Brace yourselves. I’m going to write several posts about the upcoming major motion picture version of “War Horse.” Here’s the first. BTW, I have no connection whatsoever to the production. This is all my own opinion.
In the world of horses and culture, the release of “War Horse” directed by Hollywood visionary Stephen Spielberg is a Very Big Deal. Like, a “Dick Francis Passes Away” kind of Big Deal.
I’m talking headlines, kids. Horses in the spotlight. Maybe not on the red carpet, but in the forefront of cultural consciousness at a point other than Kentucky Derby week.
So this is our chance. Our chance to show that good movies about horses will draw crowds and make money. And I’m going to tell you why that’s so important.
