The first image from Metallica's upcoming IMAX 3D movie, Metallica Through The Never, has been published by Entertainment Weekly. The photo shows the main character, a Metallica crew member played by Dane DeHaan, standing against a backdrop of flames and what appears to be an angry mob of fans. In the story, DeHaan is assigned with carrying out a mysterious task for the band as they perform at a local arena. Producer Charlotte Huggins described the film as "a ­dramatic movie in which a concert takes place."

Huggins added that the two shows filmed for the movie -- along with their elaborate stage production -- were done by Metallica solely for the film, explaining, "It took me seven months of working with Metallica until I grasped that they had created this very complex, very elaborate show just for our film. After we were done, that entire stage got packed up and put away."
