature a stage containing elements of many of METALLICA's previous live productions from the past 30 years.
