11 Movie Predictions You Can Take To The Bank

11. Metallica Will Compose The Score To A Movie

metallica Whether you're a fan of their music or not, there is no denying that Metallica are one of the biggest bands in the world, selling hundreds of millions of records worldwide and becoming the first band in history to have five studio albums in a row debut at the top of the Billboard 200. The four-piece outfit are also one of music's great trailblazers, recently becoming the only artists to play on all seven continents with a show at the Carlini Scientific Base in Antarctica and the first heavy metal band to headline the iconic Glastonbury festival. Boasting the biggest-selling metal record of all time on their resume, Metallica are never afraid to try new things whether it be some questionable changes to their musical style, a bizarre concept album in collaboration with Lou Reed or an IMAX 3D concert movie with a surrealist storyline. With increasingly lengthy gaps between studio albums (just two since 1997) and the youngest member of the band 49 years of age, it stands to reason that as they get older Metallica will seek new ways in which to explore their creativity, and what better way to do it than by composing a motion picture soundtrack? Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and Nine Inch Nails' Academy Award-winning frontman Trent Reznor are so far the most prominent rock musicians to branch out into composing movie soundtracks, while Jack White dropped out of scoring The Lone Ranger and Mastadon's contributions to Jonah Hex were overshadowed by how awful the movie was. Given their status, legacy and penchant for instrumentals, a movie scored by Metallica has the potential to be something completely unique, provided they lend their undoubted talents to the right project.

I was once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. I stand by what I said, it's crap.
