Meet the Characters of Kevin Costner’s Western Epic “Horizon: An American Saga”

Discover the characters and story of Kevin Costner's latest Western epic, "Horizon: An American Saga," premiering in Philippine cinemas on June 28. Immerse yourself in a tale of adventure, survival, and the American Civil War era.

Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner’s latest directorial effort, his passion project “Horizon: An American Saga,” is set to open in Philippine cinemas on June 28, the same day as its U.S. release. Costner, who wrote and stars in the film, invested his own money to bring this sweeping Western saga to life. “I have a giant love for my movies and what they can be,” says Costner. “I was interested in the story that I wanted to tell. I put on the hat of being a financier, using my own money, mortgaging my own property, taking that risk to follow my own dream. I think, in a way, that I’m somebody that just had to go west myself, and not know what was out there, and not be afraid of it. And that all the trappings of the things that were good to me were not things I was choosing to protect. I wanted to feed my imagination and expand my possibilities.”

Set during the American Civil War from 1861 to 1865, this epic tale will take audiences on an emotional journey across a nation divided. The saga is planned for four chapters, with the second installment arriving in August.
