    Hereafter home video sales to benefit Japan relief efforts

    The Matt Damon-starring movie “Hereafter” was pulled from theaters in Japan earlier this week, and Warner Bros. is using the film’s Tuesday release on DVD and Blu-ray as a way to raise money for relief efforts.

    According to the L.A. Times, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is donating an unspecified percentage of DVD and Blu-ray sales to the Japanese Red Cross Society following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the nation last Friday. Those familiar with the matter tell the Times that the donation will be in the ballpark of $1 million.

    The Clint Eastwood-directed film focuses on grief and the afterlife, but it does contain a scene depicting a tsunami wreaking havoc on a coastal town. It’s been playing in Japan since February. A Warner Bros. rep explained to CNN, “In deference to the tragic unfolding events in Japan, we have pulled ‘Hereafter’ from the theaters.”

    The Warner Bros. rep added that the opening of Anthony Hopkins’ horror thriller “The Rite,” which was originally scheduled to bow this weekend in Japan, has been postponed.

    Matt Damon, a humble soul

    Hollywood heavy-hitter Matt Damon has his head on straight, as CARMEL MELOUNEY discovers

    MATT Damon is renowned as the consummate Hollywood professional, so it feels a little disconcerting to walk into a hotel room and be ignored by the man crowned Sexiest Man Alive in 2007.

    It’s especially awkward because only two people are in the room.

    In New York to discuss his new film, Hereafter, Damon is anxiously awaiting news from his wife Luciana, who is about to give birth to her fourth baby and the couple’s third child together.

    The Oscar-winning actor met his Argentine wife while she was bartending in Miami in 2003.

    Damon’s dedication to his family is evident as he frantically texts on a Blackberry after taking a seat, and apologises for his lack of attention.

    “OK, I’m a terrible multi-tasker,” he says as he drops his Blackberry on the floor. While other actors may have appeared rude as they juggled a Blackberry and a waiting journalist, Damon is unfailingly polite about it and clearly uncomfortable with having to do so.

    Queen writer Peter Morgan contemplates the afterlife

    The writer of Frost/Nixon, The Queen and The Last King of Scotland reveals how he came to work with Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon on supernatural drama Hereafter.

    On the day I am due to interview the British screenwriter Peter Morgan, the eyes of the world are turned to Zurich to find out which countries will be selected by Fifa to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

    As we all now know, England’s bid to host the former tournament was doomed to failure – a situation one might imagine would appeal to this award-winning author.

    Morgan, after all, is a man who – in such films as The Deal, The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Last King of Scotland – has shown an affinity for turning the likes of Tony Blair, David Frost, Richard Nixon and Idi Amin into compelling protagonists.

    He is no stranger to the beautiful game either, having brought football manager Brian Clough back to life in 2009 film The Damned United.
