After helming horror movies like Seizure and The Hand, Oliver Stone became the political filmmaker we now know him as with 1986's Salvador, which starred James Woods as a cynical journalist covering the atrocities of the Salvadoran civil war.

Eureka Entertainment are bringing Salvador to UK blu-ray for the first time when it joins their Masters of Cinema collection on September 17th.

Special features include a commentary by Stone; archival interviews with the director; deleted and extended scenes; an hour-long 'making of'; and a collector's booklet.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.

In 1980, young men, women and children are being brutally killed in a bloody civil war in El Salvador. A horrific setting, but a perfect one for Richard Boyle (James Woods in an Oscar nominated role), a sleazy journalist whose career needs a jump start. Armed with his camera, Boyle joins the front lines in an attempt to capture atrocious-but-valuable images of pain and horror. But with each picture he takes, he catches a tragic side of humanity that ignites his long-buried compassion. And he unexpectedly discovers something that will change him forever: his soul.
