METALLICA'S 'THROUGH THE NEVER' MOVIE ARRIVES ON HOME VIDEO
Metallica's 2013 IMAX 3D concert film, Metallica Through The Never, arrives on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, video on demand and digital on Tuesday (January 28th) through the band's own Blackened Recordings label. The $18 million film, which combined concert footage with a fictional narrative, made less than $4 million in its initial box office run last fall.
Guitarist Kirk Hammett admitted he was disappointed that it didn't do better: "You know, I really, really felt that we had put our all into this movie. I mean, we spent a lot of time making it, we spent a lot of time editing it in post-production and making sure that it was exactly what we wanted it to be. We spent a lot of time making sure it sounded up to par with, you know, all our other stuff. And, you know, it's just amazing because other than our fans, no one else was interested in the movie (laughs)." , giving a special performance of the band's 1988 song "One" with Chinese pianist Lang Lang.
It was the band's first appearance on the music awards telecast since 1992.
