The ‘Metallica Through the Never’ 3D film will screen on one of the world’s biggest stages as its now booked as part of the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off today (May 15) in France.

Variety reports that Exclusive Media will take the film to Cannes in order to shop it to potential backers and give it one of the world’s biggest showcases. Drummer Lars Ulrich says, “After wading through multiple international distribution options for our film, we are excited to be partnering up with the folks at Exclusive Media, who we feel understand Metallica and understand our film better than anyone else.”

He added, “Throw in the cherry-on-top, launching our international sales with a couple of screenings at the film market during a little up-and-coming film festival in Cannes, and it feels like we’re off to a pretty rockin’ start.”

Though the film features Metallica concert footage, it also focuses on a member of the band’s road crew, played by Dane DeHaan, who has his life turned completely around while running an errand during one of the band’s performances.

North American audiences will get their first taste of the movie when the band screens the film in IMAX theaters Sept. 27. The movie will then expand to other theaters on Oct. 4.
