Wonderful First Full Poster for Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse' Revealed
Separated by War. Tested by Battle. Bound by Friendship. Time to take a look at the first wonderful poster for this year's potential Best Picture winner. Our friends at Entertainment Weekly have debuted the first full theatrical poster for Steven Spielberg's War Horse, starring Jeremy Irvine and his horse Joey. This design is reminiscent of the book's cover that this is based on, but with Irvine and a much more colorful and epic Spielberg feel to it. While we're already well into the awards season, this is one of my most anticipated left this year, can't wait to see it! This looks like the start of their marketing leading to its Christmas release.
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 currently has War Horse scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 28th this year.
