Metallica’s ‘One’ Soundtracks Brutal New ‘Punisher’ Trailer

By Scott T. Sterling

A brutal new trailer for the upcoming Netflix/Marvel collaboration, The Punisher, effectively uses Metallica’s 1988 classic, “One.”

The trailer opens with lead character Frank Castle (actor¬†Jon Bernthal) playing acoustic guitar to the opening strains of “One” and reminiscing about his wife when she is brutally murdered as he watches on helplessly during a flashback sequence.

As expected, all hell breaks loose from there, with assault rifle fire cued up to Lars Ulrich’s rapid-fire double-bass drum patterns in the Metallica track, which plays throughout the trailer.

Cars crash, a lot of people get shot, Frank Castle is seen with blood splattered across his face and a lot of stuff gets blown up. The trailer ends on the tagline, “The truth must be taken.”

The Netflix show, a spin-off from Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil, is set for a 2017 release, although no exact date has been revealed.
