'Forrest Gump' to return to theaters for 20th anniversary

Forrest Gump

(Phillip Caruso)

Twenty years have passed since Forrest Gump first sat on that bench and told us that life is like a box of chocolates, but now he’s coming back to the screen for a rerelease celebrating the anniversary of the movie’s 1994 release.

Forrest Gump first hit theaters in July 1994 and soon became an all-around hit: It won the Best Picture Oscar that year (and was nominated for a total of 13 Academy Awards) and was a box-office success, beating out that summer’s other smash, The Lion King.

Paramount will release Forrest Gump in IMAX theaters Sept. 5, a representative confirmed to EW.
