Sight unseen, Steven Spielberg's War Horse, based only on the trailer, is clearly Oscar bait. The new poster (below) offers exactly what you'd expect for the PG-13 film based on Michael Morpurgo's novel about a boy, his horse and WWI. It has Spielberg and Christmastime-heart-tugging written all over it. "Separated by War. Tested by Battle. Bound by Friendship." Awww. And what a lovely sunset, too.
