The first 'SpongeBob Movie' trailer has risen from the depths of Bikini Bottom, following an initial look at Comic-Con 2014, and our Squarepants-wearing hero and his buddies have taken a note from the 'Avengers' movies and have become live-action superheroes. Is this the "gritty" and "dark" version of 'SpongeBob Squarepants'? No, not really.

While the footage is slightly different from what was screened at Comic-Con this past weekend, the 'SpongeBob Movie' trailer promises the film will feature everything kids and stoners alike have loved about the cartoon series. From Nickelodeon, we know this of the film: "SpongeBob goes on a quest to discover a stolen recipe that takes him to our dimension, our world, where he tangles with a pirate." But there's more to it than that! Apparently Bikini Bottom is in jeopardy after the mentioned pirate imposes his will on SpongeBob and Bikini Bottom by writing in a magical book of some sort ... yeah, it's slightly confusing, but it's SpongeBob! So, we're excited.

'The SpongeBob Movie,' appropriately subtitled 'Sponge Out of Water,' will hit theaters in 3D on February 13, 2015.
