Kids and aliens! It's a movie staple, unless you are J.J. Abrams and decide that YOUR lovable film of space wonder should be bookended with just so much alien-on-human murder. Thank goodness this new trailer for the indie film Earth to Echo channels all sorts of heart.

This film is directed by Dave Green, and here's the official synopsis:

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.

Bring on the WONDER! Earth to Echo will premiere on April 25th, 2014.
