Trailers Without Pity: <i>War Horse</i>

Steven Spielberg gets his epic on with this sweeping story of a boy and his horse set against the backdrop of World War I. When a poor British farmer spends all of his savings on the titular steed at an auction, his young son forms a strong bond with the horse -- which he names Joey -- that continues even after it is shipped away to the front. The horse then passes through the hands of various owners, while the boy grows up and goes to war himself.

With two-plus hours to fill, Spielberg packs his movie with almost every prestigious British character actor around, from Emily Watson and Peter Mullan to Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Marsan. But the horse is the performer that everyone will be turning up to see and Joey cuts a fine equine figure, indeed. Watch our Trailers Without Pity team critique the War Horse teaser and see the movie in theaters on Christmas Day.
