The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run Clip Features a Poseidon-Sized Meltdown

At long last, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run has finally arrived. The first-ever CGI SpongeBob movie was supposed to debut back in 2020, but the pandemic caused it to be pushed to 2021. Paramount and Nickelodeon then made the decision to make it a streaming release, using the power of the sponge to launch the Paramount+ streaming service (formerly known as CBS All Access). Thursday morning, Paramount+ went live, meaning that Sponge on the Run would be available to stream for free on the service, in addition to its availability on PVOD platforms.

To celebrate the film's release, has a brand new clip from Sponge on the Run that we are delighted to share exclusively with you. This clip featured Poseidon, the antagonist of SpongeBob's latest adventure, as he goes through a bit of a crisis. Poseidon, obsessed with his image, notices that he may have a wrinkle beneath his eye. A total meltdown ensues. You can take a look at the clip above.

Matt Berry, star of FX's What We Do in the Shadows, lends his voice to Poseidon in Sponge on the Run. The other character in the clip, Chancellor, is voiced by beloved comedian Reggie Watts.
