The first image from Metallica's upcoming IMAX 3D movie, Metallica Through The Never, has been published by Entertainment Weekly. The photo shows the main character, a Metallica crew member played by Dane DeHaan, standing against a backdrop of flames and what appears to be an angry mob of fans. In the story, DeHaan is assigned with carrying out a mysterious task for the band as they perform at a local arena. Producer Charlotte Hugginsdescribed the film as "a dramatic movie in which a concert takes place."
Huggins added that the two shows filmed for the movie -- along with their elaborate stage production -- were done by Metallica solely for the film, explaining, "It took me seven months of working with Metallica until I grasped that they had created this very complex, very elaborate show just for our film. After we were done, that entire stage got packed up and put away."
Device and Disturbed singer David Draiman has posted online a sonogram photo of Samuel Bear Draiman, the unborn baby boy he and his wife, Japanese-American model and wrestler Lena Yada, are expecting later this year. Draiman revealed the news of the pregnancy last Thursday (May 2nd) on Twitter and also let the audience know at the Revolver Golden Gods awards that same night. Draiman and Yada were married in September 2011.

Fun fact: Star Trek wasn’t his first science fiction role.
No, that honor belongs to the B-movie Zombies of the Stratosphere. For a look at his portrayal of Narab the Zombie, check this out.
Side note: Star Trek Into Darkness comes out May 16.
Video footage has surfaced online of Metallica guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett playing the National Anthem last Friday night (May 3rd) at AT&T Park in San Francisco, where it was declared "Metallica Night." In addition to playing the Anthem, members of Metallica also threw out the first pitch for that evening's game between the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The guitars used by Hetfield and Hammett were later auctioned off for charity.
Are times that tight Goose?

It's a crime noir and suspense story. Barry Christiansen feels cursed with the gift of seeing the future, the death of others. Through years of guilt after seeing his mother murdered as a child in front of him, his guilt fuels his pursuit to save others.
Not to get all Dark Side on the minor-league Toledo Mud Hens and their upcoming "Star Wars" weekend, but these Chewbacca jerseys are not very strong with the Force. Get better rags, they must.
The Hens, the Class AAA affiliate of thesince Chewie was the size of an Ewok, no doubt will put on an entertaining party Saturday and Sunday. They've got lots of cool-sounding space plans, not the least of which would be having Hens players decked out like Chewbacca the Wookiee, the hairy best pal of scoundrel/smuggler/freedom fighter Han Solo, and first mate of the Millennium Falcon. You've heard of the Falcon. It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
It sounds cool, the concept of Chewie jerseys, until you look at them. What the heck?! The "Mud Hens" part is nice, with the feather, but Chewie's bandolier looks cheap and I don't know what's up with the camo pattern. It's got to be Chewie's hair, but that's only because we know it's got to be Chewie's hair. It looks like tall grass. Or maybe it is tall grass, like that on Chewie's home planet. Tall grass and a bandolier could reference Nicaragua in 1983, for all we know. Are these jerseys Contras or Sandinistas?
The jerseys are to be auctioned. But why would anyone want one? It's like being given the choice of seeing a prequel. Most would decline.
