The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run Comes to Theatres This August

While many movies have been delayed by the current health crisis, a handful of movies that were ready to hit theatres this year have instead become streaming offerings instead. The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, originally scheduled to hit theatres on May 22, 2020, looked to be taking that approach, but now it’s been revealed that it will play in theatres after all.

Over a month ago, it was reported that the Spongebob movie — the third one based on the hit Nickelodeon series, was dropping its theatrical release in favour of at home streaming, however Paramount Pictures Canada has announced that Sponge on the Run will play in Canadian theatres starting August 14. Fans in the United States, however, will still have to wait for the threequel to hit VOD next year in order to watch it.

After SpongeBob's beloved pet snail Gary is snail-napped, he and Patrick embark on an epic adventure to The Lost City of Atlantic City to bring Gary home. The film features Awkwafina, Keanu Reeves, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, and is directed by Tim Hill.
