The first trailer for Horizon: An American Saga has dropped, and social networks are flooded with strong and amusing opinions on the project of (and with) Kevin Costner.

In fact, some Internet users did not fail to emphasize that the epic saga would probably only attract a very specific type of audience: “This Horizon saga is going to be like Avatar for those over 65. Kevin Costner = Jim Cameron for cable TV aficionados.”

Horizon: An American Saga is going to be the cinematic event of the year for fans.”

Finally, another wave of comments raised a very fair question: the saga Horizon by Kevin Costner will it offer adequate representation of Native Americans? For many Internet users, the published trailer does not smell good on this point.
