Plenty of film-makers have aimed to replicate the Spielberg style, with only the recent Super 8 getting truly close. However, a new film set for release this summer looks set to join J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster in that elite club.
Earth to Echo focuses on the lives of three friends as they face the end of their bond. Their neighbourhood is being torn down and their families are moving in separate directions. Just before this happens, they find a strange message on their phones, and this leads to one final adventure with a mysterious being.
Directed by Dave Green and produced by Relativity Media, Earth to Echo has clear shades of E.T. and The Goonies, so it’s a must-see for Spielberg fans. Even if it wasn’t for those connections, there are so few coming of age films like this around these days that it’s well worth supporting those that do come along.
So check out the trailer and get behind Earth to Echo. Green is on both Twitter and Tumblr, and those links are below along with the film’s official social pages. Like, follow and support this film.
So proud of the Maximum Comics- exclusive cover for Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terror #1 by the visionary Jeff Lemire! His interpretation of Rock is one of my favorites to date.
Expect to see me and Daniel back in Vegas at the beginning of May to support the new series, as we will definitely be back on the road promoting both the new series and the release of Volume One: Born to Lose.
