Award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) creates a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event, Metallica Through the Never. The music-driven feature film combines a bold narrative and spectacular live-performance footage of one of the most popular and influential rock bands in history to produce a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience. Emerging young star Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines, Kill Your Darlings, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena.

If you're looking for an orgasmic trip to heavy-metal heaven, this is it.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 09.26.2013
Lets viewers feel like they're sliding up and down the fretboard of Kirk Hammett's guitar, volleying between the cymbals of Lars Ulrich and swallowing spit spewed by singer James Hetfield.Jim Farber, New York Daily News, 09.26.2013
