In an unfortunate twist of poor timing, Matt Damon’s “Hereafter” film – which features a dramatic scene recreating the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami – is currently playing in Japanese theaters.

In light of last week’s destructive earthquake and powerful tsunami, Warner Bros. has wisely decided to pull the film. The AP quotes Warner Entertainment Japan official Satoru Otani saying that showing the film at this point was “not appropriate.”

The film, which received an Academy Award nomination for best visual effects, was released in the U.S. last October. It currently holds a 48% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
