Kevin Costner's Western Epic Horizon Gets Suitably Massive Runtime

The duration for Kevin Costner's Horizon: An American Saga appears to have been disclosed. Horizon, directed by Costner, is a forthcoming Western film that will be released in two parts.   

The first section, Horizon: An American Saga - Chapter 1, will be released on June 28, followed by the second part, Horizon: An American Saga - Chapter 2, on August 16.  

According to Deadline, the runtime for the next Horizon film has been revealed. The source described Horizon as a "3-hour Western," implying that the film will last three hours.   

The insider did not say which of the two Horizon films they were referring to.  

In addition to revealing the Horizon runtime, the source speculated that the picture might be "either a $5 million or a $100 million movie" at the box office.  

If this is correct, Horizon will have a lengthy summer rollout. Horizon's three-hour runtime, while lengthy, is not wholly unexpected.  

For starters, the run duration is appropriate for the genre, as the picture is set to be a duology of epic Westerns, which traditionally use long run periods to span intricate tales and allow the audience to soak in the lush, wide-shot countryside.   

Second, Costner has apparently invested heavily in the Horizon films, so it's understandable that he'd take his time with them.
