FILM TRAILER: War Horse (12A)
The World Premiere of DreamWorks Pictures’ War Horse directed by Steven Spielberg, took place in New York yesterday.
War Horse is adapted from the novel by British author Michael Morpurgo and was originally produced as a stage play in London, written by Nick Stafford, and is now enjoying a run on Broadway in New York.
The film 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.
Starring Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson and David Thewlis.
The film hits cinemas in America on December 25. It is out in UK cinemas from Friday, January 13, 2012.
