‘Forrest Gump’ To Get 20th Anniversary Re-Release In IMAX
  |  @   |  

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Forrest Gump, so in celebration, the film will be re-released in IMAX for one week only this September.

The Paramount Pictures film, originally released in theaters on July 6, 1994, won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for star Tom Hanks (who played the titular character) and Best Director for Robert Zemeckis.

The IMAX one-week theater run will begin on September 5, 2014. This is the first time the movie will be seen in IMAX in North America.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the film in a special Diamond Luxe 20th Anniversary Blu-ray with collector-style packaging on September 30, 2014.

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.
