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.
