Metallica’s Through the Never Gets a Home Video Release Date
If you’re one of the millions of people who didn’t see Metallica’s Through the Never in theaters, you’ll get a chance to check it out from the comfort of your very own couch next year: the film will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, digitally, and V.O.D. on January 28. Sez a press release:
“Formats will include a standard 2-disc package on DVD, Blu-ray, or 3D Blu-ray, as well as special expanded versions. The DVDs and Blu-ray, 3D 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.”
So, okay! That is happening! I’m a little surprised they’re not getting it done in time for Christmas, not just so fans could purchase it as a gift, but also to remind Academy voters to nominate it for Best Picture. I mean, it probably has a real run at taking down 12 Years a Slave, right?
