Clint Eastwood's Hereafter DVD/Blu-Ray Sales To Benefit Japan

hereafter dvd sales to benefit japan

Very nice gesture by Warner Bros!

Earlier this week, we learned that Warner Entertainment Japan Inc. was pulling Clint Eastwood's film Hereafter from theaters in Japan, because they felt the "tsunami scenes" were "not appropriate" at this time.

Now, we've learned that Warner Bros will use the DVD/blu-ray release of the Matt Damon-starring film to raise funds for Japan relief efforts.

No word yet on which specific organizations will receive the money from Warner Bros, but it looks like a donation to the Japanese Red Cross of $1 million or so is likely to happen.

Here's what Clint Eastwood had to say about Warner Bros' plans for the Hereafter DVD/blu-ray release:

"The devastation and loss Japan is facing is almost incomprehensible. I’m glad to join Warner Bros. in this effort to help the Japanese people.”

And here's what president of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group Kevin Tsujihara had to say on the subject:

“Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan. We are committed to supporting relief and rebuilding efforts during this difficult time.”

We absolutely approve of this! Thanks Warner Bros!

Will U pick up a copy of Hereafter to support Japan?

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

Filed under: Matt DamonFilm Flickers

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?
