Poster revealed for Spielberg’s War Horse

SAY what you want about Mr Steven Spielberg, he certainly knows how to throw his hat into the ring ahead of awards season.

Despite not being seen by many people, War Horse is already being tipped for Oscar glory.

The story tells of Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and his horse, Joey. The duo have a special bond that is broken when Joey is sold to the cavalry and sent to the trenches of World War One.

Despite his age, the young man makes the treacherous journey to France in a bid to save his friend.

With a top-drawer UK cast including Peter Mullan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Marsan and Emily Watson, War Horse is a dead-cert to get the waterworks going.

With the hype-machine getting underway, the official poster for the film has been revealed, below.

War Horse is in UK cinemas on January 13, 2012.
