Next week, American moviegoers will be treated to Steven Spielberg's majestic War Horse: the story of a horse named Joey who prevails through many World War I adventures to find his way back home to his best friend, young Albert Narracott (Jeremy Irvine)—the true testament to the fact that when you truly love somebody, even wild [something...] can't keep you from getting to them.
We have compiles a harras of War Horse clips in celebration of the feature film and all of its gallant glory. Enjoy the videos below and catch War Horse in theaters everywhere. You can also check out these two reviews of War Horse: one by our own Matt Patches, and one by the demonic rock band GWAR.
As it turns out, not quite everybody loves horses. When patriarch Ted (Peter Mullan) brings home Joey, his wife Rose (Emily Watson) is none too pleased with her husband’s purchase. But despite this domestic war, young Albert sees something in Joey. Perhaps…a friend.
In order to keep Joey, Albert must train him. Joey doesn’t seem ready to beckon to calls at first, but the passionate Albert gets through to him soon enough.
Fancy cars are an age-old way of impressing girls. But as Albert and Joey prove in this next clip, they’re no match for war horses.
Albert talks with Joey about a battalion flag that has been through an entire war. Little does Albert know, his own horse is about to have quite a similar adventure to tell of.
Things get a little heavy when Albert and Joey are forced to part ways. Captain Nicholls (Tom Hiddleston) is drafting Joey to war, but promises Albert that he will take supreme care of him.
As it turns out, ol’ Joey has some pretty impressive racing chops. It looks like this horse might be ready for war after all.
Joey finds his way through many lives during the course of the war—one of which is that of a young French girl named Emilie (Celine Buckens), who is bent on teaching Joey to jump.
Emilie’s grandfather (Niels Arestrup) gives her an inspiring speech about France’s superior carrier pigeons, and the meaning of bravery. Something tells me a certain war horse is going to find himself tested with the challenge of bravery soon.
