Nickelodeon Movies is the motion picture production arm of Nickelodeon, launched on February 25, 1995. Its first film was Harriet the Spy. It has produced family features and films based on Nickelodeon programs, as well as other adaptations and original projects. The films are released by Viacom division Paramount Pictures. It has currently produced at least 36 films. Their current top-grossing film is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

History

In 1993, Nickelodeon set a deal with 20th Century Fox to make movies based on Doug, The Ren & Stimpy Show and Rugrats. However, none of the films would be made through the Fox deal due to the 1994 acquisition of Paramount Pictures by Viacom. The proposed Doug film would not be made due to the 1996 sale of the show's producing studio to Disney and that show's move to ABC, while creative differences with Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi and an inability to market the property in a family-friendly manner scuttled that film. (Doug would eventually have its own feature film, Doug's 1st Movie, come to the big screen through Disney in 1999.)

Nickelodeon Movies was then founded on February 25, 1995, through the purchase of Paramount. On July 10, 1996, the studio released its first film, Harriet the Spy, a spy-comedy-drama film based on the 1964 novel of the same name.

On July 25, 1997, the studio then released its first film based on one of the network's shows - Good Burger, a comedy film, starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. It was based on the recurring sketch of the same name from All That.

On November 20, 1998, the studio released The Rugrats Movie, its first film based on a Nicktoon. The film starred the original show's voice cast, as well as new voice cast member, Tara Strong as Dil Pickles, Tommy's newborn brother, and guest starring Tim Curry as greedy news reporter Rex Pester, and David Spade and Whoopi Goldberg as forest rangers Frank and Margaret. The film received mixed critical reception, but became a box office success, earning $100,494,675 in the domestic box office and $140,894,675 worldwide.[1] It was the first non-Disney animated film to gross over $100 million, and the studio's first film to receive a G rating from the MPAA. The success of the film would spawn two sequels.

On February 11, 2000, the studio released Snow Day, a comedy film starring Chris Elliott, Zena Grey, Josh Peck and Emmanuelle Chriqui. This film met negative reviews and grossed $62,464,731 worldwide.

Nine months later, the studio released Rugrats in Paris: The Movie on November 17, 2000. It was the studio's first sequel film, and grossed $76,507,756 at the domestic box-office and $103,291,131 worldwide.[2] The critical reception met with favorable reviews, becoming the most acclaimed Rugrats film. It starred the series' original cast members once again, and guest starred Susan Sarandon as Coco LaBouche, a cruel and child-hating director at EuroReptarland in Paris, John Lithgow as Jean-Claude, Coco's partner, and also introducing new cast members, Dionne Quan as Kimi Watanabe, a naive and fearless girl who becomes Chuckie's stepsister, and Julia Kato as Kira Watanabe, Coco's assistant and Kimi's mother.

On December 21, 2001, the studio released its first CGI animated film, Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius. It became a critical and box-office success, earning $80,936,232 and $102,992,536 worldwide. It starred voice actors, Debi Derryberry, Rob Paulsen, Carolyn Lawrence, Jeffrey Garcia, and Candi Milo, as well starring Martin Short and Patrick Stewart. On March 24, 2002, this movie was nominated for the first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, making it the first Nickelodeon film to be nominated for an Academy Award; unfortunately, it lost to Shrek.[3]

On March 29, 2002, the studio released Clockstoppers, a sci-fi action film, starring Jesse Bradford, Paula Garcés, and French Stewart. This film received negative reviews and was not a box office success, only earning $36,989,956 in the United States and $38,793,283 worldwide.

On June 28, 2002, Nickelodeon Movies released Hey Arnold!: The Movie, starring the series' original cast members and guest starring Paul Sorvino as Alphonse Perrier du von Scheck, the CEO of a real estate company called Future Tech Industries (FTi). It met with mixed to positive critical reception but was a box office failure, only grossed $13,728,902 domestic wide and $15,249,308 worldwide. It was originally going to be a TV film, titled Arnold Saves the Neighborhood, but executives of Paramount Pictures decided to release this film theatrically. It was the first animated film from Nickelodeon to get a PG rating.

In 2002 and 2003, the studio, along with Klasky Csupo released two films based on the popular TV shows, The Wild Thornberrys Movie and Rugrats Go Wild, respectively. The Wild Thornberrys Movie was released on December 20, 2002, starring the show's original cast members, Lacey Chabert, Tim Curry, Jodi Carlisle, Danielle Harris, Michael "Flea" Balzary, and Tom Kane. This film received positive reviews, but only grossed $40,108,697 domestic wide and $60,694,737 worldwide. On March 23, 2003, this film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.[4]

Rugrats Go Wild was later released on June 13, 2003, once again starring the series's original cast members, with new guest stars, Chrissie Hynde as Siri the clouded leopard, Tony Jay, Ethan Phillips, and Bruce Willis as Spike's speaking voice. This film met with mixed to negative critical reception, and unlike the previous Rugrats movies, was not a box office success, only earning $39,402,572 in the United States and $55,405,066. This film is also the only Rugrats film to receive a PG rating,[5]

On November 19, 2004, Nickelodeon released The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, an adventure comedy film based on SpongeBob SquarePants. The film was directed by the series' creator, Stephen Hillenburg, and stars the show's voice cast of Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass, Doug Lawrence, and guest starring Jeffrey Tambor as King Neptune, Scarlett Johansson as Princess Mindy, Alec Baldwin as Dennis, and David Hasselhoff as himself. This film became a box office hit earning $85,417,988 in the United States box office and grossed $140,161,792 at the worldwide box office.[6] The success of this film spawned a sequel,[7] adapted into various media, including its own video game, soundtrack, toy line, and, eventually, continued the series's run, whereas the series was renewed for a fourth season. However, the series' creator Stephen Hillenburg left the show, with Paul Tibbitt took over the series' duty, but Hillenburg remained the executive producer until his death in 2018.

Following the release of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Nickelodeon Movies returned to making box-office hits. The studio purchased the film rights of the A Series of Unfortunate Events book series in May 2000.[8] Paramount Pictures, owner of Nickelodeon Movies, agreed to co-finance, along with Scott Rudin.[9] Various directors, including Terry Gilliam and Roman Polanski, were interested in making the film. One of author Daniel Handler's favorite candidates was Guy Maddin. In June 2002, Barry Sonnenfeld was hired to direct. He was chosen because he previously collaborated with Rudin and because of his black comedy directing style from The Addams Family, Addams Family Values and Get Shorty.[10] Sonnenfeld referred to the Lemony Snicket books as his favorite children's stories.[11] The director hired Handler to write the script[12] with the intention of making Lemony Snicket as a musical, and cast Jim Carrey as Count Olaf in September 2002.[12] This film was released on December 17, 2004, a month later after The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie was released. It became a huge box office success, earning $118,634,549 at the United States box office and $209,073,645 worldwide, and winning an Academy Award for Best Makeup in 2005.

In 2005, the studio and Paramount Classics purchased a documentary film, Mad Hot Ballroom at the 2005 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. It became the studios' first and (so far, the) only documentary film and to have a limited theatrical release. It grossed $8,117,961 domestic wide and $9,079,042 worldwide. It also was a huge critical success.

Several months later, the studio and Paramount Pictures started their first co-production with Columbia Pictures and Metro Goldwyn Mayer to create a comedy film, Yours, Mine and Ours, a remake of the 1968 film of the same name. This film starred Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo. It was critically panned, but was a modest box office success, earning $53,412,862 in the United States and $72,028,752 worldwide.

On June 16, 2006, Nickelodeon released a comedy-drama film, Nacho Libre, very loosely based on the story of Fray Tormenta. This film stars Jack Black, Héctor Jiménez, and Ana de la Reguera. This film met with mixed critical reception, but was a box office success, earning $80,197,993 in the domestic box office and grossed $99,255,460 worldwide. A sequel to this film is being considered.[13][14]

Two months later, the studio released another CGI film, titled Barnyard: The Original Party Animals, starring the voices of Kevin James, as Otis, a carefree bull who loves throwing parties, David Koechner as Dag, a red coyote, Sam Elliott as Ben, Otis' father and the leader of the barnyard, and voice actors Jeff Garcia, S. Scott Bullock, Maurice LaMarche, John DiMaggio, and Rob Paulsen. This film met with negative critical reception, but was a box office success, earning $72,637,803 at the United States box office and grossed $116,476,887 worldwide. Like Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, the film's success spawned into a TV show, Back at the Barnyard, which ran from 2007 to 2011. Chris Hardwick replaced Kevin James as the role for Otis.

On August 21, 2006, Nickelodeon Movies and MTV Films became full labels of the Paramount Motion Pictures Group.

On December 15, 2006, the studio released Charlotte's Web, a family drama film based on E. B. White's popular book of the same name, starring Dakota Fanning, Kevin Anderson, Beau Bridges, and the voices of Dominic Scott Kay, Julia Roberts, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Oprah Winfrey, and Cedric the Entertainer. This film became a critical and box office success, earning $82,985,708 domestic wide and $144,877,632 worldwide. This is Nickelodeon's first G-rated film in five years and is the studio's highest-grossing film with that rating. Dakota Fanning won a Blimp Award for Favorite Movie Actress at the 2007 Kids' Choice Awards.

Two years later on February 14, 2008, the studio released The Spiderwick Chronicles, a fantasy drama film based on the bestselling book of the same name, starring Freddie Highmore, Sarah Bolger, Mary-Louise Parker, Martin Short, Nick Nolte, and Seth Rogen. This film was released in both regular and IMAX theaters and received favorable reviews and was a box office success, earning $71,195,053 domestic wide and $162,839,667 outside the United States.

On July 28, 2008, Nickelodeon Movies released the coming-of-age comedy film Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging, based on two bestselling British novels by Louise Rennison. This film was released in theaters in the United Kingdom, earning £8,647,770 euros and grossed $13,835,569 worldwide. To date, it has no theatrical release in the United States, but has made its U.S. premiere on Nick at Nite on March 12, 2009. This film also received a PG-13 rating from the MPAA, becoming the first ever film from Nickelodeon Movies to receive that rating.

On January 16, 2009, Hotel for Dogs was released, starring Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin and based on the 1971 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan. This film received mixed reviews but was a box office success, earning $117 million worldwide. It was distributed by DreamWorks, making it the first film from Nickelodeon to be distributed outside of Paramount Pictures.

Five months later, on June 12, 2009, Paramount reunited with Nickelodeon Movies and released Imagine That, a comedy-drama film starring Eddie Murphy Thomas Haden Church, Nicole Ari Parker, Martin Sheen, Marin Hinkle, and Yara Shahidi. This film received mixed reviews, mainly criticizing Murphy's performance, and earned him a Golden Raspberry Award nomination for Worst Actor in 2010, only to lose to The Jonas Brothers' performances in Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. It was also a box office failure, only earning $22 million worldwide.

On January 8, 2007, Paramount and Nickelodeon announced that they had signed M. Night Shyamalan to write, direct and produce a trilogy of live-action films based on Avatar: The Last Airbender, the first of which would encompass the main characters' adventures in Book One.[15] This film, notably the first live-action film based on a Nicktoon, was released on July 1, 2010. It was universally panned by critics, fans, and even from audiences that weren't familiar with the TV series. It received nine nominations at the 31st Golden Raspberry Awards and won the most awards in 2011, including Worst Picture.[16] On its opening day in the United States, The Last Airbender made $16 million, ranking fifth overall for Thursday openings.[17] Despite negative critical reception, the film grossed over $318 million worldwide.

On March 4, 2011, Nickelodeon Movies released Rango, a CGI-animated western-comedy film directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by his production company Blind Wink and Graham King's GK Films. The CGI animation was created by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), marking its first full-length animated feature.[18] This film was met with universal acclaim from critics and general audiences alike and won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. The success of Rango ended Paramount's partnership with DreamWorks Animation to create its own animation studio Paramount Animation.

Nine months later, Paramount and Nickelodeon partnered with Columbia Pictures once again and released The Adventures of Tintin, a performance captured animated 3D film directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson, and based on three of the popular comic book series of the same name by Hergé. This film became a huge box office success, earning over $373 million worldwide.[19] It became the first non-Pixar film to win a Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film, and the first Nickelodeon film to do so.

On February 28, 2012, a sequel to The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie was announced to be in production, originally scheduled to be released in late 2014. The sequel was directed by Paul Tibbitt, written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, produced by Mary Parent, and executive produced by series creator Stephen Hillenburg.[20] The series' cast members are set to reprise their roles from the first film.[21] The sequel would have the same style of animation (traditional animation) as the TV show was.[22]

Following the news of the 2009 Viacom buyout of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, it was announced that Nickelodeon would produce a new film through Paramount with an expected 2012 release date.[23] In late May 2011, it was announced that Paramount and Nickelodeon had brought Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form on to produce the next film that will reboot the film series.[24] Bay, Fuller and Form would produce alongside Walker and Mednick. For the script, the studio originally hired Matt Holloway and Art Marcum to write the film for close to a million dollars. A year later, the studio turned to writers Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec to rewrite the script.[24][25] In February 2012, Jonathan Liebesman was brought into negotiations to direct the film. It was released in the summer of 2014. This film received a PG-13 rating, becoming the third film from Nickelodeon to receive that rating, and the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film to do so.

Fun Size, a Halloween comedy film, opened on October 26, 2012, starring Victoria Justice, Johnny Knoxville, and Thomas Mann. This film received a PG-13 rating, becoming the second film from Nickelodeon to receive that rating. It opened to negative critical reviews and became a box office flop.

On October 23, 2017, Paramount, Nickelodeon, Walden Media, Media Rights Capital and filmmaker Nicholas Stoller announced Dora and the Lost City of Gold, a live-action film adaptation of Dora the Explorer that was released in August 2019.

On November 13, 2017, it was announced that a film adaptation of Are You Afraid of the Dark? was in production at Paramount Players. It writer Gary Dauberman is set to write the screenplay with Matt Kaplan producing. A release date has not been announced.

On August 24, 2021, ViacomCBS uploaded a video on YouTube confirming new SpongeBob SquarePants, Blue's Clues & You!, The Smurfs and Avatar: The Last Airbender theatrical films in the works[26].
