'Malcolm X' Blu-ray Dated Again

Posted Tue Oct 11, 2011 at 11:00 AM PDT by

After a year of delays, the Spike Lee joint is finally coming to Blu-ray in January.

As previously reported, Warner Brothers delayed 'Malcolm X' on Blu-ray due to an issue with music rights, but now it seems those problems are resolved and the new release date is January 31.

'Malcolm X' was nominated for two Academy Awards including Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Leading Role for Denzel Washington.

The release will be a digibook with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: 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; trailer; and a bonus DVD - 1972's Academy Award-nominated documentary Malcolm X.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.99.
