PLANET MARKETS – Day 6. Kevin Coster was surrounded by his family this Sunday, May 19, on the Cannes red carpet. The American actor and director came to present his new film Horizonselected out of competition.

The hero of Body Guard turned heads at the Cannes Film Festival. Present for several days in the pearl of palaces, the 69-year-old actor and director finally walked the red carpet, this Sunday, May 19, to present his film Horizon, selected out of competition for this 77th edition. This is the first part of a fresco in 4 3-hour films, dedicated to the conquest of the West, or the genesis of the United States of America, which will be released in theaters on July 3. A western that is both epic and intimate, with great ambitions and shot entirely on location, in which Sienna Miller and himself star. Highly anticipated, the feature film marks his return behind the camera, almost twenty years after the release ofOpen Range.

A family climb of stairs

On this occasion, the filmmaker was surrounded by several members of his family. First his son Hayes Logan, 15 years old, who makes his first steps on screen in his father’s film. Also present were his daughters, Lily, Annie and Grace Avery, as well as his other son Cayden. After escorting them to the Palais des Festivals, it was with the team of his film that the actor paraded again. Sienna Miller, who plays one of the main roles, looked very summery in her sheer pastel-colored dress. Her appearance comes just four months after the birth of her second child last December, the fruit of her union with actor Oli Green. He and Marlowe, the actress’s first daughter aged 10, had come to support her.

Furthermore, several personalities shone on the red carpet before going to discover Horizon. Among them, Antoine Reinartz,Anatomy of a fall by Justine Triet, or the filmmaker by Costa-Gavras. Also on the parade were stars like Isabelle Huppert, in a magnificent snow queen-style dress, Michelle Yeoh and her straightened hair, or even Julian Moore, who is part of the special program Woman in motion, putting women in the spotlight during the event. Afterwards, everyone applauded Kevin Coster and his team in the projection room. A long standing ovation which aroused the emotion of the latter, as the stakes of his new feature film are so important. He notably revealed that he had to mortgage one of his properties to be able to produce this titanic work, the first two episodes of which will be released during the year.

In question, his project, launched in 1998, was initially shunned by distributors. “In 2003, I wanted to shoot it but no studio wanted it while my film Open Range had worked well. I said to myself: You don’t want my film! I’m going to do four!”, he declared on the AFP microphone. To finance his series, he would have invested nearly 50 million dollars from his own pocket. Furthermore, if he plays one of the main heroes, Kevin Costner wanted to immerse the viewer in a very embodied and feminine story. The genesis of the United States obviously includes many women, erased from the collective narrative. “They played a capital role,” he then corrected in the columns of Parisian .

The rise of the steps of May 19

Lula vs. Jair Bolsonaro

At the same time as this rise of the steps, the filmmaker Olivier Stone presented his documentary Lula, dedicated to Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and co-directed with Rob Wilson. Always very elegant, Oliver Stone showed up in a black tuxedo, sunglasses screwed on his nose. His film was selected in a special screening and looks back on the extraordinary journey of the left-wing politician, between fall and rise. The director – to whom we also owe the film The Doors with Val Kilmer – zooms in particular on his nineteen months spent in prison for obscure reasons, and on his return to power in 2022, succeeding his rival Jair Bolsonaro.
