Go big or go home appears to be the mantra for Metallica, who announced yesterday their forthcoming 3D film Metallica Through the Never will make its debut on mega-sized IMAX screens nationwide on September 27. The part-concert, part-theatrical movie will be the first film to premiere on IMAX, a fun fact not lost on drummer Lars Ulrich, who said, “To be at the forefront in this situation where IMAX has never done this is very exciting. The recognition from IMAX…is super cool.”
And there’s more….
The fifth annual Revolver magazine Golden Gods Awards ceremony and concert will take place May 2 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, and this year Metallica will be the recipients of the coveted Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award. The Bay Area band has confirmed it will be on hand to accept the honor, and will be on stage to rock the club, along with Stone Sour, Five Finger Death Punch, Anthrax, Halestorm, and Danzig, among others.
