METALLICA Set Theatrical Release Date For 'Some Kind Of Monster'

METALLICA have set a July 9 theatrical release date for their much-anticipated $4-million documentary, "Some Kind of Monster". The film is initially expected to be released in small theaters in such cities as New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, with plans to show the movie in other U.S. markets by the fall.

Joe Berlinger, who directed the movie along with Bruce Sinofsky, had previously said that "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".

As previously reported, 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.
