This morning, Metallica added fuel to their fiery hype machine by releasing an official full-length trailer for their forthcoming 3D film, Through the Never. As previously reported, the part concert film, part suspense thriller was written and directed by Nimród Antal (Kontroll, Predators) and stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as 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. Judging from the footage here, it would appear that the San Francisco veterans are huge fans of Escape from New York and simply wanted to answer: “What would be the best post-apocalyptic concert?” Also, goddamn does DeHaan look bad ass. Watch below.
Metallica: Through the Never will premiere first in North American IMAX theaters on September 27th before receiving an expanded release on October 4th.
