Steven Spielberg’s War Horse Trailer

It’s been a long time in the works but here’s the first official trailer to Steven Spielberg’s Horse ’em up, War Horse.

It looks like a sweeping epic, with Joey the horse galloping through the First World War in a bid to find his friend Albert, inspiring everyone that he meets along the way.

It’s sort of the The Littlest Hobo but with a horse with and 300 times more schmaltz.

Actually, given that the horse seems to be doing everything in the trailer, it put me more in mind of Harvey the dog in the advert for Thinkbox. I half expected him to start doing the ironing.

It’ll be out next January.
