Directed by award-winning film maker Nimrod Antal, Metallica: Through the Never, is the first live music performance to be mixed in Dolby Atmos.
The film follows the story of Trip, a young roadie working Metallica's tour who is sent on an urgent mission during the band’s live sets. The seemingly simple assignment turns into a surreal adventure when Trip’s car is hit by an out of control driver. Trip, dazed and bruised, climbs out of his van only to find himself pitched into the middle of tense stand-off between angry protesters and charging riot police. In the ensuing mayhem, a vicious masked horseman sets his murderous eye on Trip. He only has his wits to protect him as he attempts to deliver the band’s precious cargo and avoid becoming the horseman’s next victim.
Andreas Spechtler, Regional Vice President, EMEA, Dolby Laboratories, said: “Hearing one of the world’s biggest rock bands in Dolby Atmos allows the fans to feel like they are actually in the stadium experiencing the real deal. It adds an entirely new dimension to cinema sound and showcases the full capabilities of Dolby Atmos in an innovative way with maximum impact."
