I don't know why, but I've always had kind of a thing for horse movies (I blame Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken). Preying on my weakness is Steven Spielberg, who has adapted the young adult book War Horse. The story follows the friendship between a boy, Albert, and his horse, Joey, set in Europe just before World War I. When Albert and Joey are separated during the war, the horse's odyssey become much more interesting than his human counterpart, and we follow Joey on his adventure and the people he meets along the way.
Though there are a few famous faces here, like Emily Watson, David Thewlis, and Tom Hiddleston, this first teaser is all about newcomer Jeremy Irvine as Albert and his horsey companion. Paired with the WWI backdrop and soaring soundtrack, this movie has an undeniably epic feel. Watch it when you read more.
