Ever since Metallica Through the Never – the 3D movie featuring Metallica in concert – was first announced, I was curious to see just how writer-director Nimrod Antal (Predators) would change up the concert movie genre. Now, the first trailer for the film is available and it does a nice job of teasing the experience that awaits audiences. Starring Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as a band’s crew member whose urgent mission for the band goes terribly wrong, Metallica Through the Never also features band members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo. The film opens in IMAX 3D on September 27th and in theaters everywhere starting October 4th. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the new poster.

Here’s the official synopsis for Metallica Through the Never:
Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.
