First Look: 'SpongeBob' Becomes a Live-Action Superhero in Sequel

July 25, 2014

SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water

During the Paramount Pictures panel at Comic-Con, where Christopher Nolan made his Hall H debut with Interstellar, we were also given a first look at a film on the completely opposite end of the spectrum: SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water. While this isn't a film we're particularly excited about, the footage shown at Comic-Con was so weird, even by normal "SpongeBob SquarePants" standards. SpongeBob and his friends end up heading into the real world, but in the form of Avengers style superheroes. But they're in a very lifelike computer animated form, and it makes for a strange aesthetic.

Here's the first photo from SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water from Paramount:

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is directed by Paul Tibbit (writer and producer of the "SpongeBob SquarePants" animated series) and written by Kung Fu Panda 2 writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. In the film, SpongeBob SquarePants, the world's favorite sea dwelling invertebrate, comes ashore to our world for his most super-heroic adventure yet. Tom Kenny will reprise his voice role as the titular character, and is joined by Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass and many more. Paramount Pictures will release the sequel in 3D in theaters everywhere next year on February 6th, 2015.

I really actually like Spongebob and I'm sure this will be funny but what the actual fuck???

Careful with the language now, I think a lot of the younger target audience who watches the show would most likely scroll to the comments below.

Tom Kenny will be joined by Tom Kenny? Huh. Well, it's a SpongeBob film after all, so I guess this kind of weirdness is to be expected...

I don't know weather to be impressed or worried that you know that lol. Anyway I'm sure I'll be taking the kids to see it.

This movie looks AMAZING! From the first picture you definitely see it's embracing the true Spongebob spirit, just being flat out weird and whacky! I think this is the type of weirdness and unexpectedness that Spongebob needed and I can't wait for this!

Um...da fuck??
