Clint Eastwood's tsunami movie, "Hereafter" will not be showing in Japan following the recent disasters, according to a film distributor.

An official with Warner Entertainment Japan Inc. said theaters will no longer show the movie, saying Monday that the terrifying tsunami scenes in the film were "not appropriate" at this time.

"Hereafter" opened in Japan in February at around 180 theaters. Warner Entertainment initially planned to show the movie until late March.
