New Trailer for EARTH TO ECHO; A Found Footage Sci-Fi Adventure

earth-to-echo

The mockumentary/found footage style of filmmaking is a love-it or hate-it approach, and director Dave Green’s sci-fi family adventure film Earth to Echo is all up in a kid-centric found footage business.

A modern narrative twist on Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi masterpiece, E.T., is clearly aimed at a younger audience than something like Transformers.

Relativity’s newest sci-fi flick, which also looks like a cross of Chronicle and J.J. Abrams‘s Super 8, gets the new trailer,  poster and a world premiere date.

Earth to Echo stars Teo Halm, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Reese Hartwig, and Ella Linnea Wahlestedt, and opens July 2nd.

The trailer below features adorable little alien thing named Echo and kid actors look pretty damn good so far.

In Relativity’s PG summer family adventure movie, Tuck, Munch and Alex are a trio of inseparable friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on, they team up with another school friend, Emma, and set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.
