First Look At Spielberg's War Horse
Check out these new images

11 March 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: DreamWorks

The novel's been clocking up readers since it was published in 1982; the play blew audiences away when it opened at the National Theatre, and now the film of War Horse is coming from one Steven Spielberg. And today has seen the first images from the film emerge.

For those of you not keeping up to date with the activities of Empire's highest-profile editor (sorry, Mark), the story focuses on the friendship between a young boy called Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and his horse Joey. His father Ted (Peter Mullan) sells Joey to the British cavalry and he's sent off to the dying fields of World War I. Meanwhile, however, Albert can't forget his equine friend and sets off to bring him home.

These images show Jeremy Irvine as Albert, Emily Watson as his mother, Celine Bucken as Emilie and, most importantly, Joey. The film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Toby Kebbell and David Thewlis, with Richard Curtis and Lee Hall adapting the script from the book and play.

War Horse is out on January 13, 2012 here in the UK.

I'm going to say something very shocking.   Some old white men with beards did some great things.   Gasp. More

It's Lucas that's doing Red Tails and it's in the can already. The good news (finally) on Spielberg is four words long...  Lincoln.  Daniel Day Lewis. More

RE: More Saccharine Drivel
L: bnicholson50 Another reason for me to continue my boycott of spielberg films. The worlds most over-rated director does it again. I look forward to reading empires sycophantic four star review of Speilbergs next piece of mediocre saccharine drivel. sp; Well, as long as you'll be keeping an open mind then. More

RE: First Look At Spielberg's War Horse
Well bnicholson50, you're in a boycott of one then. Good luck with that. Calling Spielberg saccharine is like calling Scorsese uneven, Coppola under achieving or Kubrick non-productive. Go see Schindler's List or Munich then come back and tell us all how saccharine he is ... More
