‘Metallica Through the Never’ 3D Film Added to Austin’s Fantastic Fest 2013
Metallica are making a date with Austin, Texas this fall. The group, who recently announced they would hold the first public screening of their 3D ‘Metallica Through the Never’ film at the Mill Valley Film Festival near their home base of San Rafael, Calif., has just announced the 3D flick will also be part of Austin’s Fantastic Fest on Sept. 25.
The Fantastic Fest is held each year at the Paramount Theater and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin and is known as the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in fantasy, sci-fi, action and horror films. Metallica’s new 3D adventure definitely fits a couple of those categories.
In their announcement revealing their participation in the festival, Metallica’s website stated, “We do have a few surprises scheduled for you in Austin, so keep watching for more details coming soon.”
The movie centers on a Metallica roadie named Trip (Dane DeHaan), who is tasked with completing an urgent mission for the group while they perform their set. The Fantastic Fest screening of the film will take place on Sept. 25 at 7PM Austin time.
Meanwhile, fans anxious to see the film in other cities can look for it opening in IMAX theaters on Sept. 27, then expanding to traditional theaters on Oct. 4.
