A 4K restoration of Sid & Nancy will be released August 22nd by Criterion Collection. Directed by Alex Cox, the cult classic tells the story of Sex Pistols' bassist Sid Vicious & his doomed tumultuous relationship with girlfriend Nancy Spungen. The sex and drugs and punk rock biopic stars Gary Oldman as Sid and Chloe Webb as Nancy (Courtney Love famously has a minor role as Spungen's friend Gretchen). The Sid & Nancy soundtrack is also legendary -- it includes the alternative staple "Love Kills" by Joe Strummer, along with classic tracks from The Pogues, Circle Jerks, and Oldman's version of "My Way" which all too often gets mistaken for Vicious' original by unsuspecting ears.

The restored edition of Sid & Nancy will be available as a 2DVD set or as a 1 disc Blu-ray. The director-approved special edition Blu-ray will feature a ton of exciting bonus material: the uncompressed stereo soundtrack, alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack, two audio commentaries (including commentary from the filmmakers, cultural historians, actors, etc), archival footage and interviews including a rare telephone interview with Vicious, a 1987 documentary on the making of Sid & Nancy, and more.
