Paramount Hollywood is bringing its Californian movie magic to its Birmingham UK namesake!
and live on Freeview channel 276
The geniuses behind the Queen’s Jubilee drone show, who wowed millions with the light display above Buckingham Palace, featuring images of a giant corgi, are working their magic again - but this time with Spongebob Squarepants, just outside Birmingham!
The drones will fly 600ft in the air above Hollywood Golf Club, in Bromsgrove, at 10.30pm on Tuesday June 21st, recreating iconic characters and scenes from Star Trek, Spongebob Squarepants and Mission: Impossible to mark the launch of new streaming service, Paramount+.
Uma Thurman, Jack Whitehall and Naomie Harris have also teamed up to create a star-studded film, alongside a struggling intern, dubbed Paramount Pete.
The two-minute video, which you can see at the top of this story, was filmed in the UK and follows Pete on his first day as he attempts to get hundreds of coffee orders right for superstars, such as Trixie Mattel, Christina Ricci, Miranda Cosgrove, Sonequa Martin-Green, Halo’s Master Chief and Scream’s Ghost Face.
Co-founder and director of SKYMAGIC, the firm behind the Queen’s Jubilee drone show, Mungo Denison, said: “This show has taken months to finesse due to the attention to detail required to give a faithful representation of the various characters we are depicting.
"It is quite a romp through Paramount’s most extraordinarily well-known characters and iconic images. It’s a phenomenal programming line up.
"This is the largest drone show the UK has ever seen and where better to showcase this content but Hollywood. We will light up the night there.”
The drone show will also feature a QR code which viewers will be able to scan and be treated to a free seven-day trial of the streaming service.
Paramount+, which will be available in the UK and Ireland from 22 June, will include exclusive originals, blockbuster films from Paramount Pictures and a wide selection of its most iconic shows, including HALO, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, The First Lady and kids’ favourites Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years and PAW Patrol: The Movie.
