Friday, 30th August 2013

METALLICA’s first public screening of Metallica: Through The Never in the US will be right in their own backyard at the beautiful historic Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center in San Rafael, CA on Tuesday, September 17th at 7:15 PM for this special kick-off event prior to the 36th annual Mill Valley Film Festival.

Says the band: “We’ll all be on hand for a post screening interview and audience Q&A with the founder of the festival and Executive Director of the California Film Institute, Mark Fishkin. Join us to watch the film, hang out, and talk about Through The Never. More info and tickets:”

IMAX Corporation and Picturehouse have announced that Metallica Through The Never will be digitally remastered into the immersive IMAX 3D format and released wide in North America exclusively into IMAX theatres for a one-week engagement starting Friday, September 27. The film will expand into additional theatres on October 4.

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 award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, “Kontroll”) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (“Journey To The Center Of The Earth”). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by 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 completely upside down.

The IMAX 3D release of Metallica Through The Never will be digitally remastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
