Like the Planet Earth series before it, the new Oceans movie aims to present the fascination of nature in the most magnificent light possible. Using state of the art underwater filming technologies and thousands of hours diving, DisneyNature and Participant media have produced a film which will not only awe the audience into compassion for delicate marine ecosystems but it also places a strong emphasis on stewardship from teh rivers to the sea. We have not yet seen this film but judging from the trailer, it will only be matter of time before we are sat down to watch it. Unlike many movies which spend 90% of the time wowing viewers with amazing footage throughout the flick and then 10% telling us how it’s all gonna die, it seems that Oceans takes a cautionary tone throughout the movie but refrains from being too alarmist. Furthermore, the Oceans movie is donating a portion of their proceeds from opening week to marine environmental causes. Furthermore, the Oceans movie also has a fairly detailed website and blog about how we can reduce our impact on marine environments in our everyday lives.
