SHARE Metallica’s Kirk Hammett in area to boost film about iconic band

To promote the upcoming opening weekend of “Metallica Through the Never,” members of the iconic rock band are traveling around the country — attending special screenings between Sept. 26-28.

In this area, Metallica’s lead guitarist Kirk Hammett will first greet fans at a 10 p.m. Thursday screening at the AMC Milwaukee — and then hop down to the AMC Woodfield in Schaumburg for a 12:15 a.m. screening in the wee hours of Friday morning.

“Metallica Through the Never” recently premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and stars the band members and actor Dane DeHaan in a music-driven 3D film event directed by Nimrod Antal, and co-written by Antal with Metallica’s Hammett, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo.
