Shout! Studios on Dec. 19 will release a special collector’s edition of Oliver Stone’s acclaimed and controversial JFK on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and regular Blu-ray Disc, under the indie film distributor’s Shout! Select brand.

JFK, released theatrically in 1991, examines the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy from the perspective of New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison, who came to believe there was a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy and that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone.

The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won two, for Best Film Editing and Best Cinematography.

JFK boasts a star-studded cast, with Kevin Costner (Dances With Wolves), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Joe Pesci (Goodfellas), Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men), Kevin Bacon (Mystic River), Laurie Metcalf (The Conners), Gary Oldman (The Dark Night), Jack Lemmon (The Apartment), Donald Sutherland (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), Walter Matthau (A New Leaf) and more.

The set comes loaded with special features, including 4K UDH scans of the original negative; audio commentary from the director, producer, and co-writer; deleted and extended scenes; and more. Additionally, fans who pre-order the film from ShoutFactory.com will receive an exclusive 18×24 rolled poster featuring the original theatrical artwork, available while supplies last.

Shout! Factory Slates Blu-ray Disc Set of Oliver Stone Doc ‘JFK Revisited’ Plus Miniseries

Shout! Factory has announced the July 19 release of JFK Revisited: The Complete Collection in a Blu-ray + DVD combo.

The release will include both acclaimed director Oliver Stone’s JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass and the four-part miniseries “JFK: Destiny Betrayed.” Bonus features include a new audio commentary for JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass from Stone and writer James DiEugenio.

The collection marks the first time that both releases will be available on physical media in North America. The JFK Revisited: The Complete Collection Blu-ray + DVD four-disc set is now available for preorder on ShoutFactory.com. Customers ordering from the Shout! Factory website can purchase JFK Revisited: The Complete Collection on its own or with a limited-edition poster autographed by Stone while supplies last.

In the documentary, released last year and based on DiEugenio’s 1992 non-fiction book Destiny Betrayed: JFK, Cuba, and the Garrison Case, Stone takes viewers on a journey through recently declassified evidence in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The film premiered on July 12, 2021 in the Cannes Premiere section at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. Speaking with Variety, Stone described it as “an important bookend to my 1991 film. It ties up many loose threads, and hopefully repudiates much of the ignorance around the case and the movie.”  The film is narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland.

“During the many concert sequences, the sound now fills the auditorium above the audience, behind it, and all points in between,” said director Oliver Stone. “I wanted the film to be as immersive as possible to a real ‘60s Doors experience.”

Stone also cut three minutes from a scene he said was superfluous to the ending, “which helps close out the film in a more powerful way.”

Bonus materials include new interviews with Stone and sound engineer Lon Bender, and an audio commentary with Stone.
