This Kevin Costner classic is only available on Netflix for a few more days.

A vintage Kevin Costner film is currently available to stream on Netflix, but consumers only have a few days to enjoy it. Waterworld, a big-budget Costner picture from the 1990s starring Jeanne Tripplehorn, Tina Majorino, and late cinema icon Dennis Hopper, is now available on Netflix. Michael Jeter, a popular character actor who died in 2003, also appeared in the film.

The film Waterworld is set in a dystopian future in which the polar ice caps have melted and the bulk of the Earth has submerged. A small percentage of humanity managed to survive, with some sprouting gills to adapt to life in the ocean. Costner plays The Mariner, a loner who “reluctantly befriends Helen (Tripplehorn) and her young companion, Enola (Majorino), as they flee from a hostile artificial island. Soon, the sinister Smokers are pursuing them in the belief that Enola holds the key to finding the mythical Dryland,” according to the film’s synopsis. Waterworld was, at the time of its release, the most costly film ever filmed, costing probably between (dollar)172-175 million, although it received mixed reviews from reviewers. Fans, on the other hand, rushed to the film in droves, making it one of 1995’s highest-grossing films. Despite its success, Waterworld was unable to recoup its costs at the box office, although it did well in home video sales. The film grossed over (dollar)264 million by the end of its theatrical run.

Those who are watching or have watched Waterworld and want to see additional Coster films can do so on Netflix. Dances with Wolves and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves are among his other legendary flicks available on the service. Rumor Has It, a 2005 rom-com starring Costner and Jennifer Aniston, and Black or White, a heartwarming drama film starring Costner from 2014, are also available on Netflix. Finally, fans of Costner’s action pictures can watch 3 Days to Kill and The Highwaymen, which are now available on Netflix.

Costner is making a new name for himself these days, starring in Yellowstone on the Paramount Network. The neo-Western series, developed by Taylor Sheridan, is currently in its fourth season, with a spinoff dubbed 1883 already in the works. Yellowstone airs new episodes on the Paramount Network on Sundays at 8 p.m., with Seasons 1-3 available to stream at any time… Summary of Entertainment News from Brinkwire.
