New War Horse Trailer No Less Majestic Than the First
10.04.11 by Ryan
This Holiday season, audiences will be able to enjoy not one, but two movies from director Steven Spielberg — the CGI-animated The Adventures of Tintin and period drama War Horse. While both movies were recently rescheduled, they're still opening within days of each other, with War Horse moving to Christmas Day instead of a few days after (TinTin opens first on December 21st).
Set during World War I, War Horse was based on the play adaptation of the children's novel by Michael Morpurgo and follows a horse's journey through England and Europe after it is separated from its original owner (Jeremy Irvine). A previous trailer was released in June, and while the latest trailer offers new footage, they both suggest the same thing: Oscar noms.
War Horse was adapted by screenwriters Richard Curtis (Pirate Radio) and Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) and co-stars Emily Watson, Tom Hiddleston, and David Thewlis.
