Steven Spielberg's War Horse is coming to Blu-ray in April
WAR HORSE is the only Oscar nominated film this year that I didn’t see and judging by how much I tear up during the trailer, I just don’t think I’d be able to forgive Steven Spielberg if he kills that horse at the end. But if you skipped out on seeing WAR HORSE over the Christmas holiday, you can catch it on a 4 disc Blu-ray on April 3rd. It will also be available on a 2 disc Blu-ray set a single disc DVD, but only the 4 disc set will have all of the special features. The Steven Spielberg directed film follows the story of a horse and the different lives it impacted during World War I. The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Emily Watson and Jeremy Irvine.
Special features on the set include A Filmmaking Journey – Academy Award®-winning Director/Producer Steven Spielberg provides a unique and unprecedented look into the making and filming of “War Horse.” Editing & Scoring – Multi-Oscar® winners Michael Kahn (film editor) and John Williams (composer) discuss specific aspects of editing the film and composing music for “War Horse,” as well as the secret to their long and successful collaborations with Steven Spielberg. The Sounds of “War Horse” – Seven-time Academy Award®-winning sound designer Gary Rydstrom takes us through the sophisticated sound design he created for “War Horse. Through The Producer’s Lens – Producer Kathleen Kennedy shares the photos she took during filming and recounts how she discovered the source material, as well as her appreciation of Steven Spielberg’s vision, the team that sounds him, and why “War Horse” appealed to her. “War Horse”: The Look – Director/Producer Steven Spielberg introduces us to his creative team of production designer Rick Carter, costume designer Joanna Johnston and director of photography Janusz Kaminski, who discuss what it took to design the look for the film. An Extra’s Point of View – Film extra Martin Dew explains how and why he was brought in––along with a hundred other men––to be featured alternately as both German and British soldiers.
