Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse” about to screen – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell Finally, the last few Oscar contenders (or, at least, perceived Oscar contenders) are starting to show face, giving a little more clarity to the ever-developing awards race.

As reported earlier, Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar” will open AFI Fest on Thursday, an event that just announced it will close with Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin.” A secret screening of an awards contender (that has been secret-screening in select cities) will be in L.A. tonight … from what I’ve been told. And now Spielberg’s OTHER holiday film, “War Horse,” plans to hold word-of-mouth screenings in select markets tonight and tomorrow, Nov. 1 and 2.

Film Metro has the screening details for locations that are, to be honest, off the beaten path. But that’s great news for people who live in Beaverton, Oregon or Olathe, Kansas.

Maybe the film’s going after honest reactions from non-industry types. If so, good for Disney. They know Spielberg’s adaptation of the Tony-winning play will be seen soon enough by the critics and Oscar bloggers waiting to see where “War Horse” stands in the race.

So far, most of these screenings are sold out. Will more be added in new locations? Let’s hope.
