Metallica fans will be able to experience the band's upcoming 3D movie on the really big screens of IMAX a week before the film is released to traditional theaters.
The movie "Metallica Through The Never" is to hit IMAX theaters across North American for a one week engagement beginning on September 27th.
Here is part of the synopsis for the film: "crew member (played by Dane DeHaan-Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) 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. "
Here is what the band had to say, "If you've been following along, you know that we're pretty damn excited about the upcoming release of our 3D film, Metallica Through the Never. Today we have big news as the movie goes extreme next level with IMAX! Starting September 27, 2013 our movie will be shown exclusively on EVERY single screen in EVERY single IMAX theatre in North America for a full week. That's over 300 theatres that we'll be unleashing Through The Never to... an IMAX first! There really is no better way than this to experience film and promises to amount to an unprecedented and very unique visit to the movies.
"Don't have an IMAX theatre nearby? No problem! The movie will roll into additional theatres in full 3D one week later on October 4. In the meantime we're editing and putting the finishing touches on the film, so keep watching here for many more details, photos, and video clips from our live extravaganza filmed last summer in Vancouver. With so many of you playing a very important role on those nights, we are anxious to begin to share it all with you very soon and we'll see you in the theatres this Fall!"
