The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is a 2015 American animated/live action adventure comedy film, based on the Nickelodeon television series SpongeBob SquarePants, created by Stephen Hillenburg. Released in 2015, the film is a stand-alone sequel to the 2004 animated film The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. It is directed by the show writer and executive producer Paul Tibbitt, and written by Tibbitt, Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, and SpongeBob creator and executive producer Stephen Hillenburg. Sponge Out of Water is executive produced by Stephen Hillenburg, and co-executive produced by Cale Boyter, Nan Morales, and Craig Sost. The film stars the regular television cast (Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Rodger Bumpass, Clancy Brown, Carolyn Lawrence, and Mr. Lawrence), who returned to reprise their respective roles from the series and the previous film, while Antonio Banderas plays a new live-action character, Burger-Beard the Pirate. The film is produced by Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon Movies, and United Plankton Pictures, and was distributed by Paramount Pictures.
The film’s final act mixes the animated characters in a live action world, much like Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The Smurfs, as well as the first film in the franchise, and was directed by Mike Mitchell. In this act, SpongeBob and other characters are rendered in computer animation.
Jupiter Ascending is a 2015 space opera film written, produced, and directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski. Starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, the film is centered on Jupiter Jones (Kunis), a down-on-her-luck cleaning woman, and Caine Wise (Tatum), an interplanetary warrior who informs Jones that her destiny extends beyond Earth. Supporting cast member Douglas Booth has described the film’s universe as a cross between The Matrix and Star Wars while Kunis named its underlying themes indulgence and consumption.
The film was co-produced by Grant Hill, who acted as executive producer on The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions and as producer on V for Vendetta, Speed Racer, Ninja Assassin, and Cloud Atlas, making Jupiter Ascending his seventh collaboration with the Wachowskis. Several more longstanding Wachowski collaborators since the creation of The Matrix films have contributed to the picture, including production designer Hugh Bateup, visual effects supervisor Dan Glass, visual effects designer John Gaeta, supervising sound editor Dane Davis and costume designer Kym Barrett. Other notable past collaborators include Speed Racer’s composer Michael Giacchino, Cloud Atlas’ director of photography John Toll along with its editor Alexander Berner and hair and make-up designer Jeremy Woodhead, who worked on both.
Seventh Son is a 2014 American epic fantasy film directed by Sergei Bodrov and starring Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges, and Julianne Moore. It features music composed by Marco Beltrami, who replaced A. R. Rahman and Tuomas Kantelinen. It is based on the novel The Spook’s Apprentice (titled The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch in America) by Joseph Delaney. The story centers on Thomas Ward, a seventh son of a seventh son, and his adventures as the apprentice of the Spook.
