Watch ‘The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water’ Trailer


The first trailer for the SpongeBob movie Sponge Out of Water was released today, and it’s a real winner. The trailer is packed with goofy dumb humor (in the best way possible), and the mixed-media approach looks to be very smartly done from a filmmaking standpoint. Directed by Paul Tibbitt (with live-action sequences directed by Mike Mitchell), Sponge Out of Water will debut in the US on February 6, 2015.

    I’m really surprised with how well they kept the art style intact in 3D. I’m glad it isn’t horribly cel-shaded like previous attempts.

  • Roberto Severino

    What can I say? The 2D animation looks great and definitely a lot more cartoony than how the show is as of currently, the CG is better than I was expecting, there were even some funny moments and the whole story shows great promise. Everything that I wanted this movie to be and more and I frankly can’t wait to see it next year!

  • Tyron Johnson

    After reading about peoples reactions after the trailer ended at Comic Con on another site and seeing the first live action pic released to the public, I was expecting the worst. I was actually very entertained, had a smile on my face from being to end and I laughed many times. I’m now anticipating this movie.

    • I agree. It seems they saved the best for last just to surprise us all.

  • Raspyberry

    Seems to retain spirit of the first one, while still updating the look

  • jordan reichek

    wow, does that look fantastic. great job!

  • Platynews

    Is it just me or the CGI looks more … cartoony than the 2D ?

  • Steven Bowser

    Looks legitimately funny, like the first one was. I suspect that this is going to be a swan song of the series. Although that’s what I thought LAST time.

  • George Comerci

    I think it looks great! :D

  • Havent watched the show since middle school but I’m really excited! the 3D looks so great! For some reason, I missed seeing the 1st movie in theaters and regretted it- It’s so funny! Won’t make that mistake again.

  • Trunkfist

    Whoa, some really hawt looking 3d work in this!!!

  • It’s gonna be awesome :)

  • John Pannozzi

    Not bad, but am I the only one who thinks the 2D animation looks more limited than it in did the first SpongeBob movie from ten years ago?

    • Trev

      I’m pretty sure it’s cause it was made in flash this time, I noticed it too. Wish they kept the old movie style but it still looks better than the show does now.

      • Nick D.

        Flash? Yeah.. I’m not buyin’ it.

    • ThatGuy

      you’re not the only one. it seems far less inbetweened

  • tom bancroft

    Just awesome! That’s 3D that works too!

  • Trev

    Nah I think they changed it from the 13th to the 6th if I remember correctly

  • ThatGuy

    The 3D actually works.

  • Scrap Doodle

    I thought it was pretty funny up until they went on land. I’m surprised actually, as it is legitimately funny, unlike the newer episodes.

  • I like the look for the movie. I admit I was a little scared when I saw the original promotional pics, but it actually looks pretty good! My one complaint is that the trailer is one of those “let’s tell them the entire plot of the film in two minutes” ones. Which I hate. But that’s not a problem with the actual film.
