Watch: Dane DeHaan in Full Trailer for 'Metallica Through the Never'
"Another night, another show. I do what they tell me." Earlier in the summer, we got a brief glimpse of a new IMAX concert feature film from Metallica. Combining a narrative story with concert footage from the metal bands tour, Metallica Through the Never is coming to IMAX theaters in late September before hitting traditional theaters in October. Now a full trailer gives us a slightly better idea of what's going on besides a Metallica concert. Basically, Dane DeHaan is a roadie and is tasked with getting "something" the band needs that night. But when he ventures out, it appears the world begins to go to hell. It looks weird and post-apocalyptic. Also, count how many times the Metallica logo smashes some glass. Watch below!
Here's the full trailer for Nimrod Antal's Metallica Through the Never, originally from Apple:
And here's the new poster for the metal concert film featuring Dane DeHaan, originally from Yahoo:
Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned upside down. The film opens exclusively in IMAX theaters September 27th and will hit additional theaters on October 4th.

OK. I used to be a huge Metallica fan when I was younger, but this looks completely moronic. If you're making a movie, make the movie, no need to plug the band the entire way through the trailer, and more than likely movie, oh and in the title.

It's their movie, and the film story plays out as a reflection of their songs.

This is about 20 years too late. Looks terrible. The only interesting thing about this is that poster.

Some seriously grumpy folks on this site... This looks great!! Enjoying it 100% for what it is, a concert movie. A whole new level of concert movie for that matter. Bring it on!!

Quite hardcore, the jump from 480p to 1080p. They are not fucking around, no "soft-core" 720p, it's either old school 480p, or 1080p. These kids are gunna go far, mark my words.

Dane DeHaan is always someone interesting to watch. I'm thinking he'll be at Baby Goose's level within the next five years, and hopefully as big. He's great.

That would be insane in IMAX.

My first response was "this makes no sense whatsoever" and a very loud "Wut". But I guess that may be the point. My interest is piqued. Dane DeHaan is awesome and I love Metallica's music so I'll definitely see this, even if it's just to see what the hell it's about.

looks dumb as fuck. but i'd see it just for the soundtrack alone!

Nimrod Antal ain't no clown, I think this might be a cool little flick.

Metallica...example of shitty overrated rock music who's general fan base today is a group of over weight white kids, with long greasy hair, pimples and a Metallica concert t-shirt which is worn every time which is paired with white washed jeans and new bounce or van shoes.

Maybe in your neck of the woods.Most fans from my "part of town" are serious people with grown up jobs,families and kids,mortgages ..the whole nine yards.That pre-Black Album era still has a hold on people. I am sure you can make it sound like it's just a bunch of losers but trust me,it's not.Just average adults.Which to a teenager might sound like losers..just you wait till you get there buddy..some people have a hard time being average..it's not as easy as it looks...assuming you are under 20,based on your comment...

Has everyone forgotten how Metallica were poster boys for the "War on Music (Downloaders)" all those years ago?
cobrazombie on Jul 24, 2013
So the movie is a really long music video?
