Directed by Steven Spielberg, who’s enjoying something of a renaissance this year with directing credits on “War Horse” and “The Adventures of Tintin” and producing credits on a handful of other projects, “War Horse” tore up the stage wherever it played, and many are looking to the film for Oscar potential.
Here’s the breakdown, “Albert and his horse, Joey, and how their bond is broken when Joey is sold to the cavalry and sent to the trenches of World War One. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert heads to France to save his friend.” We’re getting misty-eyed already.
Of course, we could have told you it’s a horse movie, and that’s why the long face, but we didn’t.
Here’s the first trailer for the film, in HD and all that jazz. Let us know what you think.
