A summer movie your kids won't want to miss

Three boys discover a strange signal on their cell phones that could prove the existence of alien life-forms. The mysterious messages ultimately lead our young daredevils on the adventure of the summer. Watch our exclusive clip to see more.

In this "movie for the selfie generation," Alex (Teo Halm), Tuck (Astro) and Munch (Reese C. Hartwig) are three inseparable friends whose neighborhood is about to be torn apart by a highway construction project that will cause each of their families to move apart.

Two days before the move, each boy discovers that an alarming message with a strange map has hijacked his cell phone.

The cell phones turn on and actually become the eyes of Echo; he sees the world through their phones and their adventures are documented via a Go-Pro camera.

"A couple of seconds ago, our phones went crazy, bananas, insane — I don't even know what to call it. Look, you see that? It's a new map, but on my phone this time," says Tuck, as he speaks into the camera.

The boys have to choose whether to follow the mysterious clues on their phones or ignore what could be the most exciting adventure of their young lives.

Perhaps having watched E.T. one too many times, the boys can't help but think these unusual signals are alien in nature. After all, if humans want to get in touch, they simply call or text. What the boys are about to discover will change their understanding of life as we know it.

If you're a fan of the former Fox show The X-Factor, you may already be familiar with young rapper Astro, who plays Tuck. While he may have clashed with Simon Cowell, it seems both Astro's music and acting careers are alive and well.

Hartwig, who plays Munch, will also appear in the upcoming film Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, starring Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell. It is set to release in October of this year.

Earth to Echo opens in theaters on July 2.
