“Fahrenheit 9/11,” Michael Moore’s documentary lambasting President Bush and the war in Iraq will be released on DVD on Oct. 5, its distributor said Monday.

Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment, a unit of Sony Corp., said the DVD will sell for $28.95 and include deleted scenes as well as testimony by U.S. National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice before the 9/11 Commission and a press conference by President Bush after his appearance before the commission.

Released in late June, “Fahrenheit 9/11” has shattered the box-office record for a regular-format documentary, grossing more than $115 million to date.

Even before its release, the film stirred a controversy. Miramax heads Bob and Harvey Weinstein backed the film against the wishes of corporate parent Walt Disney Co. They eventually bought the rights from Disney and set up a separate company to distribute the film.
