CBS' "Sunday Morning" program featured METALLICA earlier today (Sunday, September 29) on "For The Record". They talked about the good times — and bad — they experienced since their formation more than three decades ago in Southern California. You can now watch the segment below.
METALLICA's new movie, "Metallica Through The Never", opened a one-week limited run in IMAX theaters on Friday (September 27),before expanding to more screens around the country on October 4. The film, a blend of concert movie and fictional narrative, stars Dane DeHaan as a member of METALLICA's road crew who is sent on a mysterious mission while the band performs at a sold-out arena and events outside grow more bizarre.
The Pulse Of Radio asked bassist Robert Trujillo if he could name a part of the movie that was his favorite. "There's a lot of favorite parts," he said. "It's hard, there's so much going on and there's a lot of exciting moments. At the end of the day, the whole idea is really, you know, you're going on a roller coaster ride and it's going to be an adventure. Embrace it, hold on and have a good time."
Trujillo, frontman James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist Kirk Hammett co-wrote the movie with director Nimród Antal, whose previous films include "Vacancy" and "Predators".
The concert sequences for the movie were shot in August 2012 at two shows in Vancouver, Canada and feature a stage containing elements of many of METALLICA's previous live productions from the past 30 years.
James Hetfield told a Brazilian TV station earlier in the month that the concert footage in the film was "better than going to a show."
The soundtrack, which features a number of METALLICA classics performed live in the movie, came out on Tuesday (September 24) and is the first official release on METALLICA's own label, Blackened Recordings.
