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.
