The summer may not officially start until June 21, but the summer blockbusters have clearly arrived. Spidey swung into theaters earlier this season and is still sticking around while Captain Jack Sparrow embarked on his latest journey taking moviegoers to the end of the world. But both movies could soon be old news now that Oceans 13 hits theaters ... TODAY!
I can't think of a better day for Oceans 13 to debut, since today is none other than World Ocean Day!
World Ocean Day was created in 1992 at the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit, put on by the UN. Ever since, thousands have celebrated the oceans' importance and their personal connections with them. But, unfortunately, for the past 15 years this honorary day has remained an unofficial celebration because the UN has failed to formally designate June 8th as World Ocean Day every year. This symbolic action is a great opportunity to recognize our oceans, and any chance to do that is a good thing.

Oceans provide us with food, they regulate climate and generate oxygen, so it doesn't matter if you reside on the coast or farther inland; the ocean in some way impacts your everyday life. Such a broad scope of effect is something worth celebrating.
