Kevin Costner is riding back into the director’s saddle after nearly two decades, and does it promise to be a wild ride.

Can you believe it’s been since 2003’s Open Range that Costner took the helm as director? But now, he’s gifted fans with a trailer for his much-anticipated cinematic event with two parts, Horizon: An American Saga. And, get this, he’s not just directing – he’s also starring and penning the script! Both parts are set for a summer release next year – June 28 and August 16, respectively.

Horizon: An American Saga is a sweeping story set in the American West, spanning a tumultuous fifteen years. Imagine the challenges and choices faced by settlers with the specter of the Civil War brewing ominously in the backdrop. To quote the actual synopsis, the movies delve deep into “the allure of the Old West and the saga of how it was claimed – and at times relinquished – through sheer grit, determination, and heartache.”

Now, about that teaser: it’s understated elegance at its finest. Majestic shots of the American frontier greet the viewer, immediately transporting us to a bygone era. Then, Costner, looking every inch the Western hero, is seen on horseback, firing a gun. I mean, talk about iconic. But wait, there’s more! A quick glimpse of a galaxy of stars hints at the ensemble cast that’s been assembled.
