Steven Spielberg‘s second movie of 2011, War Horse, opens right at the end of the year, on December 28. Accordingly, Dreamworks has been holding its cards close so far, with only one trailer released to show what Spielberg has done with the adaptation of Michael Morpurgo‘s novel and the stage play it spawned.

The film also stars Emily Watson, Peter Mullan, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Niels Arestrup, Nicolas Bro, David Kross, Leonard Carow, Rainer Bock, Robert Emms and Patrick Kennedy.
