Waiting is the hardest part. This is a consistently true fact, but it doesn't make it easier to swallow. And today, November 4th, 2020, this is a particularly difficult fact. I'm talking about the American publication of, of course The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. In a different timeline, we would have seen this film in theaters this year on Memorial Day weekend. Instead, thanks to something that rhymes with "schomonashmirus," the new SpongeBob movie will hit Netflix tomorrow, November 5th! Great news, right? Well, for most of the world, yes; According to Cartoon Brew, this version only applies to international countries. But for the United States of America and Canada (which actually got the chance to see the movie in theaters this August), we'll have to wait until 2021 to see the thing – and it won't be on Netflix. Ugh, it's especially hard to be American today!

We previously reported that Sponge on the Run will be coming to America in 2021 in a kind of “reversal” Mulan"Location. First, PVOD services for digital rental will be presented before setting up the permanent streaming home on CBS All Access. Sorry, that's Paramount + now. And although the world will get it on Netflix tomorrow (in a deal which, along with Paramount, means part of the financial burden of the film for the streaming studio), the US is still stuck in our PVOD / Paramount + Purgatory. And the director of the film, Tim HillI'm not exactly thrilled about it!

In an interview with Looper, Hill frankly said of his film's strange way of being seen: "It's terrible. I was hoping for a great fanfare and a great premiere and to see all the people I had worked with, and do a cast and crew screening to at least thank people, which never happened. It was exactly what we're doing now like, "Bye. The movie is over. "It sure didn't feel natural." Hill says what many of us cinephiles and filmmakers think: It's difficult to consume things without the feel of a mass audience. We hope Sponge on the Run can make a splash when he finally hits our shoreline.

The SpongeBob movie: Sponge on the Run is coming to Netflix in international territories on November 5, and to PVOD services sometime in 2021, and eventually to Paramount + in the US. For more information about the property, see a trailer from 2019. Easier times …
