CBS“Sunday Morning” program featured METALLICA earlier today (Sunday, September 29) on “For The Record”. They talked about the good times — and bad — they experienced since their formation more than three decades ago in Southern California. You can now watch the segment below.

METALLICA‘s “Metallica Through The Never” film officially opened on Friday (September 27) for an exclusive week-long run on IMAX screens before expanding to other theaters on October 4.

“We decided we needed to make this unique,” METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett told QMI Agency about the “Through The Never” movie. “So we came up with the concept of having a running narrative in the movie that weaves in and out of the concert footage. We liked that idea enough to tell our managers, ‘This is the type of movie we want to make.'”

“I think that METALLICA fans that are really into action films and movies with a lot of energy are going to be blown away,” METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told Revolver magazine. “This is a very unique film. I don’t know what people are going to think of it. I like it. But obviously I’m biased.”

METALLICA reportedly spent $20 million of its own money to make the film, which was screened at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas this past Wednesday (September 25).

The soundtrack, which features a number of METALLICA classics performed live in the movie, was released on September 24. The two-disc CD came out on METALLICA‘s own label, Blackened Recordings, also in digital and vinyl formats.

The concert sequences for the movie were shot in August 2012 at two shows in Vancouver, Canada and feature a stage containing elements of many of METALLICA‘s previous live productions from the past 30 years.

METALLICA members Lars Ulrich (drums) and Robert Trujillo (bass) took part in a news conference and interview at RIA Novosti‘s press center this past Saturday (September 14) before the Russian premiere of their new movie, “Metallica Through The Never”, in Moscow. Official video footage of the question-and-answer session can be seen below.

“There was a lot of times in this movie where we’re like, ‘No way, we can’t do this. Let’s just pull the plug,” said METALLICA frontman James Hetfield. “From the money it’s gonna take to make this thing, how long it’s gonna take to even break even; our kids could still have the bill for this thing.”

In an interview with CNN this past July, Hetfield said that a lot of thought went into creating the exact right film for METALLICA.

“People have done live concerts,” Hetfield said. “We’ve done live concerts and DVDs. If we’re going to invest a lot of time and money and effort into something, let’s make it unique. That’s what we’ve always done. We had a ton of ideas for this thing. You get really creative with something way out of your budget and then you shrink it down. Some of the best ideas hang on and end up in the film. We wanted animation, we wanted CGI — you name it! But I think the narrative is extremely potent and multilayered. There’s a lot of dynamics going on at once. It’s a couple movies in one.”
