Spongebob wins in Box Office (on the back of its Online Game/ Online Campaign, and Victoria Justice’s return)


17 years, two movies. Both made gang busters in the box office.

You have to start considering Spongebob as one of the better animated series of its era.

With its very strong online campaign, and Victoria Justice’s second chance after her issues/rivalry between her and her former co-stars (Grande and the rumors of partying on the set of Icarly) It was just right.

It beat out Jupiter Ascending, which was delayed from Summer 2014. Again the VFX monies for the movie was very high, and it seems the losses may never be recouped.

In other interesting news – even though it didn’t do as well in the states – the Padditon Movie has gotten $208 Million making it a hit worldwide.

Giving new life to the family franchise, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water soaked up $56 million from 3,641 theaters in its North American debut, one of the best debuts ever in the month of February. Directed by Mike Mitchell and Paul Tibbitt, the new SpongeBob feature was produced with a budget of $74 million. The first SpongeBob movie, which was released in 2004, was made for $30 million and opened to $32 million before going on to make a total of $85.4 million domestically and $140.2 million worldwide.

Overseas, the Paramount and Nickelodeon Movies sequel is doing five times more business than the first film, grossing $26.8 million to date from 25 territories—including $11.1 million in Mexico—for an early worldwide total of $82.8 million.
