This Thursday April 22nd is Earth Day and Disney is celebrating with the release of their newest documentary extraordinaire - “OCEANS”.
Nearly three—quarters of the Earth's surface is covered by water and OCEANS chronicles the mysteries that lie beneath. Directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud dive deep into the very waters that sustain all of mankind—exploring the harsh reality and the amazing creatures that live within. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan and featuring spectacular never before seen imagery captured by the latest underwater technologies, OCEANS offers an unprecedented look beneath the sea in a powerful motion picture that unfolds on April 22, 2010.
During the movie’s first week (April 22-28), Disneynature is dedicating a portion of the ticket sales to The Nature Conservancy’s work to save coral reefs in the Bahamas. According to Disney, so far 400,000 moviegoers have purchased advanced tickets, which translates to more than 790 acres of protected marine area!
“With 400,000 tickets sold so far, Disneynature's second film is making a huge splash and saving coral reefs along the way—and "OCEANS" hasn't even opened yet,” said Chuck Viane, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures' President of Distribution. “Coral reefs are essential to the global ecosystem; we’re already on our way to establishing more than 790 acres of new marine protected areas—that’s the equivalent of about 600 football fields or nearly the size of New York City’s Central Park—and sales are still going strong.”
