Bogey, Cagney, Scorsese and Malcolm X are all coming to DVD early next year.
Warner Home Video is releasing a special edition of “Malcolm X,” and MGM is releasing “The Martin Scorsese Film Collection” on Feb. 8. Those releases will be preceded Jan. 25 by a collection of first-time DVD releases of six digitally remastered Warner gangster movies from the 1930s and 1940s.
The two-disc special edition of “Malcolm X” ($26.99), starring Denzel Washington, includes an audio commentary by director Spike Lee, additional scenes, two new making-of documentaries and the 1972 Oscar-nominated feature-length “Malcolm X” doc.
Scorsese’s “Raging Bull,” coming to DVD as a two-disc special edition on the 25th anniversary of the Oscar winner’s theatrical release, highlights MGM’s collection of four of the filmmaker’s movies. The others are “New York, New York,” “The Last Waltz” and “Boxcar Bertha.” Bonus features on “Raging Bull” include five making-of featurettes and three separate audio commentaries featuring Scorsese, Jake LaMotta and writer Paul Schrader.
The collection is priced at $49.96, with “Raging Bull” available separately for $29.98 and the others for $14.95 each.
The six-disc “Warner Bros. Pictures Gangsters Collection” includes four James Cagney movies: “The Public Enemy,” “White Heat,” “Angels With Dirty Faces” and “The Roaring Twenties,” the latter of which co-stars Humphrey Bogart.
