FINALLY on Blu-ray… Spike Lee’s Malcolm X.
Several months back, Sergio announced that it was coming; and now it’s here!
Originally scheduled to come out in January 2011, the release was pushed back due to some music rights clearance issues, which have apparently now been resolved.
Priced at about $30, the 2-disc Blu-ray set includes a few extras like:
– Commentary with Spike Lee, cinematographer Ernest Dickerson, editor Barry Alexander Brown, and costume designer Ruth Carter
– By Any Means Necessary: The Making of Malcolm X documentary
– Deleted scenes with introduction by Spike Lee
– Bonus DVD – 1972’s Academy Award-nominated documentary Malcolm X
– 40-page book containing production photos from and information on the film, which starred Denzel Washington as Malcolm X.
So, pretty much the same extras you’d get on the 2-disc DVD.
I’ve already ordered my copy. You can do the same HERE.
