Spielberg's on a horse

We're not much for sentimentality here in The Basement, but there's moments in this trailer for Steven Spielberg's War Horse that give me chills. It might be John Williams's score or the beautiful images, but that old Spielberg magic is in every frame.

This is a boy-and-his-horse story set against the backdrop of the First World War. And although it's not the kind of thing we'd ever review on our show, the beauty of this trailer deserves to be shared. That and I have a feeling the wife and I will be seeing this one, as she loves horses and all.

War Horse is due out this Christmas.


  1. Wow... That is simply a gorgeous trailer. Oh, if only Lucas had left everything up to Spielberg in the last Indiana Jones movie...
