Tuck, Munch and Alex are three young boys who make the discovery of a lifetime during an adventure on which they embark to discover what's going on behind the unusual coded messages on their cell phones. Filming their journey, they come across a shy but utterly adorable robotic alien creature with big lights for eyes who appears to possess a variety of unusual properties. It communicates with a series of strange electronic clicks and whirrs, it can't walk or fly but it can float along on the air, it can send electronic impulses through its limbs and can scan objects around it with its eyes. They attempt to help the creatute - which they christen Echo - become more mobile, while trying to discover whereabouts in the galaxy he has fallen from. They want to help Echo return home, but when the previously sceptical grown-ups start to get involved, they're inviting a whole load of danger.
'Earth To Echo' is a heart-warming sci-fi reminiscent of the likes of Steven Spielberg's benign alien movie 'E.T. The Extra Terrestrial'. It has been directed by Dave Green ('Zombie Roadkill') and written by Henry Gayden with Andrew Panay (producer of 'Wedding Crashers' and 'When in Rome'), and it is due to hit the UK on July 25th 2014.
Tuck, Munch and Alex are best friends who are tired of feeling socially invisible. All they feel they have is each other - and even that is something they will no longer have with the arrival of a huge construction project that will force all the residents of their neighbourhood to move away to different areas. In their last adventure, they discover that their cell phones have been acting up sending strange coded messages and an unusual map to each of them which both the police and their parents immediately dismiss. They decide to try and crack it themselves, filming their escapade along the way, and wind up stumbling across an adorable unearthly creature in the dark who seems to possess the power to construct objects with its mind. The friends name the alien Echo and decide to help it get back home, however when the grown-ups get involved, they find that they're all in some serious danger.

Tuck, Munch and Alex are three best friends who are about to make the discovery of a lifetime after strange events start occurring as their town becomes subject to a major construction venture. The boys start to receive a string of odd messages written in code on their cell phones - something they report to both their parents and the police when they persist. When their concerns are dismissed, they decide to try and decipher the code themselves, while also searching for the sender. They discover a strange canister by the construction site that, on close inspection, appears to emit some unearthly noises. Initially thinking it's a bomb, the terrified boys retreat, but they soon discover that their text messages are SOS calls from the object, which contains an abandoned alien creature in dire need of their help.

Good to see they're still trying to make 'em. Screen Door Jesus is just one of these rural fables: A small film with a lot of emotion that struggles desperately to make a point. Unfortunately in this case, it's actually a whole bunch of points about Jesus, religion, race relations, poverty, and all manner of small town concerns.
