Oliver Stone's 'JFK' Returns to Theaters 50 Years After Assassination
The mystery, conspiracy and obsessions with the assassination of the late president John F. Kennedy hasn't subsided, and this November, 50 years will have passed since his death. The film Parkland, which focuses on the event from several different perspectives, hits limited theaters this weekend, but a film about the assassination from 22 years ago will also be coming to theaters this fall. Warner Bros. will bring Oliver Stone's 1991 film JFK back to the big screen in November a couple weeks before the actual 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death on November 22nd, 1963, and there's a new Blu-Ray box set coming too.
Stone's film takes one of the conspiracy angles on the film and tells the story the director believes lies behind the killing of one of our nation's most beloved leaders. The re-release will begin in New York, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. from November 6th - 14th. Then 250+ theaters in chains such as Cinemark, Regal and AMC Theatres will get the film from November 17th - 20th. Meanwhile, Oliver Stone points out on Twitter (via The Film Stage) that a new Blu-Ray collector's set will arrive on November 12th with a new chapter of The Untold History of the United States. Whether you believe the conspiracy or not, the film is quite the fantastic thriller, and ripe for a revisit.
