Clint Eastwood's 'Hereafter' Film Removed From Japan

Warner Entertainment Japan official announces the 2010-released movie has been removed from Japan because several scenes are 'not appropriate' after recent disaster on the land.

Clint Eastwood's latest movie "Hereafter (2010)" has been removed from cinemas in Japan because of its "inappropriate" tsunami scenes. The "Dirty Harry" star directed Matt Damon in the recently-released drama, which tells the story of three people who are all affected by death in different ways.

One of the characters suffers a near-death experience in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and the scenes have prompted studio chiefs to pull the film from Japanese theaters in the aftermath of Friday's, March 11, devastating earthquake in the country.

The 9.0-magnitude tremor triggered a massive tsunami, which has left thousands of people dead and many more still missing. Warner Entertainment Japan official Satoru Otani has confirmed cinemas will no longer screen the film because several scenes are "not appropriate" at this time.

Movie bosses have also confirmed the Japanese release of critically-acclaimed new Chinese film "Aftershock" has been delayed.

The blockbuster is based on the story of China's Great Tangshan Earthquake in 1976 and was due to hit cinemas in Japan on March 26 but the release has now been scrapped.
