New Stills From War Horse
Based on the children’s novel of the same name, War Horse tells the tale of… well, obviously a horse. And a war, let’s not forget the war. There’s nothing like a succinct title, is there? However, the story at the heart of it all is one of friendship, looking at the unbreakable bond between a young man (Jeremy Irvine) and that same horse.
Steven Spielberg is directing, making this the first ever of his films to be digitally edited post-production. The cast is crammed with stars, including Emily Watson, Benedict Cumberbatch and David Thewlis to name but a handful. Quite honestly, it looks like this is set to be one of the must-see movies of 2012… stellar effects, fab acting and a horse to go all gooey-eyed over. How could we not love this?
There’s a huge sense of scale to this project, as you can see from the photos below. We know Spielberg can rock a good war movie (see Saving Private Ryan for more details) and that he knows how to make a story completely animal-based a winner (erm, Jaws anybody?). However, with months to go until we see the finished project, we’ll just have to enjoy the photos for now…
