The long-awaited 3D concert film from Metallica will be making its debut tonight (September 9) at the Toronto Film Festival.
Metallica: Through the Never, directed by Nimrod Antal (Predators) mixes live performance elements that were filmed during a two-show stint in Vancouver last summer, as well as a fictional narrative starring Dane DeHaan.
DeHaan, who will appear in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man sequel, plays Trip, a young roadie for the band who has been sent out on an errand before a concert. While driving, his van is struck by another vehicle, and when he awakes, he finds that he has entered a post-apocalyptic world which he has to fight his way back from to complete his mission for Metallica.
According to the official press release, the film’s live performance footage will feature the most elaborate concert stage ever built, and with 24 cameras that used state-of-the-art 3D photography to film James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo rocking out, fans will truly see Metallica like never before.
Metallica: Through the Never will open in IMAX theaters on September 27 and in theaters everywhere on October 4.
