Eastwood wants your tears, it’s how he stays young. In case you thought Academy Award winning director Clint Eastwood was thinking about retiring, he’s proving that he’s not only still here, but he’s tackling yet another epic adventure and going for yet another Oscar. Written by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) and starring his favorite leading man Matt Damon, Warner Brothers has just released Eastwood’s trailer for his latest film Hereafter.

Aside from the actual story (which seems somewhat supernaturally basic) there are some very emotional images in this trailer that are undoubtedly going to pull at your heartstrings. We’ll get to the details after the jump…

Lets hope this film has the quality to back up the tears it’s going to create. I hate crying for nothing!


“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.

The film is set for release on October 22, 2010.
