 Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has announced that it will give $1 million from disc sales of Clint Eastwood’s film “Hereafter” to the Red Cross for its relief efforts in Japan.

“The devastation and loss Japan is facing is almost incomprehensible,” Eastwood said in a statement. “I’m glad to join Warner Bros. in this effort to help the Japanese people.”

“Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan,” added Kevin Tsujihara, president of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. “We are committed to supporting relief and rebuilding efforts during this difficult time.”

“Hereafter,” which stars Matt Damon as a man who can communicate with the dead, was pulled from Japanese theaters after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami because of the opening scenes, which realistically depict the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

The film was released on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD on March 15.
