Usually I’m the one making the featurettes but this time around DreamWorks and Disney have provided us with one. We will no doubt have our own later but its a great First Look at the upcoming Spielberg Film WAR HORSE which has recently pulled an M Rating. After watching it, it does seem more like a new trailer then featurette but evenstill, the movie looks brilliant and one I have been rather looking forward to.
DreamWorks Pictures’ “War Horse,” director Steven Spielberg’s epic adventure, is a tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets–British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter–before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land. The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse–an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. “War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war– a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.
WAR HORSE is due to hit Australian Cinemas on Boxing Day, if you want to see the official trailer head to our trailers page
