Taylor Hackford's 1982 romance will sweep Blu-ray off its feet in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner brothers is working on 'An Officer and a Gentleman' for Blu-ray on May 17.

Once in a great while a movie comes along that truly grips and uplifts its audiences. Such a movie is An Officer And A Gentleman, a timeless tale of romance, friendship and growth. Loner Zack Mayo (Richard Gere) enters Officer Candidate School to become a Navy pilot and in thirteen tortuous weeks he learns the importance of discipline, love and friendship. Louis Gossett, Jr. won an Academy Award* for his brilliant 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. 'An Officer and a Gentleman' is a rich and satisfying story with moving performances that will stay with you long after the film has ended.
