'War Horse' TV spot: The cast sells Spielberg's 'emotional journey'

“It’s about our strength,” says actor Jeremy Irvine in the new promo for Steven Spielberg’s War Horse. Well, if that’s the case, then I guess I’m going to have to shore up my fortitude to weather each new clip from this film, because at this point I’m usually a useless puddle of a human being by the time they’re over. This new clip – which is billed as a TV Spot, but, at two minutes long, I humbly expect it to play pretty exclusively online instead – features much of the cast of the film, interspersed with some familiar shots, as well as a few new ones.

Other than Irvine, the newcomer who plays the (human) lead in the film, Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Tom Hiddleston, and Benedict Cumberbatch, all take time to lend their stirring British accents to the cause of selling the film’s grand themes. Check it out below:
