When Oliver Stone's "JFK" dropped over two decades ago (damn, has it been that long?), it created nothing short of an explosion both at the multiplex and the pop cultural sphere in general. A box office hit, earning over $200 million worldwide, and an awards season player (eight Oscar nominations, and two wins for Editing and Cinematography), it was also highly controversial and stirred up a conversation about the assassination of the president that hadn't been had in ages. And now you can live that experience all over again.

JFK

When Oliver Stone's "JFK" dropped over two decades ago (damn, has it been that long?), it created nothing short of an explosion both at the multiplex and the pop cultural sphere in general. A box office hit, earning over $200 million worldwide, and an awards season player (eight Oscar nominations, and two wins for Editing and Cinematography), it was also highly controversial and stirred up a conversation about the assassination of the president that hadn't been had in ages. And now you can live that experience all over again.

Stone took to Twitter to reveal that Warner Bros. is planning a theatrical re-release of "JFK"  in New York, Los Angeles, and DC, where it will run from November 6th to November 14th (November 22nd marks the 50th anniversary of JFK's death). Meanwhile, 250 or so Cinemark, Regal, and AMC theaters will screen the movie from November 17th to November 20th. And not to worry if the film isn't screening near you. "JFK" will also be hitting Blu-ray on November 12th, with a new bonus feature: chapter six of Stone's "Untold History" documentary series focusing on the event.

Not bad. If somehow you've never seen the movie, here's a bonanza of stuff for you: a vintage review from "Siskel & Ebert," plus seven clips from the movie which give you a good sense of the palpable hysteria, conspiracy making and more the movie dredges up. As a piece historical cinema, "JFK" is problematic, but as historical entertainment? It's undeniable. Watch below. [Variety]
