Spielberg's War Horse gets posterized

09.27.2011

Isn't it weird that this holiday season we're getting two films from Steven Spielberg? Albeit one is THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, a mo-cap project Spielberg has been working on for some time, but in December we also get WAR HORSE, a film I'll admit to forgetting is on the horizon.

WAR HORSE has been keeping it low-key up until this point but today we have the first look at the poster. And it's very Spielbergian. Shot during the "magic hour" (or at least Photoshopped during the "magic hour"...) with a very Hollywood style tagline: "Separated by war. Tested by battle. Bound by friendship."

The poster is also reminiscent of the cover of the best-selling book the film is based on, perhaps to remind people of the link between the two properties.

WAR HORSE hits theaters this Christmas but which Spielberg film are you most looking forward to?

Poster looks a bit Disney-ish for my liking but the trailer definitely makes up for any of that. Very excited for this movie.

Spielberg comes back to theaters hardcore this season. Two films. Only Spielberg could get away with this while so many other films sit waiting for release. But I am looking forward to both. Never read the War Horse book or saw the play, but I know of them and their success, and if anyone can do it justice, it's Spielberg. Tin Tin also looks good, I think that will be quite enjoyable as well.

Now *that* is a sexy head of hair.
And yes, I'm talking about the horse. It looks like it's auditioning to be the hunky male on the cover of a romance novel.

Meh...

He could surprise me, but War Horse doesn't look great. The trailer is a real throw back to his pre-Dreamworks early 90's Amblin days, but otherwise if not for his name i wouldn't have cared.

um...

I try to not be negative on here, there’s a bit too much of that as is, BUT this poster is lame. It gives me the feeling of being 10 and having to do boring book report, on a too long book, that I do not want to read

Looking forward to both and pretty much anything that Spielberg does but I am looking to War Horse more. Based on the trailer, this should be one of the most gorgeous looking movies ever made!

nice

The poster reminds me of Drew Struzan's art. He did a ton of posters for Speilberg and others, but has faded away lately. I wonder if he had a hand in this?

The movie is based off a book but there is also a play of the story on Broadway right now, it won the Tony for best play and thats a pretty good premonition for the movie.

Should both be quality titles

Looking forward to both, hopefully TinTin turns out to be a quality adventure/mystery tale.

I'm looking forward to Tintin a bit more, personally. I grew up reading Hergé's strips. All footage of the film I've seen so far looks like nothing I've ever seen before. A very unique style of animation.
I'll see War Horse in theatres as well, but only because it's Spielberg. Had it been made by anyone else, based on the trailer, I would have passed on it.
