We had our first real glimpse of Steven Spielberg's War Horseback in June
, and now the epic film adaptation just released its full-length trailer for your viewing pleasure.
Based on Michael Morpurgo's children's book by the same name, War Horse tells the story of Albert, a young farm boy (Jeremy Irvine), who befriends and tames a horse (naming it Joey) only to have their bond shattered as the horse is sold into cavalry.
Albert follows Joey on an extraordinary journey through war-torn fields, trenches and battlefields in a quest to reunite and save his friend.
The cast includes David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, Tom Hiddleston, Peter Mullan and David Kross.
War Horse marks Spielberg's return to the director's chair since 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
