Earth to Echo Movie Poster

Earth to Echo [PG]


Best friends Tuck (Astro), Munch (Reese Hartwig), and Alex (Teo Halm) are about to be torn apart by a highway construction project that is tearing up their neighborhood and forcing them all to move away. Two days before the friends are scheduled to say their goodbyes, they find their phones have been infected with a cryptic message that leads them on one final adventure. They're shocked to find the source of the message — a stranded alien, far from home and wanted by the government.

The boys embark on a wild adventure to help the little alien — dubbed "Echo" — one that will test the limits of their friendship and change their lives forever.

In theaters July 4.
