London: A division of Warner Brothers has pulled Clint Eastwood`s ‘Hereafter’ from theatres in Japan following last week`s devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami.

"In deference to the tragic unfolding events in Japan, we have pulled `Hereafter` from the theatres and will postpone the Japanese release of ``The Rite`` (which was scheduled to open this coming weekend) to a later date," a daily quoted Warner Bros as saying in a statement.

‘Hereafter,’ directed by Clint Eastwood starring Matt Damon, follows three people who are questioning death and what may or may not come after.
