I’m not quite sure what to make of this Metallica: Through The Never project, which joins Metallica with the likes of Justin Bieber and Katy Perry to have recent IMAX 3D concert films in theaters. Foregoing the personal documentary side of it though, the concert is cut in with what appears to be an extended metal music video starring Dane DeHaan from Chronicle (and Amazing Spider-Man 2, soon enough).

The narrative stuff too strongly recalls Romain Gavras’ “No Church in The Wild” video for my taste, but it’s possible┬áNimr├│d Antal has crafted a unique companion to the typical concert film. I always kind of wanted to make an action film scored with Metallica tracks- this might be the next best thing.
