Costner: Field of Dreams hit high mark

Kevin Costner celebrated the release of his 1989 film with a special screening at the weekend.

Kevin Costner says Field of Dreams remains a “high mark” in his career 25 years later.

The actor played farmer Ray Kinsella in the classic 1989 baseball film.

The Associated Press reports Kevin returned to the Dyersville, Iowa field where the film was shot with his wife and kids for a special anniversary screening of the beloved sports movie over the weekend.

"I'm glad to be here with friends and old acquaintances and making some new ones, and for my children to be a part of this," Kevin told the crowd. "It's certainly a high mark for me, this little movie, and it remains so."

AP reports acts including Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the Gin Blossoms and Kevin’s own band, Modern West, were among performers at the event, which also featured celebrity softball matches.

The 59-year-old Hollywood star was among those throwing pitches, not long after remarking on the incredible journey his decades-long career has taken him on.

"This fame thing has been an amazing thing in life,” he told Total Film magazine last month.

Kevin also revealed he used to feel like an outsider in his younger days. Even now, it’s baffling for him to accept how his life has turned out.

“I used to take tours - I was the tour bus guide that went to Grauman's Chinese Theater [a cinema on Hollywood Walk of Fame],” he explained. “I'd watched 60 people spill out of the bus and put their hands in the fingerprints and feet... and my feet and hands are there now. So how the mystery of life plays out is one thing, but how everyday life plays out, it's just like it is for everybody."
