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

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.

Naomi Watts and Robin Wright play two mothers who 'Adore' their sons -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

adore

With a title like Adore, this movie with Naomi Watts and Robin Wright might be about anything. But when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, it was known by another, much more provocative title, Two Mothers, that boldly announced its raison d’être. Watts and Wright play lifelong best friends who grow up and raise children near each other on an Australian beachfront paradise. Their hunky sons (Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville) are best friends too, spending their idle summer days on surfboards and working on their tans. They’re not your typical momma’s boys… well, until they romantically pair up with each other’s mother.

This is not a Saturday Night Live, Lonely Island sketch; it’s a very sensual, very French drama from director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Channel) and screenwriter Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons) that is based on a 2003 novella from an 85-year-old grandmother, British author Doris Lessing. “I thought it was powerful that there was no answer at the end,” Fontaine said in January. “Each one can think what they want to think. No morality.”

'Two Mothers' trailer: Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are (insert cougar joke here) -- VIDEO

Robin Wright and Naomi Watts star in Two Mothers as friends who each start a sexual relationship with the other’s son.

The joke has been made before, and it will be made again, but it’s hard to watch the trailer without humming a verse from SNL‘s  “Motherlover.”

Watch the NSFW (two butts, also a lot of dramatic music over tender lovemaking) trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2013: Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are 'Two Mothers' with a sexy secret

“Qu’est-ce que c’est ‘cougar’?”

French director Anne Fontaine wasn’t familiar with the English term for mature women who prefer much younger men — nor was she aware of the Saturday Night Live sketch, “Motherlover” —  but with Two Mothers, she’s melting the snow at the Sundance Film Festival with a love story — “Not a sex story,” she says — about two Australian best friends who fall hard for each other’s teenage sons and form an unconventional quartet.

Close neighbors in an idyllic beach paradise, Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) have been best pals since they were girls. They do everything together – making Roz’s husband (The Dark Knight’s Ben Mendelsohn) feel like an interloper in his own home  — and their sons are practically brothers. In the final summer before the boys head off to college, the unspeakable happens when Lil’s son Ian (Xavier Samuel) kisses Roz and she doesn’t stop him from going further. When her son, Tom (James Frecheville), catches them together, he feels compelled to act on his own hormones with Lil.

“I had never read anything like it,” says Watts. “And I loved how I went from a place of quickly judging them to almost instantly forgiving them, and more than that, willing it to happen and to continue. And the question comes up later, and the ‘Oh my God and we have to end this.’ But it’s too good, and that just felt very human to me.” READ FULL STORY
