Warner Bros. Pulls Clint Eastwood’s Tsunami Movie 'Hereafter' From Japan
NEW YORK – Clint Eastwood's tsunami movie Hereafter is ending its theatrical run in Japan earlier than expected following the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country at the end of last week, the Associated Press reported.
It quoted Warner Entertainment Japan official Satoru Otani as saying that theaters will no longer show the film, because tsunami scenes in the movie were "not appropriate" at this time.
Hereafter opened in Japan in late February at around 180 theaters, according to the AP. Warner Entertainment originally planned to show the movie in theaters until late March.
