Metallica goes Hollywood for ‘Through the Never’ movie

“I get out of (expletive) bed every day for experiences I don’t know anything about,” says drummer and admitted “movie geek” Lars Ulrich. Directed by Nimrod Antal (Predators),Through the Never intersperses a rockin’ show featuring band members Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett, singer James Hetfield and bass player Robert Trujillo with a dark fantasy narrative. The story stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Trip, a roadie and Metallica acolyte who’s sent on a mission and runs right into a seemingly post-apocalyptic situation that includes riots and a gas-masked, horse-riding harvester of sorrow the Death Dealer. “Dane has a certain intensity about him on camera that I think really fits the intensity of our music,” Hammett says. “Our fans are very, very passionate and intense in their own way, and I’m hoping when they see Dane, they can see themselves.” The band internally discussed doing an IMAX movie for a decade, during which it released the 2004 documentary Some Kind of Monster, which explored the exit of bassist Jason Newsted, Hetfield’s visit to rehab for alcohol abuse and the group struggling to stay together. The idea for a feature stayed on the back burner until about four years ago, when Metallica started hearing pitches from a variety of filmmakers.

Utah landscape creates backdrop for Hollywood magic

Wayne told me that making a Ford Western was like living in a Western. Monument Valley became such a popular backdrop for Westerns that locals began to refer to the nearby town of Kanab as ” Utah’s Little Hollywood ,” according to More than 100 movies including “Maverick” and both the 1968 and 2001 “Planet of the Apes” have been shot in this small town on Utah’s southern border. John Carter, one of the more recent films to spotlight the area, used Utahs famous red-rock deserts to recreate the red planet of Mars. Walking along the streets of Kanab, visitors can see movie memorabilia posted in shop windows or visit the Little Hollywood Museum . The town even has its own Walk of Fame that hosts the names of notable actors and directors who filmed in Kanab including Wayne, Ronald Regan and Glenn Ford.

Hollywood rebounds, but family-friendly offerings still limited

As noted in a recent New York Times article by Brooks Barnes, in just the two-month period from May 1 to July 4, studios will have put out 13 movies with budgets in excess of $100 million each a 44 percent increase over the same period in 2012. Even April a month normally considered a cinematic dumping ground saw the release of Joseph Kosinskis $120 million sci-fi actioner Oblivion, starring perennial box-office draw Tom Cruise (although it was the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 that scored the highest April numbers). Somehow, though, even with all the extra money being poured into would-be blockbusters, this summers lineup has so far felt a little bit like deja vu. In an attempt to duplicate the success of Marvels The Avengers, which grossed $1.5 billion last year, the 2013 summer movie season officially kicked off with another entry in the Marvel cinematic universe, Iron Man 3 . Robert Downey Jr.s third (and probably final) solo outing as the Armored Avenger managed to survive mixed reviews, the inevitable backlash of comic book purists and the threat of franchise fatigue to become the second highest-grossing superhero film of all time, rocketing past The Dark Knight Rises to the tune of $1.2 billion.
