Clint Eastwood's Hereafter Pulled From Japanese Theaters Due To Tsunami Content

hereafter pulled from theaters in japan

It doesn't come as a complete shock to us that Japan wouldn't be enthusiastic about this movie after their recent tragedy.

Warner Entertainment Japan Inc. has announced that theaters will no longer show Clint Eastwood's film Hereafter in Japan, because they feel the "tsunami scenes" are "not appropriate" at this time.

The Matt Damon-starring film opened in Japan in late February.

Do U think Hereafter should be taken out of theaters? Or should they keep playing it anyway?

    Not a big deal. I think people in Japan have better things to do right now than go to the movies.

    Agree with Amelie. Obviously when they made this movie they had no idea an actual disaster was going to occur in Japan. I'm sure the current movie sales in Japan right now are $0 so shouldn't be an issue. In any case pray for the people of Japan and help them get through this. If you make donations do it directly to legit organizations like the Red Cross

    Of course it should have been pulled, besides they have a bigger issues right now then going to the movies.

    Re: AmeliePoulain – yeah i dont think it matters if they pulled it out or not, if it was me i wouldnt see ANY movie at this time

    umm they should just pull that movie in general i saw it in taiwan and it was AWWEEFULLL a japanese guy actually got out his phone and started talking during the movie and others fell asleep.
    but the beginning is pretty hardcore, i'd say pull it and put some happy movies in.

    I really don't think it matters one way or another…. i HIGHLY doubt people in Japan are rushing out to the movies right now anyways.. pretty sure most people are focused on rebuilding their lives. Warm Wishes and love goes out to them!

    You seriously did NOT just ask that question, right? Then again, I would expect nothing different from you. Moron.

    If i was in japan i'd be more concern about safety of my family and friends who are in the tsunami/earth quake region that were more affected. Who would want to watch a movie at this time? JUST SAYING…

    People are so god damn sensitive.



  10. 10

    This is stupid, there is nothing insensitive about it, its a movie, a story about something.
    And I agree, I hate it when people talk in the cinema. And if they talk on the phone, that is beyond rude, those people should be beat up until they lose all their teeth and then proceed to break both their hands so they cannot anwser the phone anymore for a year or so. If they still do it, cut them off.

    Re: cmebrkmedwn – maybe after your country was demolished, work gone, and family and friends are missing or deceased you would be sensitive as well

    Don't forget that the Tsunami didn't hit the whole country and the people in the uneffected area need to reduce stress as well. Going to the movie / dining out are some of the option which people can do. No one is going to sit in front of the TV and cry for 24 hours !

    Oh please. The movie was made before the disaster so it's not like they were trying to exploit a tragedy.

    People watch movies for escapism and to get their mind of their troubles, so watching a movie about a tsunami might not enable the Japanese people to do that, however, it could also show them that it is possible to rebuild after a disaster.

    Oh, didn't see this coming but last time they even pulled songs out of sale with the word 'wave' in the title.
