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.

The members of METALLICA made select personal appearances at theaters around the country starting this past Thursday (September 26) to celebrate the release of “Metallica Through The Never”. The film officially opened on Friday (September 27) for an exclusive week-long run on IMAX screens before expanding to other theaters on October 4.

Video footage of METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich‘s appearance AMC in Norwalk, California — just down the street from where METALLICA was born in Downey — on Friday can be seen below.

A new behind-the-scenes clip from the making of METALLICA‘s new 3D IMAX movie, “Metallica Through The Never”, can be seen below. In the latest clip, years of production all comes down to this as METALLICA films the concert portions of “Metallica Through The Never” over the course of two mega-nights in Vancouver, Canada.

“Metallica Through The Never” officially opened on Friday (September 27) for an exclusive week-long run on IMAX screens before expanding to other theaters on October 4. The film’s surreal narrative winds its way through the concert footage, in which a roadie played by Dane DeHaan finds himself in an increasingly hostile urban environment while on a mission for the band. Bassist Robert Trujillo told The Pulse Of Radio what he thinks it all means. “My take on it is there’s two worlds,” he said. “When you’re in a concert venue with METALLICA, it could seem like the most perfect environment. But beyond those walls of the venue, you have mayhem and it could be anything. It could be anarchy. There are problems beyond those walls that exist with what’s happening in that bubble of, you know, this perfect world of music and metal.”

“[Director] Nimród [Antal] came up with the story line,” METALLICA frontman James Hetfield said. “It really is two movies in one. We wanted to have the best concert footage ever filmed and also have a story line and give it some legs that will be open for interpretation. There are so many metaphors in there. And there’s no good side or bad side. There’s just turmoil. That’s just a part of human nature — fight or flight at times. For me, when the rider shows up he’s the embodiment of hate. And then there’s fire. Of course. You gotta have fire.”

“Metallica Through The Never” sees the band performing on a massive stage, specially constructed for the film, that incorporates elements of METALLICA live shows from the past 30 years.

“The idea to bring back some of the gags from the ’80s, when we were a little more theatrical, was that there are so many kids nowadays who have only heard about statues and crosses and so on,” said METALLICA drummer Ulrich. “So it was sort of like METALLICA has generally shied away from being too retro. But five years ago, when we were with [producer] Rick Rubin working on [METALLICA‘s latest album] ‘Death Magnetic’, he started encouraging us to be inspired by our past and not run away from it. So that’s why we decided to bring back some of those gags, 2012-style. It was time to maybe be okay with sharing that with younger kids without feeling like we were turning into a retro band.”
