A deluxe collector's edition of Oliver Stone's award-winning drama is now available for pre-order at Amazon.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers' 'JFK: Ultimate Collector's Editionis planned for Blu-ray in the near future.

JFK chronicles the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy led by New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner), a man who adamantly believes the "lone gunman" theory is a fraud and that Lee Harvey Oswald (Gary 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.
