Metallica Movie Trailer
Metallica Movie Trailer

Metallica frontman James Hetfield told Billboard on Wednesday (May 22nd) that the band has “enough material for a record,” but explained that its upcoming film, Metallica Through The Never, is the reason they haven’t started recording: [“I want it to be done yesterday, and you know, this movie is keeping us pretty busy at this point and it’s taking a lot of our time and effort. We’re having to tour some obscure places to pay for this movie, so we’re having to go make some money, so the touring is keeping us from getting in here and finishing the record. Right now the focus is the movie.”]

  • Metallica Through The Never will open on IMAX screens in the U.S. on September      27th, with a wider release following on October 4th. The first trailer for      the film surfaced on Wednesday night (May 22nd).
  • The movie stars Dane DeHaan has a member of the      band’s road crew who is sent on a mysterious mission while the group      headlines a concert at an arena. The film is said to mix a conventional      storyline with concert footage.
  • Drummer Lars Ulrich is currently attending the Cannes      Film Festival in France, where the movie is being shopped to      international distributors.
  • Meanwhile, Hetfield also said about the music for the      band’s 10th studio effort, “We’ve gone through maybe one-tenth of the      material that’s on our riffs CDs. We’ve got enough for an album, we just      haven’t had enough time to really focus on it and dial in and start      whittling it into these masterpieces, hopefully.”
  • The new Metallica album is not likely to emerge before      late 2014 at least, if not later.
  • The band will headline its second annual Orion Music      + More festival on Belle Island in Detroit on June 8th and 9th, with a      lineup including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones, Silversun      Pickups and more.
