War Horse on Blu-ray and DVD

Apr 03, 2012

Discover the wonderful connection between humans and animals in War Horse, which hits shelves April 3, 2012.

About the Movie

War Horse is a story of incredible friendship, loyalty, courage, hope and tenacity. Based on an award winning play, and set against the sweeping canvas of World War I, this deeply heartfelt tale begins with the remarkable friendship between a feisty colt named Joey and his young trainer Albert. When they’re forced apart by war, the film follows Joey’s extraordinary journey as he changes and inspires the lives of everyone he meets. No matter where they go or what they experience, both boy and horse keep forging ahead, driven by devotion and the hope of returning home.

 

Special Features

In addition to the full-length film, the four-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a ton of special features, such as:

  • A Filmmaking Journey: Academy Award winning director and producer Steven Spielberg provides a unique and unprecedented look into the making and filming of War Horse.

  • The Sounds of War Horse: Sound designer Gary Rydstrom takes us through the sophisticated sound design he create for War Horse.
  • Through the Producer’s Lens: Producer Kathleen Kennedy shares the photos she took during filming and recounts how she discovered the source material, as well as her appreciation of Steven Spielberg’s vision, the team that sounds him, and why War Horse appealed to her.
  • War Horse: The Look: Steven Spielberg introduces us to his creative team of production designer Rick Carter, costume designer Joanna Johnston and director of photography Janusz Kaminski, who discuss what it took to design the look for the film.

When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
