Forrest Gump Coming Back to Theaters for Limited Time

Posted by monique On July - 29 - 2014 0 Comment

As Forrest Gump said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Indeed, we didn’t know we were going to get “Forrest Gump” back in the theaters for a limited time!

IMAX Corporation, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Entertainment announced that RObert Zemeckis’ Oscar-winning film “Forrest Gump” will get an exclusive one-week IMAX re-release. The re-release coincides with the 20th anniversary of the film’s original 1994 release. The theatrical re-release starts Sept. 5.

There will also be a special Diamond Luxe Blu-ray release from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Sept. 30. The special edition is packaged in durable and sophisticated collector-style packaging.

“As a ground-breaking achievement in both cinematography and visual effects for its time, ‘Forrest Gump’ has become a modern American movie classic,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to once again collaborate with our longtime friends and partners Bob Zemeckis, Tom Hanks and Paramount. This film deserves a platform like The IMAX Experience® to help make its 20th anniversary one to remember.”

“On behalf of the entire ‘Forrest Gump’ family, it is with great pleasure and pride that we bring ‘Forrest Gump’ back to the big screen using the latest technology for the ultimate IMAX experience,” said producer Wendy Finerman.

The film stars Tom Hanks in one of his most iconic roles as a man who, through amazing circumstances and coincidences, weaves himself through big moments in history. The film also stars Robin Wright, Sally Field and Gary Sinise.

“Originally released in theaters by Paramount Pictures, ‘Forrest Gump’ stars Hanks in the title role, a man who — despite his sub-normal IQ — led an extraordinary life, with a ringside seat to many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century. The award-winning film went on to gross more than $675 million at the global box office, of which nearly $330 million came from North America, making it the highest-grossing film of all time when it was released in 1994.”
