Get ready to go back in time in the summer of 2024! Warner Bros has unveiled the first look teaser for an ambitious new Kevin Costner project called Horizon: An American Saga. This epic western will be released as two parts during the summer of 2024. He has already finished filming, and both we be released to back-to-back – the first in June 2024 and the next in August 2024. Filming of at least the first installment began on August last year in southern Utah, concluding in November. Filming of the second part began by May 2023. The westerns chronicle a multi-faceted, 15-year span of pre-and post-Civil War expansion and settlement of the American West. The massive ensemble cast includes a whole bunch of major names: Kevin Costner, Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, Abbey Lee, Michael Rooker, Danny Huston, Luke Wilson, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jeff Fahey, Will Patton, Tatanka Means, Owen Crow Shoe, Ella Hunt, and Jamie Campbell Bower. This looks like it could bring crowds back to the cinema for this experience, but only if westerns aren’t dead? After the success of “Yellowstone”, I think Hollywood is hopeful. What do you think?
Here’s the first look teaser for Kevin Costner’s Horizon: An American Saga, direct from YouTube:
In the great tradition of Warner Bros. Pictures’ iconic Westerns, Horizon: An American Saga explores the lure of the Old West and how it was won—and lost—through the blood, sweat and tears of many. Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, Kevin Costner’s ambitious cinematic adventure will take audiences on an emotional journey across a country at war with itself, experienced through the lens of families, friends and foes – all of them attempting to discover what it truly means to be the United States of America. Horizon: An American Saga is directed by Oscar-winning American actor / filmmaker Kevin Costner, director of the movies Dances with Wolves, The Postman, and Open Range previously, and a producer on “Yellowstone”. The screenplay is written by Jon Baird (executive producer of “National Parks”) and Kevin Costner. It’s also produced by Kevin Costner; executive produced by Danny Peykoff. Warner Bros will debut Costner’s Horizon: An American Saga – Part 1 in theaters nationwide starting June 28th, 2024 next summer, then An American Saga – Part 2 in theaters on August 16th, 2024. Who Who’s excited for it?
