Hereafter, The Rite & Yogi Bear (UK) in June
Below are some Warner UK new release titles for June. In all cases extras are TBC and based on what has passed through the BBFC, retailer info and by comparing to the US release info we already have…
Hereafter - 13th June 2011
George (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American with a special connection to the afterlife dating from his childhood. French journalist Marie (Cécile de France) has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when London schoolboy Marcus (Frankie and George McLaren) loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each seeking the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might – or must – exist in the hereafter. Clint Eastwood directs this haunting original tale from a screenplay by Peter Morgan. Jay Mohr, Bryce Dallas Howard, Marthe Keller and Derek Jacobi also star.
The DVD release is – as the artwork shows – apparently a Double Play DVD + Blu-ray package (in a DVD sized case we’re guessing). This is quite unusual if accurate.
The Blu-ray release is a standard (for Warner) Triple-Play set. Extras include:
- Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon lead a journey into Hereafter to explore the world of skeptics, psychics and mediums, and the possibility of life after death. Featuring 9 Focus Points:
- Tsunami! Recreating a Disaster
- Is There Life After Death?
- Clint on Casting
- Delving into the Hereafter
- Twin Bonding
- French Speaking French
- Why The White Light?
- Hereafter's Locations - "Casting" the Silent Characters

The Rite - 20th June 2011
Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller follows a seminary student (Colin O’Donoghue) sent to study exorcism at the Vatican in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith. Only when sent to apprentice with legendary Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who has performed thousands of exorcisms, does his armour of scepticism begin to fall. Drawn into a troubling case that transcends even Father Lucas’s skill, the young seminarian glimpses a phenomenon science can’t explain or control – and an evil so violent and terrifying that it forces him to question everything he believes.
DVD extras TBC.
