Kevin Costner’s self-financed Western ‘Horizon’ has bombed at the box office

Kevin Costner’s self-financed Western Horizon: An American Saga has bombed at the box office.The movie is the first of four planned chapters, which tells a number of stories over the course of 12 years in the American West.The first instalment, which also stars Sienna Miller, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sam Worthington, Ella Hunt, Isabelle Fuhrman and Jena Malone, was mostly financed by Costner himself, with the actor spending over $98million (£77million) of his own money on the project.Now, the film has opened to poor box office sales, making just $11million (£8.6million) in the US (per Slash film). Following its premiere at Cannes in May, Horizon was largely panned by critics, with The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney describing the film as a “a clumsy slog beyond saving.”Peter Bradshaw gave the film just two stars in his review for The Guardian. He wrote: “The film moseys blankly along and, aside from some mildly diverting moments, it spends 180 keeping you guessing as to when and whether it is going to be interesting.”In a more positive review, however, The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin awarded it four stars and wrote: “The film is earnest yet hopeful, with crisply drawn characters – but perhaps its full grandeur won’t be fully realised until part two.”Despite the mostly negative reviews, the film did receive a lengthy, seven-minute standing ovation at Cannes, leaving Costner visibly emotional.Recently, Costner also hit back at critics who complained about the representation of Native Americans in the film.

Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1,” the Western movie Kevin Costner directed, co-wrote and stars in, tanked at the box office last weekend, grossing a paltry $11 million.More alarming is that the three-hour film, which the former “Yellowstone” star reportedly put $38 million of his own money into, is the first of a four-part series. The second entry hits theaters quickly in August, and the third is currently filming. According to Vanity Fair, Costner, 69, plans to devote $100 million of his own cash to the ambitious effort.“I’ve mortgaged 10 acres on the water in Santa Barbara where I was going to build my last house,” Costner told Deadline.

Box Office: ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ Scores Franchise-Best $53 Million Debut, Kevin Costner’s ‘Horizon’ Misfires With $11 Million

Yet “A Quiet Place: Day One” — a prequel story in Paramount’s post-apocalyptic horror series — landed the biggest debut in the franchise, exceeding the original 2018 “A Quiet Place,” ($50 million to start) and the 2021 sequel, “A Quiet Place Part II” (a $48 million debut during COVID).

Inside Kevin Costner’s Big Gamble as His Self-Financed Western Epic ‘Horizon’ Opens

Matt Donnelly Senior Film Writer A covered wagon’s worth of ink has been spilled in recent weeks on “Horizon: An American Saga,” the potentially ruinous three-hour dice roll that writer, producer, director and star Kevin Costner makes this weekend when the first of four planned films about the American West opens in theaters. You’ve probably heard that the films — long-gestating passion projects from a movie icon who in recent years reclaimed his cultural relevance with the hit series “Yellowstone” – are pricey. The first cost $100 million to produce and will be followed only weeks later by its sequel.

Kevin Costner hits back at “delicate” critics of his new film over Native American representation

Kevin Costner has hit back at critics who have complained about the representation of Native Americans in his new film Horizon: An American Saga.The movie is the first of four planned chapters, which tells a number of stories over the course of 12 years in the American West. But some critics have noted that the beginning of the film appears to perpetuate certain stereotypes about Indigenous people, initially representing them as brutal “savages” who attack the white townsfolk.However, as the film progresses, it delves deeper into the lives of the Native characters and the struggles imposed upon them by the white settlers.In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Costner, who stars in, directs and co-writes the western epic, expressed his frustration with the critics who have been too impatient to see how the story unfolds.“I’m just so tired of everybody trying to be so delicate about things,” he said.

Zack Sharf Digital News Director Kevin Costner recently joined his “Horizon: An American Saga” cast for a live recording of the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, and he said his planned four-movie saga differs from many Western films that have come before in that its female characters “drive the story in every plot line.” Costner, who co-wrote the franchise with Jon Baird, said he “couldn’t conceive of a scene that didn’t involve a woman” while shaping the story. “Horizon” chronicles the journey of several characters during and after the Civil War as they settle the American West. Kevin Costner stars in the film opposite a sprawling ensemble cast, which includes Sienna Miller, Jena Malone, Isabelle Fuhrman, Abbey Lee and Ella Hunt.

‘Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1’ review: Kevin Costner quit ‘Yellowstone’ for this?!

He departed the most popular TV show in the country and decided to tell the sweeping story of American Western expansion in four interconnected films before anybody knew if the first one was any good. Well, by the end of “Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1,” which clocks in at more than three glacial hours, I could not fathom committing another 540 minutes of my time to this bloated ego trip.
