No, you did not read the headline wrong. The heavy metal band Metallica will be performing at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con in support of their new 3D film, Metallica Through the Never. Band members James Hetfield (vocals, guitar), Lars Ulrich (drums), Kirk Hammett (guitar, background vocals) Robert Trujillo (bass, background vocals) will join actor Dane DeHaan (who’ll also be hanging around for the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 panel), director/writer Nimród Antal (Predators) and producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth) for a panel presentation on Friday, July 19th at 6:30pm. In addition, the group will perform an “intimate private concert at a secret location in San Diego.” Only those lucky enough to get a seat in Hall H for the presentation will be able to win tickets to the concert taking place that night.
The Q&A with fans will also include the first look at the theatrical trailer for Metallica Through the Never as well as the movie’s official poster.
Metallica Through the Never opens in theaters on September 27, 2013.
Metallica Through the Never stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs — created exclusively for film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.
