    John Williams Will Score Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' Plus A Load Of 'War Horse' Images

    While he may have dabbled in a number of genres, told a variety of stories, and balanced big blockbusters with thoughtful dramas, the one constant in the career of Steven Spielberg (Daddy-issue themes aside) has been John Williams. The composer has worked on 25 of the director's films (that incl...

    Watch: New 'War Horse' Trailer Shows Off More Of The Film's Breathtaking Imagery

    Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, which has also been turned into an acclaimed stage play, "War Horse" almost seems too easy as piece of awards season bait (okay, maybe not as easy as putting Tom Hanks in a 9/11 drama, but still). The film follows a young man named Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and h...

    Spielberg Films Shuffle: 'War Horse' Moves To Christmas Day; 'The Adventures Of Tintin' On Dec 21

    2011 for Steven Spielberg is much more difficult than it was in 2005 -- the last time the super-prolific filmmaker released two films in one year. In 2005, you had "War of the Worlds" in the summer and six months later you had "Munich," and very little had to be done by way of managing time between...

While we got a teaser trailer for the film this summer, "War Horse" is one of the small handful of awards season pics that has yet to be screened for anybody at all. Spielberg doesn't need ...

    Post-Fall Film Festival Season: Five Movies We're Still Eagerly Awaiting

    And Five We're Worried About/DreadingWith the Toronto International Film Festival now over, the dust is beginning to settle on 2011 and we're moving into the final stage of the fall movie season. Many, if not most, of autumn's Oscar season big hitters have now been revealed, leaving principally commercial fare, and a few prestige-y films that are rushing towards completion. As ever, the benefits of opening your Christmas presents early is a mixed bag; it means that we're able to firmly recommend some big fall films, movies like "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "Shame" and "We Need To Talk About Kevin." It means we can also tell you to be wary of ...

    'War Horse' Author Michael Morpurgo's 'Private Peaceful' Heading To Big Screen

    Rising Stars Jack O'Connell, George MacKay & Alexandra Roach Lead Cast, Mark Knopfler To Write ScoreIt's not out until Christmas, but already "War Horse" is widely seen as an awards front-runner: it is, after all, directed by Steven Spielberg, based on a beloved novel, follows hot on the heels of a much-praised stage version that's been a smash hit both in London and on Broadway, and combines both a gruelling war tale and a touching journey to track down an animal, so it will have to be a real disaster to not leave audiences teary-eyed at the end. And it looks like people are banking on its success, as another novel with a World War One setti...
