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 currently on Broadway. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.

Now imagine a John Williams score over the top of this...and then let the tears flow. Don't try to fight it...there's no stopping them. 

So with many thanks to the lovely folks from DreamWorks, we have 10 double passes to the preview screening of War Horse at Hoyts Melbourne Central on Monday the 12th of December at 6:30pm.

  1. Do we just post here to enter?
    I never want to have to go to war, but if I did it would be best to take along Draco from Dragonheart. He's big enough to carry me so I wouldn't have to march everywhere, he flies, he breaths fire, and he's quite a good conversationalist and can even carry a tune in a bucket. So good in the action and good in the lulls between.

  2. Call me conservative but if forced to choose only the one companion it would be of the canine variety. More specifically it would be Blood from Harlan Ellison's 'A Boy and his Dog' because he's cute, a brute, psychic and an experienced female provider.

    What more could you want?

  3. Depending on the war really. I'd love to go to war with either Mighty Joe Young or King Kong because they are big F*** off gorillas and that's about the coolest thing ever! but also really big targets so probably not the greatest of allies, particularly if we were trying to hide. So I guess it would be Ceaser from Rise of the planet of the apes, What that chimp couldn't do wasn't worth doing.
