Metallica today announced that they will be releasing a ten-year anniversary, 2-disc Blu-Ray edition of their long out-of-print, groundbreaking movie, “Some Kind of Monster.”
It hits stores on November 24.
Originally released in 2004, “Some Kind of Monster” followed the band through three of the most turbulent years in their over three-decade long career, and gives viewers an incredibly raw and intimate look into the lives and psyches of the members of one of the most successful rock bands in music history as they battle their way through addiction, domestic life, backlash from their fans, and near-total disintegration during the making of their St. Anger album.
The documentary, directed by the award-winning team of Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary Feature.
This ten-year anniversary release marks the first time “Some Kind of Monster” will be available digitally and on Video On Demand.
The updated version will contain an additional bonus feature, “Metallica: This Monster Lives,” a 25 minute follow-up piece filmed at Toronto International Film Festival in 2013 during the release of the band’s second film, “Through the Never.”
