To paraphrase 'Superman: The Movie': 'War Horse' will make you believe a horse can do just about anything. Based on the renowned book by Michael Morpurgo -- which has already been turned into a Tony Award-winning play -- 'War Horse' tells the story of Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and his beloved horse, Joey, and how their bonds of friendship cannot be broken, even during the turmoil of World War I. Bracing and heartwarming, 'War Horse' is poised to be one of the favorites for Best Picture, and perhaps you can see why in this exclusive new clip. Above, watch Albert plead with a kind British soldier (Tom Hiddleston) to let him join Joey on the front line.
Co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Emily Watson, Toby Kebbell, Peter Mullan, Eddie Marsan and David Thewlis, 'War Horse' arrives in theaters on Christmas Day.
