Spike Lee’s towering 1992 movie Malcolm X is finally coming to the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format in the UK: more details here.

Appreciating it’s already available on the format elsewhere in the world. Spike Lee’s 1992 biopic Malcolm X has now been confirmed for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release in the UK for the first time.

The film will be coming to the 4K format in the UK on 15th July 2024, and you can find more information on the release – and buy a copy – right here.

If you’ve not had the considerable pleasure, Denzel Washington takes on the role of Malcolm X in the hugely ambitious films. The synopsis for the movie – and the new 4K release – reads as follows…

Released for the first time in the UK in stunning 4K Ultra HD, experience this sweeping biographical epic like never before, with 30 minutes of deleted scenes and a limited edition poster and art card set. Denzel Washington stars in a career-best performance as Malcolm X, one of the most charismatic and divisive political voices in American history. From poverty to prominence, from hustler to humanist, Malcolm X and his ideologies touched the lives of millions and continue to inspire and enlighten. The complex life of this endlessly fascinating civil rights leader is traced in magnificent detail, held together by the vision of director Spike Lee, who masterfully combines historical and contemporary perspectives to create one of the most ambitious, expansive, and acclaimed biographical dramas of all time.

Personally, I was in my teens when I made a special trip to see the film on the big screen, and can still remember it now. I’m looking forward to catching up with it in 4K.

There’s no Blu-ray in the box, so it’s unclear what if any extra features will be included in the set. But the 4K disc alone is going to be worth checking out. It’s up for pre-order now.
