Eastwood’s ‘Hereafter’ Pulled From Japanese Cinemas!

By on 14 March, 2011



Clint Eastwood‘s latest flick ‘Hereafter‘ will no longer be screened in Japan, as it features tsunami scenes which are ”inappropriate” after the recent earthquake in the country.


The movie stars Matt Damon as a psychic who can see dead people, and it features terrifying tsunami scenes which distributor Warner Bros. has labelled as “not appropriate” after the country was hit on Friday (11th March 2011) by a massive wave caused by an offshore earthquake, measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale.

A spokeman for Warner Entertainment Japan Inc., Otani Satoru, added that the company will also delay the release of big budget movie ‘Aftershock‘ (a Chinese melodrama drama based on the consequences of the 1976 Tangshan earthquake) in light of recent events.

He states:

“In view of the devastation caused by the earthquake and out of consideration for the victims and their families… we are delaying the release of ‘Aftershock’.”


Hereafter‘ was scheduled to play in 180 cinemas in until the end of this month, and the blockbuster ‘Aftershock‘ was set to be shown from 26th March 2011, with at least some of the proceeds promised for the victims of the recent New Zealand quake.


I haven’t mentioned this before, but I hope people see this as a given when I say that my thoughts are with the people affected by the recent disaster in Japan.
