If you build it, he will come...back!
Kevin Costner recently returned to Dyersville, Iowa where the 1989 classic Field of Dreams was shot to celebrate the movie's 25th anniversary.
Joined by co-stars Dwier Brown (John Kinsella) and Timothy Busfield (Mark), the trio took time to reflect on the film's lasting impact.
“A lot of times people go ‘You know, the movies...movies don't mean anything,'" mused Kevin. "This one did. This little movie did," adding the film's theme of second chances "rang a bell" with audience members.
But it didn't just make a lasting impression on theatergoers. Kevin wanted to bring his family back to the place where he made many fond memories.
“I get a chance to bring my three little kids (Cayden, 7, Hayes, 5, and Grace, 4) here. It's a really good full circle for me that this movie lives so long,” he shared.
The field may not be heaven, like Ray Liotta's character compares it to in the movie, but the landmark does attract an estimated 65,000 tourists every year.
And on this special day, the cast joked about on-set secrets, recalling how the drought of '88 killed all the corn (which had a big role in the flick) and left the grass a nasty brown color.
But what really got the crowd excited: a large screen set up on the field, playing the drama's final scene.
"Movies at their best are about moments that you never ever forget," Kevin told Today when asked about the film's final shot. We couldn't agree more.
