Metallica Win Movie Award

(Gibson) Metallica's 2013 IMAX 3D concert film, Metallica Through The Never, has won the "Best 3D Documentary" award at the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society's Creative Arts Awards in California.

Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich and bassist Robert Trujillo accepted the award in person, with Ulrich telling the crowd, "Four years ago, when we got this idea - we had no idea what this move would be - other than we knew that it was going to be in 3D."

Metallica Through The Never arrived on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, video-on-demand and digital on January 28 via the band's own Blackened Recordings label. The movie cost $18 million to make. It reportedly made less than $4 million in its initial U.S. box office run last fall.

Guitarist Kirk Hammett has admitted he was disappointed that it didn't do better. "You know, I really, really felt that we had put our all into this movie," he told The Pulse Of Radio. "I mean, we spent a lot of time making it, we spent a lot of time editing it in post-production and making sure that it was exactly what we wanted it to be. We spent a lot of time making sure it sounded up to par with, you know, all our other stuff. And, you know, it's just amazing because other than our fans, no one else was interested in the movie. [laughs]."

Ulrich is positive about it, adding, it "gave us a chance to experience a whole other way of being creative and having a creative outlet. We were very inspired by making that [movie], and now we're energized to make a record. The film was fun, but it's all about the next record." more on this story
