A story about the bond between a horse and its owner during WWI on paper sounds silly, I'll admit. But War Horse has drawn nothing but praise since it premiered on stage back in 2007.
Judging by the teaser-trailer, the Steven Spielberg-directed, feature-length version appears to be in capable hands as well. For as much shit as he gets for being too manipulative with the audiences' emotions, there remain few others who do it better than the Beard.
I was already prepared to see War Horse based strictly on it being a Steven Speilberg film. But I didn't expect to be taken back by this teaser.
