First up, YouTuber OneBeatMan recreated the trailer for Top Gun: Maverick by using LEGO stop-motion and computer animation.

While the rest of the world gets to see the new SpongeBob movie on Netflix today, the beloved talking sponge is on the run far away from the U.S. and Canada. Paramount Animation’s The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run hits Netflix today, November 5, in all countries except for the U.S. and Canada, with Americans having to wait until next year when The SpongeBob Movie hits the States…on premium VOD.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run is the latest big studio pic to skip theaters entirely and head directly to digital. But there’s a twist! Instead of arriving this year, which would seem to make the most sense, Sponge on the Run won’t arrive until 2021. The movie was originally set to open in theaters next month before being pushed to August, but now it’ll skip theaters – and 2020 – entirely.
Another day, another group of films being pushed off their planned release dates. As we all wait around for the end of the coronavirus pandemic, studios are trying to figure out what the hell to do with their upcoming movies. The summer movie season has all but been obliterated, and today, Paramount shuffled two of their intended summer releases: The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, andInfinite.

If anyone knows about going on an arduous journey after losing something they love, it’s Keanu Reeves.

Yes, the newest SpongeBob movie is basically a feature film version of that episode where Gary ran away, but listen, Keanu Reeves is here. That’s all you need to be excited for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. Watch The SpongeBob Movie Sponge on the Run trailer below.
