Forrest Gump, and the big battles behind a monster hit

9 May 2017 2:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 15, 2017

Forrest Gump was a huge hit - but it's worth remembering just what a massive, massive gamble it was. Here's just a slice of that story...

Few major Hollywood blockbusters of the 1990s can lay claim to being some kind of cultural phenomenon, but surely Forrest Gump can. Love or loathe the film, its dialogue has slipped into everyday language, it’s inspired a spin-off bunch of restaurants, and it’s one of the top grossing films of the decade. Oh, and it won a bunch of Oscars, including a second consecutive Best Actor win for Tom Hanks.

It’s often said that the most successful films, though, have tumultuous behind the scene stories. I remember when Richard Donner directed Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas in Assassins (based on a heavily butchered script by the pre-Matrix Wachowskis), and it was widely reported that the shoot was a calm and very pleasurable one. »
