Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X” is set to unspool on VCRs July 21 via Warner Bros.
The hotly debated epic chronicling the life of the assassinated civil-rights figure was nominated for two Academy Awards, and the studio estimates it will have grossed more than $ 50 million in domestic B.O. by the video release date.
The film took in nearly $ 10 million during its 1,250-screen opening weekend, earning a per-screen average of $ 8,782. Late Monday, Warner Home Video reps were unable to say how many copies would be shipped, or if “X” would be a sell-through.
