Reported by Outsiders - 10:42 AM 2013.07.08
On Friday, July 19, the members of METALLICA will appear at Comic-Con in San Diego, California to discuss "Metallica Through The Never", filmmaker Nimród Antal's captivating 3D movie featuring one of music's most enduring and iconic bands. The group will be in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center at 6 p.m. PT, joined by Antal; the star of the film, Dane DeHaan; and producer Charlotte Huggins. In addition, METALLICA has just announced that they will perform at a "super-secret spot" following their Comic-Con appearance. The band states: "We can't just TALK about the film when we are in San Diego... we want to play too! Following our chat in Hall H at Comic-Con, we'll be heading out to a super-secret spot to have some fun and hit the stage.
"Comic-Con attendees will have a chance to win tickets at the Hall H event and Met Club [official METALLICA fan club] members should keep their eyes peeled for more details about chances to win tickets too."
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.
