New War Horse set pics arrive

A bumper batch of new stills and on-set photos from Steven Spielberg’s War Horse have arrived online, giving us the chance to see The Beard in action alongside young star Jeremy Irvine.

There are plenty of images of loveable horse Joey and his bright-eyed pal Irvine, as well as a look at Tom Hiddlestone’s Captain Nichol. Most interesting of all however are the ones of Spielberg on set.

The trench-set snap is a great indicator of just how involved the old master remains after all these years – the expression of focus on his face tells you all you need to know about his continued enthusiasm for the craft.

Set against the backdrop of WW1, War Horse tells the story of Albert (Irvine), a young lad who sets off to France to rescue his equine friend from the perils of combat. The film arrives here on 13 January 2012, so to whet your appetite, have a good old browse through the latest images below…
