Our First Look At Kevin Costner’s Sprawling New Western, “Horizon: An American Saga,” Is Here

We can’t wait for this one!

Our first look at Kevin Costner in the sweeping, two-part Western that pulled him away from Yellowstone is finally here.

Yesterday Warner Bros. released a teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1, set to premiere in theaters on June 28, 2024. Chapter 2 will follow quickly, hitting theaters August 16, 2024.

Described as “a story of Americana and patriotism too big for one film,” Horizon: An American Saga is a “multi-faceted chronicle covering the Civil War expansion and settlement of the American West.”

The new 42-second preview (below) doesn’t give away much in terms of plot, but the vibe is one Costner fans are sure to appreciate. Seen riding a horse and brandishing a shotgun, more than anything the clip teases the actor’s return to the gunslinging 1860s, the time period in American history that has become his theatrical sweet-spot.

According to the official logline, 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, 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 attempting to discover what it truly means to be the United States of America.”

History-buff Costner writes, directs, and stars alongside an impressive ensemble cast including Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, Tatanka Means, Danny Huston, Will Patton, Luke Wilson, Jamie Campbell Bower, Giovanni Ribisi, and more.


Horizon: An American Saga is a “passion project” of Costner that he spent 30 years trying to get off the ground. In a June interview with Deadline, the Yellowstone star revealed that he went as far as mortgaging one of his beachfront properties to help finance the project.

Costner, whose wife of 18 years, Christine Baumgartner, recently filed for divorce, isn’t afraid to admit that he has a lot on the line at the moment. But he’s been in this situation before, most notably with Dances with Wolves, which won seven Oscars.

“I’m not a gambler. People might look at this and say, ‘Oh, this is a gamble.’ And I go, ‘Well, I guess it is, but do I want to go to Vegas and gamble?’ No. I’m not that kind of gambler,” he explained to Deadline. “I gamble on the love of story. I’m gambling on people, in a sense. I can’t make them go to the theater, but if they get there, I’m going to try to take care of them the best I possibly can.”

We can’t wait to see this one, y’all!
