What Do You Think of the First Trailer for 'Metallica Through the Never'?

By May 24, 2013

Follow me on:

As you may know, Metallica will be releasing their first 3D concert movie on September 27. Called Metallica Through the Never, the film is rather unconventional in that it features both a narrative -- about a band crew member, played by Dane DeHaan, on a special assignment -- and performance footage from a Metallica show. The first trailer has been revealed, and it definitely showcases both sides of the film's concept. So how do we think it'll look?

On Wednesday, the trailer hit the web, and I confess that I'm a little concerned. Admittedly, it really is intriguing to see how director Nimrod Antal meshes the live songs and the story, but this first trailer makes it look more like a big spectacle than anything else. With that said, to see and hear Metallica songs on the big screen in 3D and IMAX could be a treat. (I still say one of the best recent 3D movies was U2 3D.) But Through the Never's storyline, what little of it we can see, doesn't seem all that interesting. My fear is that, while watching this movie, I'm just going to keep impatiently waiting for them to cut back to the Metallica concert whenever the plot kicks in.

That's my take. What's yours?
