After stealing the hearts and minds of audiences everywhere, Paramount and Warner Bros. have teamed up with IMAX® to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Forrest Gump with a special exclusive one-week IMAX engagement on Sept. 5.
We’re thrilled to collaborate with our longtime friends and partners Bob Zemeckis, Tom Hanks and Paramount to re-release this film - ground-breaking achievement in both cinematography and visual effects- for the first time in IMAX theatres in North America. Forrest Gump has become a modern American movie classic
Forrest Gump, which won six Academy Awards including Best Actor (Tom Hanks) and Best Director, will also receive a special Diamond Luxe Blu-ray release from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment September 30. The Diamond Luxe edition features a new sleek and durable collector-style packaging, with a state-of-the-art sophisticated design.
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.
The film also stars Robin Wright, Sally Field and Gary Sinise in his Oscar-nominated role as the cantankerous Lieutenant Dan.
