Warner Bros. to Re-Release ‘JFK’ in Theaters and on Blu-ray

More than two decades later, Oliver Stone’s controversial political thriller “JFK” is still generating buzz.

The director tweeted Thursday that the 1991 film, which starred Kevin Costner and followed the events leading up to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the subsequent alleged cover-up, will see a theatrical and Blu-ray re-release in November.

“WB is re-releasing ‘JFK’ theatrically in NY, LA, and DC 11/6–11/14. Also, at some 250+ Cinemark, Regal, and AMC theaters on 11/17 and 11/20,” Stone tweeted.

‘WB is also re-releasing ‘JFK’ on BR in a new box set on 11/12,” he added. “Included is something I think makes a difference—Ch 6 of ‘Untold History.’”

He went on to explain that the unreleased chapter isn’t exactly about the assassination, but “the big picture,” why Kennedy may have been killed and the following events.

Coincidentally, the announcement comes a day after Stone and “JFK’s” co-writer Zachary Sklar penned an op-ed in the Chicago Tribune in response to another op-ed in the paper that alleged that the film was full of “distortions and outright falsehoods.”

“JFK” is no stranger to criticism. Upon its release in 1991, several media outlets accused the film of taking creative liberties with the facts and distorting history.

However, “JFK” did well both critically and commercially, grossing $205 million worldwide and winning two Academy Awards.
