It's not exactly a trailer, but this short film, "Metallica: Amped for IMAX" achieves the same goal as a trailer -- it gives you a good idea of what to expect from the film, in this case, "Metallica Through the Never," which will be released exclusively in over 250 IMAX 3D theaters on September 27 before expanding to additional theaters on October 4.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimrod
Antal, the film immerses audiences in a sold-out Metallica concert featuring the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and 3D photography captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously. Whether or not you're a Metallica fan, you'll appreciate the film's incredible production values (but keep in mind that they handed out ear plugs at the press screening).
As an added bonus for fans, Metallica's James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and
Robert Trujillo will make in-theater appearances in celebration of the opening weekend of "Metallica Through the Never" at select IMAX theaters around the country September 26th - 28th, the film's distributor Picturehouse announced.
