Watch: New 'War Horse' TV Spot Features its Stars Praising the Story
"He's a symbol of hope, and unfailing courage." DreamWorks has debuted a brand new two-minute TV spot for Steven Spielberg's War Horse that is a change from the usual TV spots we see all year. This one features many of its actors talking about the story, what it means, and so on. Jeremy Irvine stars as Albert and talks about his horse Joey, along with Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Thewlis and Emily Watson. They're trying to show how much of a family film this is, which is certainly the case, as I've seen it and it's wonderful. This is a stellar TV spot and hopefully will convince more of you to go see it.
Spielberg's War Horse, based on Michael Morpurgo's novel which also became a stage play, was adapted by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) and Richard Curtis (Pirate Radio). This follows a young man named Albert (played by newcomer Jeremy Irvine) and his horse, Joey, and how their bond is broken when Joey is sold to the cavalry and sent to the trenches during World War I. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert still heads to France to save his friend. The cast also includes Tom Hiddleston, Emily Watson, David Thewlis and Niels Arestrup. Disney/Touchstone will release War Horse in theaters starting on Christmas, December 25th, this year.
