SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Bay Area heavy metal band Metallica has been quite busy in recent weeks promoting their new featured length concert film “Metallica: Through The Never” set to release this weekend.

Just after the film’s star-studded world premiere at the AMC Metreon in San Francisco, Frontman James Hetfield makes a return to the same theater on Thursday September 26 to introduce the film to eager fans during a screening. Hetfield will also be in attendance the following day, during a premiere at the AMC Emeryville.

About The Film:
Award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (“Predators,” “Kontroll”) creates a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event, “Metallica Through the Never.” The music-driven feature film combines a bold narrative and spectacular live-performance footage of one of the most popular and influential rock bands in history to produce a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience.

Emerging young star Dane DeHaan (“The Place Beyond the Pines,” “Kill Your Darlings,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena.

CBS Bay Area and’s Franco Finn was on the red carpet at the world premiere of “Metallica: Through The Never” when he asked Hetfield and guitarist Kirk Hammett what it was like to world premiere their movie in their own hometown.

Metallica: Through The Never opens in theaters Friday, September 27.
