The second trailer for Steven Spielberg’s period epic “War Horse” has dropped and if it’s any indicator, it looks like we’re in for a sweeping tale that will leave no heartstring unplucked.

Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, the film tells the story of a horse and the lives of the people it encounters and affects throughout Europe during the first World War.

When it comes to scope and sentiment, no other filmmaker can do what Spielberg does and this film looks like no exception. Let’s face it, asking me if I’m interested in a new, stirring Spielberg directed/John Williams scored epic about a boy and his horse is like asking, “Hey, Brian, how does a warm blanket, hot cocoa and a spot by the fire sound?”

 

Count me in.
