Drones

Now Playing Synopsis: Two Air Force pilots (Matt O'Leary and Eloise Mumford) in Nevada use a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to probe the Afghan mountain compound of a suspected Al Qaeda terrorist -- and perhaps terminate their elusive target -- in this topical thriller from director Rick Rosenthal (Halloween II, Bad Boys). When the mission goes unexpectedly awry, the two conflicted drone operators are forced to ask themselves whether their clandestine mission is truly crucial to the security of the American people. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Matt O'Leary, Eloise Mumford Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Earth to Echo

Now Playing Synopsis: A group of young friends come to the aid of a mysterious visitor from a distant planet in this kid-friendly sci-fi adventure in the tradition of E.T. and The Goonies. Shortly after a massive construction project begins driving out the residents of their serene Nevada neighborhood, best friends Tuck (Astro), Munch (Reese Hartwig), and Alex (Teo Halm) notice that their mobile phones are being flooded with a series of enigmatic, encoded messages. Determined to discover the source of the code as their families, too, pack up and prepare to go their separate ways, the trio venture out into the desert and find a diminutive alien they nickname "Echo," who needs their help to get back to his ship. Although their quest is complicated by a group of sinister construction workers on a mission to reach the ailing extraterrestrial first, Tuck, Munch, and Alex soon receive some unexpected help from their classmate Emma (Ella Linnea Wahlestedt). Together with Emma, these three friends might just have a shot at getting Echo back to the stars before he's captured and imprisoned by the shadowy figures who are closing in fast. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Teo Halm, Ella Linnea Wahlestedt, Reese Hartwig, Jason Gray-Stanford, Alga Smith Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
