In the movie Earth To Echo, after a construction project begins digging in their neighborhood, best friends Tuck, Munch and Alex inexplicably begin to receive strange, encoded messages on their cell phones.
Convinced something bigger is going on, they go to their parents and the authorities. When everyone around them refuses to take the messages seriously, the three embark on a secret adventure to crack the code and follow it to its source.
But taking matters into their own hands gets the trio in way over their heads when they discover a mysterious being from another world who desperately needs their help. The epic, suspenseful and exciting journey that follows will change all of their lives forever.
Reminiscent of E.T., the movie Earth To Echo tries to hit one out of the ball park.
However, there is no doubt that the movie will be a box office bomb, solely because it is being released by Relativity Media, which has never had a box office hit, i.e., a movie that has earned over $100 million.
In fact, Disney made the found-footage film about a tiny alien robot but put it into turnaround last summer. Relativity paid $13 million to acquire the movie and do reshoots but that won’t help Earth To Echo at the movie box office.
