Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s new film, Hereafter. The script from Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon) tells the story of three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. The trailer at first made me think that the movie was going to be about a reluctant psychic (played by Matt Damon) living in a small town, but then crazy stuff started to happen halfway through involving drowning, a tidal wave, and explosions. Now, I don’t really know what exactly Hereafter is going to be about, but it certainly looks interesting and intense.
Hit the jump for the trailer along with a plot synopsis.
The official synopsis:
Hereafter tells the story of three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. Matt Damon stars as George, a blue–collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie (Cécile de France), a French journalist, has a near–death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus (Frankie/George McLaren), a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might—or must—exist in the hereafter.
Hereafter opens on October 22nd. Click to Apple for HD.
