It seems that Clint Eastwood's new film will be going up against some horror heavyweights this October. eRc Box Office is reporting that Warner Bros. has set an October 22 release date for Eastwood's latest film Hereafter.

The film, which stars Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard, will be stepping in the middle of an already-heated horror feud, with Saw VII 3D and Paranormal Activity 2 already slated for release on the same date. You can find the synopsis for the film below and we'll be sure to keep you posted on any further news regarding Hereafter as soon as we have more information.

Hereafter tells the story of three people who are touched by death in different ways. George (Matt Damon) is 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, 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 was released October 22nd, 2010 and stars C├ęcile De France, Thierry Neuvic, Cyndi Mayo Davis, Lisa Griffiths, Jessica Griffiths, Ferguson Reid, Derek Sakakura, Jay Mohr. The film is directed by Clint Eastwood.

    I have not seem it but from what I hear and read it reminds me of a book I read called "The Spirit Serens" very similar, it has all the things some critic's would have wanted to see in a film dealing with the afterlife. It does not fall under the trapping of "Hereafter" and "What dreams my come" to which is set to film next year around this time.

    The last thing I will say about this topic is this. Why is Warner Brothers even releasing this the same day as Saw 7 3 and PA2? They could release it the week after and it would make far more money. Horror movies, especially movies like Saw and PA often have a pretty big drop in their second week.

    your obviously not understanding or twisting things around i said. The movies that he directs make as money much as the movies he is in. Meaning even if he wasn't in the film it still makes alot of money. Meaning his quality both in front of and behind the camera is a value.

    While you two may want to and a lot of others want to see a Eastwood movie that he directs but not stars in, you two are some of the few. The box office numbers clearly show that movies that Eastwood directs but does not star in do bad at the box office especially domestically. While this new Eastwood movie may make about 100 to 150 million dollars worldwide it will be lucky to break 50 million domestically. While Saw 7 3D will pass 50 million in its first two weeks in theaters. And quite easily I might add. Now saying the Eastwood movie will be better than Saw 7 3D is like saying the sky is blue. Everyone knows it. But when talking about box office numbers that does not matter.

    Saw 7 3D will crush this new Eastwood movie at the box office and anyone who denies it is clearly in denial.

    i have to agree Letters From Iwo Jima was a brilliant piece of work, But if you ask the people what they prefer to see a Saw film or a Clint Eastwood film i think majority would choose Clint Eastwood and just like @Slysnide said he doesn't even have to be in the film for it to be good.

    @TheDude1: Scream was a trilogy. Saw is a hexology. It was beaten out big time. And I agree about some of the box office receipts, but as I said, it was a sly remark as most prefer Eastwood films over the sixth sequel in a horror genre that contiues to roll down hill per installment. Plus, Clint doesn't need to be in the film. Hell he's made better films than he's starred in. "Letters From Iwo Jima" is a perfect example of that.

    @remy72883 It would be a great idea to compare box office grosses of these two films but as for what critics sat and awards that would be useless. When is the last time a horror movie like Saw won an award? And critics are often wrong. Just look at Avatar. The critics loved it but the fans hated it. The critics are often wrong.

    It doesn't matter if Saw is a vile series than praises torture. The facts clearly show no other movie franchise has ever done what Saw has done. That means it is a heavyweight.

    I AM FRATSON i didnt even look up the movies he acted in i just went with some of the films he directed so combine those and you got around 3.5 billion which just proves my point even more Clint Eastwood is the man. I personally own the first Saw movie and thought it was good but after watching the 2nd one i refused to buy or see anymore cause it just went downhill from their as far as im concerned.

    TheDude1 i am not agreeing with you in any way shape nor form that the Saw series is a heavyweight. I mean if your talking about sh*t filling a diaper than yeah its pretty heavy, I respect the fact you enjoy these films and that they fall into your category of good taste in horror.

    I purpose this - how about when these films come out we compare box office numbers and what the critics say and which one gets the awards and see who comes out on top.

    Even people who hated Saw 4 & 5(i disliked Saw 5) admit that Saw 6 was a big improvement and is a big step in the right direction. While I completely agree that Clint is a God he will lose to Saw 7 3D easily. First off Clint is not acting in this film he is just producing and directing it. Going back to Flags of Our Fathers in 2006 movies that he has not starred in have done poorly to somewhat good at the box office. And of those movies none of them have made more than 38 million domestically. So with those facts how can anyone say this movie can upset Saw 7 3D?

    Im with Remy on this 100% - anything Eastwood does is gold. Please argue that someone. @dude - so minus one film each has grossed 114 million. 7 films - approx 700 mill total. Saw started out solid and has gone down hill with each and every one. it is the same damn thing, over played. And to correct you Remy, the actual gross Clint has made (only including movies he acted in) is $2,403,072,191. Nuff said?? Clint is gold, Gran Torino alone made as much as basically 3 saw movies. Clint Eastwood is a god. Plain and simple. If The Man with No Name, Pale Rider, Dirty Harrys were today with the ticket value, this wouldnt even be a debate. Even at that, this shouldnt be. Like Matt Damon said during his lifetime achievement award - "I wont f*ck with Clint Eastwood"

    @remy72883 At least your not denying the fact that the Saw franchise is a powerhouse. I can also respect your opinion about the franchise, even though I disagree with it. As for saying the only reason they are a success is because of their low budgets is just stupid. While it does help you are missing the big fact that every Saw movie except for number 6 has made over 114 million dollars worldwide!!!! That is huge! Even if it had a 20 million dollar budget that would still be a big success.

    I don't care if you hate Saw but come on people you have to admit that the Saw franchise is without doubt a powerhouse and has done what other horror franchises can only dream of.

    ok lets save the argument here and lay down some facts, The saw franchise pretty much sucks, it is one step higher than a snuff film. The story is always dumb and the only reason why people watch these movies is because of the look of gore like they did back in the 80's and early 90's that's it. Clever way to kill people just think of it as a little bit more than what you get by watching a Final destination movie with some guy giving you a cheesy story why in his opinion you have to value your life because of his demented way of self righteousness. And come on 6 films in 6 years the company is obviously rushing and milky this for all they can. Just the films Clint Eastwood has directed have made over 1,012,064,091 billions dollars. And that doesn't even count the 6 others films we don't have box office number for. I not looking to pick a fight but trying to say a SAW movie is better than something Clint Eastwood directs is just mind blowing. With his films you get a great sense of drama some action and alot good old fashion humor. Not some guy looking to enlighten people with means of torture I say the true torture is actually making people watch the Saw series against their will.

    @slysnide Over 700 million for a horror franchise is a heavyweight. It it the second biggest horror franchise only behind Scream(money wise). Also remember that they have made over 700 million dollars in 6 film in 6 years. That is unprecedented and has never happened and probably never will. While I like Clint Eastwood's work the fact that Saw has owned October for the last 4 of 6 years, has made big money in the last 6 years, and the fact that it is in 3D I don't see any movie touching Saw 7 3D on October 22nd. The facts are the facts Slysnide and they show no horror franchise has ever nor probably will ever accomplished what Saw has.

    @TheDude1: 700mil over 6 films is not a heavyweight, especially when you factor in the amount oldies horror flicks would rake in, plus their franchises taking them past high marks. Their big success is from their low budgets. Yet the comment was more of a sly remark for how crummy the series has become over the past 3 installements. It doesn't stand a chance against anything Clint Eastwood throws at it.

    @slysnide PA is not a horror heavy yet but the SAW franchise sure is. How can you even deny that? The Saw franchise has made over 700 million dollars worldwide(not adjusted for inflation). And Saw 7 will be in 3D. 3D horror movies are huge right now and SAW 7 will probably make about 200 million dollars worldwide. This is the the worse possible idea Warner Bros. could have made. While the movie may not bomb it sure as hell won't make as much as it could being released at another time.
