Earth To Echo
A Group Of Friends Make An Otherworldly Discovery In 'Earth To Echo.'

The film marks a return to the Spielbergian filmmaking and evokes the wonderment and emotion of E.T. mixed with the drama and realism of found footage thriller, Super 8. The kids central to the film's plot track their movements with a camcorder, which lends a real intimacy and personality to this exciting summer release.

Tuck (Astro), Munch (Reese Hartwig) and Alex (Teo Halm) are three best friends who are bored of feeling like they don't exist to anyone else. They prepare to part ways due to the arrival of a huge construction project that is splitting up their neighbourhood. As one final adventure together, the boys decide to investigate the strange coded messages and maps they keep getting on their cell phones.
