Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ Adaptation Gets a Trailer

Things seem to be coming up Spielberg lately, as the iconic director/producer has been on a roll with new projects and productions. He recently turned heads everywhere when he teamed up with modern geek god J.J. Abrams for Super 8, then the first trailer for his Tin Tin film hits the web, and then Transformers 3 arrives.

Now his newest adaptation, War Horse, gets a hot new trailer.

Here’s the full scoop for the film from THR:

The World War I-set movie centers on a horse named Joey and his friendship with a farmer’s son named Albert (Jeremy Irvine). When the two are forcefully parted, the movie follows the horse’s journey through war as he changes and inspires the lives of everyone he meets.

Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Patrick Kennedy, Emily Watson, Toby Kebbell, David Thewlis, Eddie Marsa and Peter Mullan also star.

The movie is based on a children’s fiction novel by Michael Morpurgo, first published in 1982, and the 2007 stage adaptation of the same name.

The film is set to arrive in theaters on December 28th, just in time to hit what is now called the Avatar rush. But you can check out the very first trailer after the jump.
