Nadia Neophytou of MissNtertainment.com talked to METALLICA's Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo, as well as award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal ("Predators", "Kontroll") about the groundbreaking 3-D motion picture "Metallica Through The Never" — and about surfing in South Africa. You can watch the interviews below."Metallica Through The Never" opened on 308 IMAX screens this past weekend and earned $1.7 million, making it the biggest IMAX opening for a concert film ever. The movie, which expanded to more theaters this weekend, ranked 13th on the overall box office chart. Financed by the METALLICA members themselves at a budget of $18 million, "Metallica Through The Never" is the first new release via Picturehouse, the full-service independent film marketing and distribution company started in 2005, which reopened its doors with founder Bob Berney at the helm. The film, written and directed by Nimród Antal ("Kontroll", "Predators"), stars members of the iconic rock band and Dane DeHaan ("Chronicle", "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"). DeHaan plays a young band crew member who is sent out on an urgent mission while the band is playing a rousing live set in front of a sold-out crowd and unexpectedly finds his world turned completely upside down. The soundtrack, which features a number of METALLICA classics performed live in the movie, was released on September 24. The two-disc CD came out on METALLICA's own label, Blackened Recordings, also in digital and vinyl formats.
