Not Quite Sure How I Feel About This...

Everyone knows that Metallica is one of my all-time favorite bands. I've seen them live twice, and have even geeked out over horror comics and toys with Kirk Hammett a couple of times. Apparently, they just finished shooting a 3-D film to be called; Metallica Through The Never. The film stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as a member of the band's road crew, sent out to perform an urgent mission while James, Kirk, Robert and Lars are rocking out onstage. 

It's directed by Nimrod Antal, who made the excellent Hungarian subway thriller Kontroll, the underrated horror movie Vacancy, and of course Predators. And rather than being set up at a major studio, the movie's being distributed through Picturehouse, known for such geek-faves as Pan's Labyrinth and The King of Kong.

This is all fine and good, but is it a movie about and centered around Metallica, or a movie about a roadie intercut with live performances from Metallica? Kinda reminds me of "Detroit Rock City" - a fun movie in it's own right, but definitely not a KISS movie.
