METALLICA's much-anticipated $4-million documentary, "Some Kind of Monster", premiered at the 47th annual San Francisco Film Festival at the Castro Theater in San Francisco, California on Sunday (April 18). Check out pictures from Wire Image.
As previously reported, "Some Kind of Monster" is expected to be released in early July in small theaters in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, with plans to show the movie in other U.S. markets by the fall.
According to Joe Berlinger, who directed the movie along with Bruce Sinofsky, "Some Kind of Monster" will hit VHS and DVD early next year in what is likely to be two editions: a double-disc set composed of the movie and plenty of bonus footage, and a four-disc box featuring the movie plus as much as four and a half hours of edited footage that didn't make the film. There's also a good possibility that a soundtrack will accompany the DVD release, Berlinger said, adding that it would likely feature songs recorded during sessions that were left off "St. Anger".
METALLICA have struck a service deal with IFC Pictures, in which the band will pick up all the marketing costs in order to control distribution of the film.
