Steven Spielberg debuts the first trailer for War Horse
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I guess somewhere along the way I forgot that Steven Spielberg was filming WAR HORSE. All of the attention on Senor Spielbergo has been on his THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, but he apparently has been hard at work on his next live action film, WAR HORSE. It has been over a year since we heard anything about it and then today, we’re hit with a trailer. The film is about a beautiful horse named Joey that is thrust into the middle of WWI and inspires an entire army after displaying courage and bravery. But through it all, the horse longs to be reunited with the son of the farmer that raised him. The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Emily Watson and Jeremy Irvine.
And yes, the trailer is as “epic” as the description would have you believe. In fact, I might go a little further and say that Spielberg might have gone a little overboard with some of the shots, making this look like a TV movie at times rather than a Spielberg epic. But we’ll have to wait and see when the final product hits theaters on December 28th.
