A trailer and poster for the upcoming Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) directed Metallica 3D IMAX film Through The Never has been released and I have absolutely no idea what’s going on. However, I can say that I’m very much intrigued and that it looks awesome! Apocalyptic riots, seriously epic production value, and a concert that looks amazing all add up to a film that basically has my money.
The synopsis for the film reads, “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 is dispatched outside the arena to meet a disabled delivery truck and recover a mysterious item being transported 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 film is set to be released in 300 IMAX 3D theaters on September 27th, 2013 and will expand into more theaters on October 4th, 2013. Head on below for the trailer and poster.
