Heavy metal rockers Metallica have been making music for decades and have sold over 100 million album; band members are never afraid to push the envelope and “fly without a net” as drummer Lars Ulrich puts it. Their latest project is a 3D movie set to be released in August. "Metallica's way of doing things is to jump into unexplored creative endeavors with no safety net whatsoever. Putting this movie together for the last couple of years has been a pretty wild ride, and we've definitely done our share of flying without a net,” said Metallica founding member Lars Ulrich.

The live performances for the movie - “Metallica Through the Never” was filmed last August over a three night period before a full house in Vancouver, British Columbia. The band and director Nimrod Antal are currently putting it all together for the big theatrical release on Aug. 9.

The premise of the movie is that a young crew member for the band – played by Dane DeHaan – is sent on an urgent mission and finds his world turned upside down; all while the band is playing before a packed house.

Throughout their career Metallica have won eight Gramy Awards, have two Diamond Awards for selling at least 10 million copies of a single album in the United States, numerous multi platinum albums, been inducted into the San Francisco Walk of Fame, MTV Video Music Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Governor's Award, Kerrang! Awards Hall of Fame, and are members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
