New War Horse Poster Online
Steven Spielberg's World War I epic

27 September 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Steven Spielberg's World War I story War Horse is creeping steadily closer to release, and here's a new poster to further whet your appetite for this equine epic. Appropriately enough, the poster shows star Jeremy Irvine in uniform as Albert, the main human character, and his horse Joey.

The story sees young Albert bonding with the aforementioned Joey and being devastated when Albert's father, Ted (Peter Mullan), sells him to the Army early in World War I. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert sets off in search of his four-legged pal, who is having his own adventure with troops on both sides of the battle lines.

The film also stars Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Toby Kebbell, David Kross and Eddie Marsan, with a screenplay by Lee Hall and Richard Curtis (who knows a few things about World War I from Blackadder Goes Forth - and yes, we mean that as a compliment). It will hit UK cinemas on January 13, 2012. The full trailer is going to hit screens next week, so keep your eyes peeled for that very soon.
