See What It Would Look Like if Wes Anderson Directed 'Forrest Gump'

See What It Would Look Like if Wes Anderson Directed 'Forrest Gump'

Apr 24, 2014


This one goes out to all the Wes Anderson-obsessed nostalgia nuts who wish life was like a box of chocolates — but only the artisanal kind from Brooklyn, hand packed in a box à la 1965. Video-maker Louis Paquet re-created the opening credits for the 1994 film Forrest Gump, about a naive Alabamian whose life surprisingly helped define 20th-century history, in the style of Wes Anderson.

It’s a faithful remix, right down to the credits font and music — courtesy of the great Mark Mothersbaugh, who has scored a number of Anderson features. The vintage-friendly vignettes portray aspects of Gump’s life, right down to the Ping-Pong tournament and the shrimping boat (The Life Aquatic with Forrest Gump, clearly). Get your object-fetish fix by watching the two-minute adaptation and start pining for the next Wes Anderson movie — because even though The Grand Budapest Hotel just came out, another film is still too far away.
