Metallica today announced that their groundbreaking 3D feature film, Metallica Through The Never, directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal, will be released on DVD, 2D and 3D Blu-ray and all digital platforms in January 2014 through Entertainment One. The DVD and Blu-ray will include extensive behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film, including an 80+ minute Making Of Metallica Through The Never documentary, various interviews with the cast and crew and never before seen Metallica content.

Metallica fans will also be able to purchase a limited-edition deluxe package containing a piece of the actual stage used in the film, a lithograph print autographed by all four band members and more. Full details of the package are below. The digital format will include the feature film, as well as the Making Of Metallica Through The Never documentary.

The press release provides the following, superlative peppered summary:

Metallica Through the Never stars Metallica [no kidding], one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. In the music-driven, 3D motion picture event, filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica's most iconic songs – created exclusively for film – combined with a bold narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band's trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built, state-of-the-art 3D photography captured on up to 24 cameras simultaneously and pioneering and innovative sound mixing utilizing a celebrated and award-winning audio team from both the film and music worlds.

Metallica Through the Never will be released on UK DVD, 2D and 3D Blu-ray and video-on-demand on 27th January 2014 by Entertainment One at the RRP of £15.99 for the DVD and £19.99 for the Blu-ray.
