It’s been two decades since Spike Lee released his powerful biopic Malcolm X, starring Denzel Washington in a spot on, Oscar-nominated role as the late civil rights leader. For the 20th anniversary, and just in time for Black History Month, the film is on Blu-ray and DVD this week, loaded with new bonus features, including the exclusive unreleased clip we have above.
The Blu-ray includes The Making of Malcolm X, a 30-minute documentary that features commentary from Lee (who directed, produced, wrote the screen play and acted in the film). The crew and Lee detail stories from creating the film, including Lee having to call on prominent African-American names like Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby and Michael Jordan to get funding to finish the film.
Other Blue-ray features include a 40-page digi-book that details the film from scene to scene, nine deleted scenes and actor bios. Viewers also get the 1972 documentary Malcolm X on DVD, written by Arnold Perl and based on The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley.
