Kevin Costner’s ‘Horizon 2’ No Longer Has a Release Date After ‘One’ Was a Box Office Flop

Kevin Costner’s ‘Horizon 2’ No Longer Has a Release Date After ‘One’ Was a Box Office Flop

There is no release date for Kevin Costner’s next film.

“Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter Two,” the first of three sequels to Costner’s ambitious Western that hit theaters last month and flopped financially, has been removed from the August schedule.

The sequel, which the former ‘Yellowstone’ star wrote, directed and starred in, no longer has a release date.

“Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter Two,” the film that Kevin Costner wrote, directed and starred in, will no longer be released in August. AP

“Chapter Two” was set to be released on August 16, just weeks after the first film, but critics have panned “Chapter One,” the Civil War epic that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

In a one-star review, The Post called the $100 million film, on which Costner spent about $38 million of his own money, “an embarrassing, poorly told mess.”

The reviewer said: “I can’t imagine devoting another 540 minutes to this inflated ego trip.”

Audiences weren’t much more generous. “Horizon” made just $23 million in its first two weeks.

The series is distributed by Warner Bros.’ New Line Cinema.

“Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter One” has grossed only $23 million to date. AP

“Territory Pictures and New Line Cinema have decided not to release Horizon: Chapter 2 on August 16 to give audiences a greater chance to discover the first part of Horizon in the coming weeks, including on PVOD and Max,” a New Line spokesperson told Variety.

“We thank our exhibition partners for their continued support, which allows audiences across the United States to discover the film during its theatrical run.”

“Chapter Three” is currently in production.

Costner is reportedly planning to fork out $100 million from his own pocket to finance the pricey project.
