Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1, including streaming details.

After thirty years in the making, Kevin Costner’s Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 is finally arriving. A Western epic of huge proportions, it could be the cinematic event of the year for the genre’s fans (not to mention Costner’s Yellowstone followers).

In our Horizon: An American Saga review, we said it was a “poignant watch for fans of Costner… a worthy undertaking for those still romantic about supporting the rarer and rarer indulgences of great cinema legends.” As such, you may be looking to check out the new movie and see if it’s worth the lengthy runtime.

Here’s how to watch Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1, so you can grab your spurs and boots and head out in style.

Is Horizon: An American Saga streaming?

Horizon: An American Saga – Part 1 will be released on Premium VOD on July 16. There is currently no streaming release date.

The theatrical release of Horizon: An American Saga – Part 2 has been delayed, as well, to allow more time for viewers who missed Part 1’s theatrical release to catch up on VOD.

No streaming release date has been announced, but it will be on streaming services eventually. Since it’s a Warner Bros. production, it’ll likely head straight to Max.

Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1 theatrical release date

Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1 hit theaters on June 28, 2024.

Horizon is a big-screen Western if you’ve ever seen one, but it just didn’t have the best of luck. The film had a miserable box office performance in its opening weekend, being crushed by the likes of A Quiet Place: Day One and Inside Out 2.

Horizon was an incredibly costly production, with Costner putting up a significant portion of the budget himself. The actor isn’t worried about the box office performance, though.

Horizon: An American Saga runtime

Chapter 1 of Horizon: An American Saga is 181 minutes long.

That’s three hours and one minute. For comparison, Dances With Wolves (Costner’s other Western epic) had the same original runtime. However, the director’s cut is 3 hours and 56 minutes long.

If Costner’s four-movie plan for Horizon works out, that could amount to a 12-hour-long film series.
