Kevin Costner, 69, was also in attendance among many notable people from the industry at CinemaCon held in Las Vegas on April 9. He unveiled the extensive look of Horizon: An American Saga. The first part of the four-part Western epic will be released on June 28 and it's second part on Aug 16. Both will have a theatrical release.

The premise of the movie explores time during the American Civil War. The film will take a deep dive into its plot and take you on an emotional journey. This movie seems like it is a lot closer to Costner’s heart as he has directed, co-written, and starred in it. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros.

During CinemaCon at the stage, Costner said, “I think about the promise of America.” He added, “There was a promise out here that if you could go if you were tough enough, if you were mean enough, if you were resourceful enough, if you were lucky enough, you could take what you wanted in America.”

“That promise meant that we stepped on a whole group of people that had been here for thousands of years,” Costner said in reference to Native Americans. Horizon’s storyline is incorporated with that struggle as well, “If you could come west if you could survive it, you could make a home and at the expense of a lot of things. So to me, that's drama,” he went on to add.
