Picturehouse announced today that Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo will make two in-theater appearances in San Antonio at Santikos Palladium and Silverado Theaters in celebration of Metallica Through the Never. Trujillo will introduce the film Saturday, October 5 at the Santikos Palladium 7:30pm and Santikos Silverado 9:50pm shows. Tickets available at movietickets.com.
Trujillo joined Metallica in 2003, after playing for such acts as Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves and Ozzy Osbourne. Growing up in Venice Beach, Trujillo played with a variety of local bands throughout his early 20s before meeting Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies. In the early ’90s Trujillo and Muir formed the experimental funk-rock outfit Infectious Grooves. A few years later Trujillo teamed up with Ozzy Osbourne and together with drummer Mike Bordin, Trujillo anchored one of rock music’s most reliable rhythm sections. Robert Trujillo was discovered by Metallica when Suicidal Tendencies opened for them during the 1994 Summer Shed Tour. After Jason Newsted left the band in 2001, Metallica considered Trujillo an obvious choice to replace him. Producer Bob Rock noted that with Trujillo playing, the band sounded complete and unequivocally whole.
Metallica Through the Never recently premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival and stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history, and critically acclaimed actor, Dane DeHaan. Metallica Through the Never is a music-driven, 3D motion picture event directed by Nimród Antal and co-written by Antal with Metallica’s James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo.
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 the film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines) portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during 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 and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.
Metallica Through the Never opens exclusively at select IMAX® theatres nationwide on September 27th and will expand into additional theatres and cities on Oct. 4th.
