Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
There's one part in the song, "Master Of Puppets," When James Hetfield shouts, "Pancakes!" before Kirk Hammett comes in with his solo. The original lyric is supposedly be, "Fix me!" however, "Pancakes" was an inside joke that came from the former bassist, the late Cliff Burton. When Metallica was on tour with Anthrax in 1986, Cliff was asked by Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante, what was James shouting. Cliff casually answered, "Pancakes."
The release date for the USA (Sept 27, 2013) is the 27th anniversary of the death of Metallica member Cliff Burton.
The film is dedicated to the memory of Mark Fisher in the final credits. Mark Fisher was a British architect renown for his rock stage designs.
The bag which Trip was sent for is a typical MacGuffin (like the briefcase in 'Pulp Fiction').
The film's title "Through the Never" is named after the seventh track on Metallica's 1991 "black album". However, it is never performed in the film.
Dutch director Anton Corbijn was offered to helm the project, but he had to decline due to scheduling conflicts with his thriller A Most Wanted Man.
All metallica albums were represented in this film with exception of "Load" and "St. Anger"

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Some speculate that since drummer Lars Ulrich is a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, the bag the roadie was sent to recover, contained late bassist Cliff Burton's soul. Hence the ending credits where the band was playing Cliff's swansong "Orion."
