Get ready to ride the lightning. The reopened Picturehouse Entertainment released their first full trailer for its one-week, 3D, IMAX-exclusive
movie “Metallica Through the Never” at Comic-Con over the weekend.
The film is a hybrid of
classic narrative storytelling and live performance footage of Metallica
rocking out. Though the trailer makes it more than a little unclear
what exactly is going on, the press release provided this absolutely
wild plot summary:
As the band performs its most
iconic songs for thousands of their fans in a never-before-seen
performance created exclusively for the film, Trip (Dane DeHaan) is
dispatched outside the arena to meet a disabled delivery truck and
recover a mysterious item beingtransported to the show. But the
seemingly simple assignment turns into a surreal adventure when his car
is hit by an out-of-control driver. Trip, dazed and bruised, climbs out
of his van only to find himself pitched in the middle of a tense
standoff between angry protesters and charging riot police. In the
ensuing mayhem, a vicious masked horseman sets his murderous eye on Trip
while delivering indiscriminate deathblows to rioters and cops alike.
Fleeing through the desolate, post-apocalyptic urban streetscape, Trip
has only his wits to protect him as he attempts to deliver the band’s
precious cargo and avoid becoming the horseman’s next victim.
“The Place Behind the Pines” and “Chronicle” actor Dane DeHaan (as well
as each member of Metallica), the film will expand to additional
theaters after its September 27-October 3 run at IMAX theaters. Check
out the trailer below.
