New War Horse Trailer Online

A fresh look at Spielberg's World War I

You wait ages for a Steven Spielberg film, and then two come along practically at once. As we await the debut of The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn, here's another look at Spielberg's other upcoming treat, War Horse. Go ahead and try to stop yourself shouting "Run, horsey, run!" at the screen as this plays.

Adapted from the Michael Morpurgo book, itself also a hit stage play for the National Theatre, this tells the story of Joey, a horse bought for use in World War I combat, and his owner Alfred (Jeremy Irvine), who goes to considerable lengths to reclaim his equine friend.

The film also stars Peter Mullan, Emily Watson, Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Thewlis, Toby Kebbell, Eddie Marsan, David Kross and Niels Arestrup.

War Horse is out in the UK on January 13, 2012, and in the US on Christmas Day. Well, it beats a football match in No Man's Land as Yuletide celebrations go...
