In major cities tonight, there were screenings of Steven Spielberg‘s War Horse.  Following the screening, Spielberg did a Q&A at the New York screening and it was live-streamed to other screening locations and online.  The Internet livecast remains online for all to see, but I’m choosing to skip it.  I haven’t seen the movie yet and I would rather form my own opinion on what Spielberg accomplished rather than hear him talk openly about the film to an audience who has seen the final cut.

However, if that context doesn’t bother you, then you can hit the jump to check out the Q&A.  The film stars Emily Watson, David Thewlis, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irvine, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Toby KebbellWar Horse opens December 25th.

Click over to MSN to see the Q&A.  We’d embed it, but the embed can only be seen in Internet Explorer, which makes sense (vertical integration!), but screw that.  If an embed becomes available for all browsers, we’ll update the story. [Note: The entire Q&A ran over half an hour, but the version online has been edited down to six minutes]

Here’s the official synopsis for War Horse:

DreamWorks Pictures’ “War Horse,” director Steven Spielberg’s epic adventure, is a tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets–British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter–before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land. The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse–an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. “War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war– a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.
