Costner’s 2nd “Horizon” Not Going to Theaters After Part 1 Ignored by “Yellowstone” Fans, Loses Millions


There’s no more “Horizon” for Kevin Costner.

As I predicted, part 2 of his expensive 12 hour project will not hit theaters next month. Part 1 of “Horizon” is a huge flop at the box office. Part 2 will go to streaming. Each part of “Horizon” costs $100 million. Costner said he put $38 million of his own money into the project. But “Horizon” has made just $23 million and will be a massive financial loser. Part 2 was not welcomed by theaters. Costner says he’s going to film Part 3 anyway, even if no one wants to see it. Eventually, “Horizon” will be syndicated as a miniseries, although it will never break even at this point. Costner’s hubris really overtook him with “Horizon.” Dead at the box office, the former Oscar winner had a huge comeback on TV with “Yellowstone.” Costner thought he could capitalize on that by leaving the show and making these movies. “Yellowstone” fans were obviously irate. They resented what he did, and refused to support “Horizon.”
