Very Ethereal Official Poster Arrives for Eastwood's Hereafter
Warner Bros has debuted the official poster (found via Awards Daily) for Clint Eastwood's Hereafter, the Sixth Sense-like supernatural drama starring Matt Damon, Bryce Dallas Howard, Cécile De France, Richard Kind and many others. The film actually premiering at the Toronto Film Festival a few weeks ago and didn't receive any good reviews, at all. Our friend Jordan Raup of The Film Stage gave it only 5/10 saying it was "a laughably cliche exercise that was uncomfortable to behold." Over on SlashFilm, Peter gave it 6.5/10 say it has "bad storytelling" and "logically-laughable coincidences." That doesn't sound too good, but check it out.
A supernatural thriller centered on three people -- a blue-collar American, a French journalist (de France) and a London school boy (both Frankie & George McLaren) -- who are touched by death in different ways.
Hereafter is directed by legendary Oscar winning actor/filmmaker Clint Eastwood, of great like The Rookie, Unforgiven, Space Cowboys, Blood Work, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, Changeling, Gran Torino and Invictus most recently. The screenplay was written by Oscar nominated British screenwriter Peter Morgan, of The Last King of Scotland, The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Damned United. Warner Bros is bringing Hereafter to theaters on October 22nd this fall. Thoughts?

Matt Damon's eye looks creepy. Also, good job airbrushing 20 years off of him.

Actually, there were lots of positive reviews for the film. Roger Ebert, Screen International, Variety and the Hollywood Reporter.

you're right, jane - i've seen quite a few good reviews of this movie. (although - i don't put much weight on reviews.......i make my own decisions on movies being good and bad) BTW, alex - no offense intended at your friend jordan........but he seeming doesn't like anything. and what positive comments he does give out for a film- it seems he does so begrudgingly. as far as the poster - i like the ethereal look to it.

The trailer looked terrible. 2012 disaster effects with New Age spiritualism.

I saw this at TIFF and honestly, it was garbage. The way the three stories were brought together was ridiculously funny (in a very bad way). I read Ebert's review and I completely disagree with literally everything about his critique. Out of the 29 movies I saw at TIFF, it was the second worst (just short of Passion Play with Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke). Not even worth renting as far as I'm concerned.

At least there's no orange on the poster...

Hereafter sounds like "Sixth Sense" meets The Psychic Twins. Eastwood has "borrowed" an awful lot of concepts from the real-life story of the Jamison Twins here (prophetic visions, tsunami and terrorist attacks, twins who are inseparable, struggle with a psychic gift to name a few). Not cool.
