Warner has announced the latest addition to its "book"-style catalog releases, bringing Oliver Stone's 'Natural Born Killers' to Blu-ray this June.

Hailed and scorned in equal measure -- and often called one of the most controversial films ever made -- Stone's satire on crime, infamy, and tabloid culture will make its Blu-ray debut on June 10.

Presented in its 118-minute theatrical cut form only (not the unrated version with four minutes of censored footage that was previously released on DVD), tech specs include 1080p/VC-1 video (1.85:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround, along with English, French, and Spanish Dolby Digital and subtitle options.

Among the extras ported over from the studio's previous DVD edition are audio commentary by Stone, a Charlie Rose Show interview with the director, deleted scenes, and the theatrical trailer.

Housed in Warner's "book"-style packaging, also included is a 42-page booklet with rare production photos, press materials, and an original essay by Stone about the film and its controversies.

Warner has set a suggested list price of $28.95 for the Blu-ray.
