Stephen Speilberg’s epic horse movie, War Horse, gets a fuller trailer that explains the story a bit more than the teaser trailer that was released a few months ago.
The story is based both on a children’s novel and the 2007 stage adaptation of the same name. It’s set during World War I in England. Albert is a young man who tames and trains a horse named Joey. Unfortunately, the British government buys Joey and drags the horse off to France for the war. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert travels to France to get his horse back.
Also, it has Benedict Cumberbatch. Fans of BBC’s Sherlock Holmes should be excited for that.
War Horse is set to release nationwide on December 28th, 2011.
