Marketed and distributed by the newly reshaped Picturehouse, Metallica Through the Never tells the story of a live show gone wrong with actor Dane DeHaan who was recently cast in The Amazing Spider Man 2.

“DeHaan plays a young band crew member who is sent out on an urgent mission while the band is playing a rousing live set in front of a sold-out crowd and unexpectedly finds his world turned completely upside down,” read the official statement from the band.

As for how the guys of Metallica feel about the title and release date for Through the Never, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo have a lot more in store in the coming weeks and months.
