[Upated 8/20/23] Shout! Factory is issuing a 4k UHD upgrade of Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers (1994) on September 26, 2023. The 2-Disc 3-disc Collector’s Edition is part of the Shout Select series and includes a 4k Blu-ray and two 1080p Blu-ray discs.

Note: While the slipcover packaging indicates a 2-disc edition, Shout! Factory’s description of the Collector’s Edition outlines a 3-disc collection with one BD-100 and two BD-50s.

The 4k Blu-ray presents the shorter Director’s Cut (119 min.) of the film from a director-approved transfer of the original negatives. The Blu-rays also present the film from the new director-approved transfers. One Blu-ray houses the Director’s Cut and the other the Theatrical Cut (122 min).

The Director’s Cut was first released in 1996 on VHS and on Blu-ray in 2009 from Warner Bros.

On Ultra HD Blu-ray, Natural Born Killers is presented in 2160p at 1.85:1 (original) aspect ratio with Dolby Vision HDR. The new 4k restoration from the original camera negatives was approved by Director Oliver Stone.

The soundtrack is provided in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (previous Blu-ray editions offered Dolby TrueHD 5.1). Subtitles are provided in English. Both the Theatrical and Director’s Cut edition feature the Nine Inch Nails song “Burn” that was previously removed from both cuts (it is used during news footage).

New bonus feature interviews with crew members are included on the Blu-ray with the Director’s Cut, along with legacy audio commentary and an introduction by Oliver Stone (see details below).

Natural Born Killers was directed by Oliver Stone and stars Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Robert Downey Jr., Tommy Lee Jones, and Tom Sizemore. The film grossed $110 million at the box office on a $34 million budget.

Natural Born Killers (1994) 4k Blu-ray/Blu-ray Collector’s Edition has a list price of $39.98 US. Now $29.99 on Amazon.
