Metallica gave fans that attended San Diego's Comic-Con over the weekend a treat by premiering a new trailer and a special sneak peak of their upcoming 3D concert film Through the Never, due out on September 27.
Following the trailer, Metallica’s panel, which consisted of band members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo, along with the film’s writer/director, Nimrod Antal, producer, Charlotte Huggins, and star, Dane DeHaan, took the stage in Hall H to talk about the film and answer questions, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The group chatted about the making of the movie, including how Antal, Huggins and DeHaan signed on to the project.
“I sat down with [the band] and they immediately presented an idea, which included this amazing stage, so I thought it was really interesting. The idea was to do a narrative movie where a concert takes place," Huggins explained (via the Hollywood Reporter.)The “amazing stage,” located in Vancouver’s Rogers Arena where the band filmed two of their concerts last year, is the “star of the film” according to drummer Lars Ulrich. Singer James Hetfield also stated that it was the gigantic stage that inspired the film’s narrative.
Director and longtime friend of the band, Nimrod Antal (Predators), explained of his involvement, “I was approached by Charlotte and she wanted to bring in a narrative element [to a concert film] and was looking for a collaborative partner. It seemed like a challenge.”
The story centers around a Metallica roadie named Trip (DeHaan) who goes on a mission for the band prior to one of their concerts. The errand takes a turn for the weird when he crashes his van and wakes up in a post-apocalyptic society, having to fight his way back to complete his Metallica mission. Meanwhile, live performance footage of Metallica weaves in and out of the film, tying it all together.
Metallica also performed at Comic-Con on Friday night at the Spreckles Theatre for an intimate crowd that was chosen via lottery-style drawing.
And as far as the band’s next project goes, Lars Ulrich says the band is eyeing 2014 to start work on the follow up to 2008’s Death Magnetic, though nothing is set in stone.
