‘Metallica Through The Never’ Trailer Promises a Surreal Concert Movie

In Metallica Through the Never, the band is seen shredding through classics in front of thousands of people packed into a stadium, but there’s more to Nimrod Antal’s movie than meets the ear.

Interspersed in the trailer are scenes of a young roadie named Trip (Dane DeHaan) on a desperate errand for the band. His trusty van speeds him through some aggressive territory where a riot or a rebellion is in full swing.

It’s an interesting return for Antal after Predators, but the intensity and experimental format could work well for him. It reminds me a bit of Mudvayne’s Live Dosage 50 where director Phil Tuckett combined footage of the band playing Peoria with verite-style scenes of them discussing and carting a mysterious suitcase around.

Although, as you can see from this trailer, the scale is much, much bigger here:

Metallica Through the Never hits theaters August 9th.
