The score was composed by James Newton Howard, conducted by Marty Paich with The Hollywood Recording Musicians Orchestra and released by Warner Bros. Records in 1994. It was later re-released in 2013 in an expanded edition by La-La Land.
Wyatt Earp, released six months after Tombstone, grossed $56 million on a $63 million budget, compared to Tombstone s $73 million gross on a $25 million budget. The film opened at number 4 at the US box office, grossing $7.5 million in its first week. It grossed $25 million in the United States and Canada, compared to Tombstone s $56 milion. Internationally, Wyatt Earp was more successful grossing $31 million, compared to Tombstone s $17 million, but this was not enough to recoup its budget, making it a box office bomb.
Wyatt Earp received mixed to negative reviews from critics. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes retrospectively gives the film a rotten score of 32%, based on 78 reviews, with an average rating of 5.4/10. The site s consensus states: Easy to admire yet difficult to love, Wyatt Earp buries eye-catching direction and an impressive cast in an undisciplined and overlong story. On Metacritic, the film has a score of 47 out of 100 based on 20 reviews, indicating “mixed or average reviews.” Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 2 out of 4 stars, saying Wyatt Earp plays as if they took Tombstone and pumped it full of hot air. It involves many of the same characters and much of the same story, but little of the tension and drama. It s a rambling, unfocused biography of Wyatt Earp (Kevin Costner), starting when he s a kid and following his development from an awkward would-be lawyer into a slick gunslinger. This is a long journey, in a three-hour film that needs better pacing.
Todd McCarthy of Variety praised the cast and production values, but remarked, If you re going to ask an audience to sit through a three-hour, nine-minute rendition of an oft-told story, it would help to have a strong point of view on your material and an urgent reason to relate it. Such is not the case with Wyatt Earp. Similarly, Caryn James of The New York Times complimented the film s ambition and effort to portray a more human Wyatt, but still felt that the film s literal-minded approach to the hero s dark soul is one of its terrible problems. Wyatt Earp labors to turn this mythic figure into a complex man; instead it makes him a cardboard cutout and his story a creepingly slow one.
Audiences surveyed by CinemaScore gave the film a grade B+ on scale of A to F.

Wyatt Earp is a 1994 American biographical Western drama film directed, produced, and co-written by Lawrence Kasdan, with Dan Gordon. The film covers the lawman of the same name s life, from an Iowa farmboy, to a feared marshal, to the feud in Tombstone, Arizona that led to the O.K. Corral gunfight. Starring Kevin Costner in the title role, it features an ensemble supporting cast that includes Gene Hackman, Mark Harmon, Michael Madsen, Bill Pullman, Dennis Quaid, Isabella Rossellini, Tom Sizemore, JoBeth Williams, Mare Winningham and Jim Caviezel in one of his earliest roles.
The film was released a mere six months after the similar Tombstone, and received mixed reviews, critical of the film s length and plot but praising its production values. Unlike Tombstone, it was a box office failure.
