War Horse star trots in to premiere

The real star of Steven Spielberg's new blockbuster War Horse will trot down the red carpet this weekend.

The thoroughbred, called Joey, is being driven from his stables in Milton Keynes to face the photographers in Leicester Square, in central London, on Sunday.

He will be sharing the limelight with Spielberg, the film's stars and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The First World War epic, which has been nominated for best drama at the prestigious Golden Globes, is based on a play inspired by children's author Michael Morpurgo's novel.

It stars Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch, Emily Watson, Tom Hiddleston and David Thewlis and follows on from the success of the play which debuted at the National Theatre on London's South Bank in 2007 before sell-out West End and Broadway runs.
