for those who've seen the movie, what do you think was in the bag? I felt like it somehow pertained to Cliff, because of the contemplative jam in the empty venue. I thought it kind of symbolized the importance of his essence to the band. Also, how the hell did Trip end up on the roof?

My friends and I came up with a few theories:

 

1) Dave Mustaine's head.

2) Cliff, who is actually a genie and will appear if you rub the bag.

3) The new album, which will be revealed in the sequel- Metallica: Under The Sometimes.

I thought it was going to be called Over The Always.

dont know but i like the Cliff answer, today is the day he passed away (sep, 27) and with the Orion playing while the bag is there it could be pertaining to Cliff or maybe not? who knows? i thought it was cool not showing it.

i dont think so, Trip's reaction to it was of shock and almost upsetting, didnt seem like it was nothing. it was "something" we just dont know what.

As mentioned above it was totally the head of Dave Mustaine.

You'd be upset if you went through hell and immolation and discovered the bag was full of air.

It was all the hair Lars has lost.

 

It was the Presidio sessions.

 

It was Bob Rock's phone number on a card asking to let him back in.

 

Jason wrote on the back of it "Fuck Bob, what about ME?!".

 

It was The Thing That Should Not Be.

 

It was just his life.

Another thought, the bag contains the entire universe and when you open the bag you see another universe with another bag that has another universe with another bag so and so forth.

I interpreted it as something to do with Cliff since they jammed Orion with the bag on stage with them.  Cliff's soul.  

 

Obviously reminded me a bit of Pulp Fiction and the briefcase.  

 

Cool movie though.  Great IMAX experience, it sounded great.  I admit that I got chills a few times.   The overall narrative was so so, I could've done without most of it.  I expected more narrative to be honest, but we got the band mostly which was cool.  That stage is incredible.  Ride the Lightning was the pinnacle IMO.

Probably. Or something even more profound... like all the life moments Cliff never got to live.

Is it true James wanted a hologram of Cliff somewhere in the movie, originally?

Actually just hell.

Immolation came later.
