Could this be the start of Oscar season? The first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s movie of the play War Horse has arrived. And we’ve got it here…

Already being touted as a possible Oscar contender, the second of two Steven Spielberg-directed movies heading our way in the coming months (following Tintin) is War Horse. This is his film adaptation of the award-winning play of the same name.

And it's got Oscar ingredients in place here. The swirling music of the trailer, for starters. The inclusion of a horse (see: Seabiscuit). But more than that, there's already a real sense of scale about the project, and a sheen of quality.

The trailer holds back a lot of what the film is actually about, but there's surely enough promise on display to sell more than a few tickets.

The movie arrives in the US in December, and in the UK in January.
