JFK: Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray

Posted July 29, 2013 11:37 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment is reissuing JFK in a 4-disc Ultimate Collector's Edition box set that includes a 44-page photo book and other numerous collectibles. Director Oliver Stone's controversial Academy Award-winning drama stars Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Joe Pesci, Laurie Metcalf, Gary Oldman and Michael Rooker. The Ultimate Collector's Edition is set to arrive later this year and is already available for pre-order.

Synopsis: JFK chronicles the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy led by New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Costner), a man who adamantly believes the "lone gunman" theory is a fraud and that Lee Harvey Oswald (Oldman) was nothing more than a patsy. Garrison encounters insurmountable obstacle after obstacle as he moves closer and closer to the truth, all the while working to prove the assassination was carried out by a ring of conspirators.

The 4-disc Ultimate Collector's Edition release of JFK features:

  • Disc 1 (BD) - JFK: Director's Cut
    • Audio Commentary with Director Oliver Stone
    • Feature-Length Documentary: Beyond JFK: The Question of Conspiracy
    • Deleted and Extended Scenes
    • Alternate Ending
  • Disc 2 (DVD) - Feature Film, PT 109 (DVD)
  • Disc 3 (DVD) - All-New Documentary, JFK Remembered: 50 Years Later (DVD)
  • Disc 4 (DVD) - Remastered 1964 Documentary, John F. Kennedy: Years of Lightning, Day of Drums
Collectibles and reproductions include:

  • 44-Page Hardcover Movie Photo Book
  • 32-Page Hardcover JFK Quotations Book
  • 6 Character Cards Featuring the Film's Actors
  • Inaugural Address Reproduction (10.5" x 14.5")
  • Campaign Poster Reproduction (14.5" x 21")
  • 20 Photos and 16 Pieces of Correspondence Reproduced Courtesy of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

Great release. Warner really pulled out all the stops here.

Hopefully (though there's No Mention of it above) they'll do Something with the PQ & AQ, which received just a 3.5/5 (PQ) & 3/5 (AQ) in the JFK Review on this site. If not, what's the point of a reissue

@Aerodude73 - Why $$$$$ of course...

Seriously Warner? For your "Ultimate" edition we get 3 standard dvds of extras? BD's advanced interactivity and Java platform benefit the extras maybe even more than the movie. Considering the first dvd also includes the movie, all this appears to be is the exhisting BD packaged with the existing, 5 yr old "Ultimate" 3-disc dvd set with some additional swag. At least the price is reasonable, if only further indication of the utter lack of effort Warner seems to think their property, and the fans thereof deserve.

It's missing Special Features from the original BD.

I remember when I was a kid and saw the poster of the film, I thought it was a Superman movie

If there was some mention of a remaster, this would be good news.

In a word: $$$-Overkill-$$$.

There are far, far better movies in Warner Brothers catalog that deserve an "Ultimate" release...

I'll stick with my $12 digibook.

I already have the "normal" blu-ray, but since "jfk" is my favorite movie and i always wanted to have the digibook in my collection, this is a no brainer. at least it looks like it is indeed the digibook which is OOP now.

love all the discs, but could do without all of the print extras, just take up room on my shelf. i'd like to get rid of my dvd though. maybe we'll get lucky and get a release without all the print extras.

Won't get this right away but after a few months when it's down to around $25 it'll be mind.

My mom had the collector's edition on VHS. I'll wait for the "Magic Bullet Edition" or a respectable release of Goodfellas. Whichever comes first.
