This Spring, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is bringing director Taylor Hackford's An Officer and a Gentleman to Blu-ray. The classic romantic drama stars Richard Gere, Debra Winger and Louis Gossett, Jr., and streets on May 17th.
Synopsis: Loner Zack Mayo (Gere) enters Officer Candidate School to become a Navy pilot, and, in just thirteen tortuous weeks, learns the importance of discipline, love and friendship. Louis Gossett, Jr. won an Academy Award for his portrayal of the tough drill instructor who teaches Zack that no man can make it alone. And while Gossett tries to warn the young officer about the local girls who will do anything to catch themselves pilot husbands, Zack eventually learns to love one (Debra Winger) while his fellow candidate, a memorable character portrayed by David Keith, struggles with a very different fate.
Exact tech specs and extras have yet to be revealed.
Is this title never released before on bluray? So this would be the first film that Warner released from their Paramount deal that gets a blu. This is great news because of all the possibilities of films to come. Keep it up Warner Bros.
HAHA, I just love covers that completely ruin the ending of a film. Rudy, with his being carried off the field. Close Encounters, with the mothership hovering over Devil's Tower. Now this. What we really need is a Fight Club cover with Pitt and Norton standing there, both wearing "Tyler Durden" name tags. lol
Glad we are starting to see the previously unreleased Paramount Titles, WB aquired for bluray distribution now get release dates.
cant wait to own this and run away bride. fingers crossed some of those Friday the 13th blus get announced soon to.
@DanFan - Well, considering he's wearing his Naval Whites and he spends the entire film in training, and that he's carrying the girl he courts for the entire thing, I'd say anyone with any sense would know that was from the end within the first ten minutes of the film. lol
@dmarvin - HAHA, that'd be classic! Maybe a version of "Seven" with Mills shooting Doe, called "Head In A Box Edition". I love that my original post has actually been voted down (evidently by people who genuinely thought I was being serious)...lol...humor wasted.
